After adding another Wimbledon title to his trophy cabinet this summer, Novak Djokovic recently announced he'd be taking part in this year's Laver Cup. The Laver Cup takes place in September and pits Team Europe against Team World, with each team boasting six players to take part in a series of matches. So far, Team Europe's line-up has announced four members of its roster, with Novak Djokovic the latest addition joining Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Andy Murray. There are still two places up for grabs in the squad, but Europe's line-up has already started to draw attention.

"It's the only competition where you can play in a team environment with guys that you're normally competing against," said Djokovic. "To be joining Rafa, Roger and Andy - three of my biggest all-time rivals - it's going to be a truly unique moment in the history of our sport." Two Team Europe roster spots have yet to be announced, while Canada's Felix Auger-Aliassime, America's Taylor Fritz and Argentina's Diego Schwartzman have so far been named in Team World's six-strong squad. Unbeaten Team Europe are bidding for a fifth successive Laver Cup triumph having won in Prague 2017, Chicago 2018, Geneva 2019 and Boston 2021.

Former world number one Bjorn Borg, who will be captaining Team Europe, added: "I don't think I could have imagined having these four icons of the sport on one team together. "I know they, like I, appreciate the significance of this moment and will be truly up for it. Each year our goal is to win. With Rafa, Roger, Andy and Novak on the team, I like our chances."
