What format is the Laver Cup played?

The Laver Cup is a team event in which the best tennis players in Europe are measured against the best in the rest of the world, with the winner being the first team to get to 13 points.

How do you get those points? With victories in the matches. 

Each day three singles matches and one doubles match are played, to the best of three sets with the last being disputed as a 10-point tie-break match format. 

Friday’s wins are worth one point, Saturday’s two points and Sunday’s three points – which ensures that no team can become champion before the last day.

All players play at least one singles match between Friday and Saturday and at least four of them participate in doubles.

Who won the previous editions of the Laver Cup?

Team Europe had won all four editions of the Laver Cup until Team World clinched the 2022 edition.
