Held on the same weekend (24 to 26 September) as Ryder Cup 2020 is Laver Cup 2021, a tennis tournament that sees six top European players go up against six of their counterparts from the rest of the world.
The question on every tennis fan's lips is, will Team World finally topple the dominant Team Europe?
Each team is made up of six players with three picked based on their ATP singles ranking on the Monday after Roland-Garros and the remainder are “captain’s picks”, announced by the start of the US Open. Each team is also led by a team captain, who is a legend of the sport. For this year, the captain of Team Europe is Swedish legend and Rolex Testimonee Bjorn Borg, and the captain of Team World is American tennis great John McEnroe. Both are reprising their roles for the fourth time in a row.
While the location of the Laver Cup tournament rotates between Europe and cities from the rest of the world each year, the 2021 edition is held on the indoor hard courts at the TD Garden in Boston, US.
