Federer and Nadal to team up in Laver Cup

Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal say they plan to play doubles together when the Laver Cup debuts next year.

With a combined 31 major titles, Federer and Nadal have committed to the inaugural event, which is an attempt to create a tennis version of golf’s Ryder Cup.

Named to honour Australian tennis great Rod Laver, the competition was first announced in January.

A team of European players will face off against a group from the rest of the world in Prague from September 22-24, 2017.

Former rivals Bjorn Borg (Europe) and John McEnroe (World team) were announced on Wednesday as captains.
