2022 Laver Cup: Roger Federer’s final match, schedule, how to stream, more

The Laver Cup 2022, an often overlooked event in the sporting world, is now taking center stage after it was revealed that legend Roger Federer would be retiring from the sport following the event. His final match will be a doubles match with Rafael Nadal against American Jack Sock and US Open star Frances Tiafoe.

The Laver Cup is an ATP event that pits Team Europe against Team World in a competition that should be viewed similar to the Ryder Cup in golf.

The event has only been in existence for four years and Team Europe have so far dominated with a perfect 4-0. They won the inaugural event in Prague, Czech Republic, 15-9, and the following year they earned a 13-8 victory in Chicago. In 2019 they won a closer matchup, 13-11 in Geneva before taking a year off due to COVID and then wrecking Team World 14-1 in Boston last year.

Obviously, Team Europe is hoping to continue this and send Federer out on a high note.

How does the Laver Cup work?

The two teams consist of six players, with three players qualifying via their ATP rankings and three being specially selected by the captains.

There will be twelve matches played over three days, with play each day consisting of three singles matches and one doubles. All matches will be played as best-of-three sets, with a 10-point tie-break to determine the winner if a third set goes
