Italian Fabio Fognini has been confirmed as part of Team Europe for this year’s Laver Cup.
Fognini has been selected in captain Bjorn Borg’s Team Europe for the first time and will play alongside Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Dominic Thiem and Alexander Zverev against Team World in the tournament in Geneva this September.
I’m very excited to be playing the Laver Cup in September,
Playing as part of a team is special in tennis, where we are more used to having a one-on-one battle every match.
I’m looking forward to competing alongside all the great players on Team Europe.”
Team Europe have won the first two editions of the tournament and will be aiming for a hat-trick in Switzerland against a side again set to be captained by US great John McEnroe.
