2020 US Open champion Dominic Thiem will return to Laver Cup 2021. Thiem was part of the Team Europe that won the title in 2019. The 2020 Laver Cup that was supposed to be held in Boston was postponed to 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Laver Cup confirmed Thiem’s participation through a social media post.
Since the tournament is owned by Roger Federer’s management company, Team 8 Sports And Entertainment, Federer is certain to play if he is fit. Alexander Zverev, who is represented by Team 8 is also likely to play.
Will Novak Djokovic or Rafael Nadal play?
Laver will move the O2 Arena in London in 2022. Prior editions of the Laver Cup have been held in Geneva, Chicago, and Prague.
