Laver Cup 2019 kicked-off to a blockbuster Dominic Thiem show with the crowd in Palexpo, Geneva, also witnessing local hero and Tennis great Roger Federer in action. Federer didn’t play a singles match but the packed stadium in Geneva got a taste of watching their superstar in a double game alongside Team Europe partner Alexander Zverev. Team Europe – led by the three giants of Men’s Tennis – are the defending champions of the Laver Cup and have won all the editions ever since the mega Tennis extravaganza (September 20 to 22) set-off in 2017. But World No 1 Novak Djokovic’s absence from Team Europe and Rafael Nadal's apparent injury will give Team World enough hope. Catch every detail regarding Laver Cup 2019 online streaming and live telecast below.
Djokovic and Nadal shared all four Grand Slams of 2019 among themselves with the Serbian winning the Australian Open and Wimbledon, while World No 2 Nadal sealed record 12th French Open title and a fourth US Open last month. But while Djokovic is absent from Team Europe, Nadal despite his presence is a major doubt and might not play at all. Team World led by legend John McEnroe will eye their maiden title even as Team Europe aim for a hat-trick of wins.
