Djokovic will make his first appearance at the event since the 2018 edition held in Chicago. The tournament will also have Federer returning to competitive tennis for the first time since his loss to Hubert Hurkacz in the 2021 Wimbledon quarterfinal.
Team World, led by John McEnroe, comprises Felix Auger-Aliassime (Canada), Taylor Fritz (USA), Diego Schwartzman (Argentina), Alex de Minaur (Australia), John Isner (USA) and Jack Sock (USA).

Format of Laver Cup
Five sessions played over three days (Friday-Sunday).
It is ‘best of three sets’ format for every match. In case of split sets, the third set is a 10-point match tiebreaker.
Each player has to play at least one singles match during the first two days. However, no player can play singles more than twice during the three days.
At least four of the six players must play doubles. No doubles combination is played more than once, unless for the Decider on Day 3, if points are 12:12.
Each match win is worth one point on Friday, two points on Saturday, and three points on Sunday. The first team to reach 13 points wins.
In the event of a tie after all 12 matches are played, a final overtime doubles match – a decider – is played as a regular set with ad scoring and a tiebreak.
