After Andy Murray’s match against Alex de Minaur, which begins at 7 p.m. local time, the Swiss and Spaniard will play Jack Sock and Frances Tiafoe at The 02 in London.

“I am not sure if I will be able to handle it all but I will try,” Federer said during Team Europe’s post-tournament press conference. “I’ve had some tough moments in the past, being horribly nervous. All these years. This match feels a whole lot different. Playing with Rafa feels really different.”

“To be part of this historic moment is amazing and unforgettable for me,” Nadal said during the press conference. “I am super excited and I hope I can play at a good level. Hopefully, together we can create a good moment and hopefully win a match.”

The Laver Cup will be Federer’s final tournament, the 103 tour-level champion said this last week. Team Europe will compete against Team World in a series of singles and doubles matches throughout the three-day tournament, which gets underway on Friday.
