Boston to host 2020 Laver Cup

The weekend saw a thrilling clash of titans on the tennis court as Team Europe just edged Team World to victory in the most compelling and thrilling Laver Cup to date.

Bjorn Borg’s men were able to stall a World fight-back to stage one of their own as Roger Federer and Alexander Zverev claimed the points in the final two must-win matches to clinch Europe their third title.

The event was hosted in the city of Geneva, the home-town of the most decorated tennis player of all-time, Federer, but next year it’s the United States who will host the ever-growing event that’s just three tournaments old.

The annual event will be hosted in Boston, where Borg and John McEnroe will return to face each other once more with some of the finest tennis players in the game competing to win the Ryder Cup-inspired competition.

The tournament was invented by Roger Federer and Rod Laver himself, two legends of the game, and its popularity is growing year-on-year as the competition continues to deliver more thrilling tennis than first imagined.

With a shortened match format in place, games are more on a knife-edge and more tense than in the early sets of Grand Slam best-of-five tennis, and that adds high stakes when combined with the passion and pride of the supporting team cheering on their competitors and delivering advice on the sideline.

The tournament has brought team comradery and tactical diversity to Tennis like never before, and Boston will be latest to host this unique event, with the other previous hosts being Prague (2017) and Chicago (2018).
