Dominic Thiem will make a third appearance for Team Europe at next year’s Laver Cup, with the US Open champion joining Roger Federer on the side.

Europe have won all three previous editions, the last edition played in September, 2019, in Geneva.

The international competition between Europe and rest of the World will be staged next September 24-26 in Boston after not being played this year due to COVID-19.

“The Laver Cup is a fantastic event and I’m really excited to be a part of Team Europe for the Boston edition,” the weekend runner-up at the ATP Finals in London said.

“I’ve been lucky enough to be on the winning side at two of the three Laver Cups so far – in Prague and Geneva, and it’s a really unique event, like no other on the tour.  I’m really looking forward to helping Team Europe capture a fourth title.

“It’s so cool to be competing as part of a team with guys I’m normally facing across the net. We have so much fun together, but I also still learn a lot from the likes of Roger and Bjorn, who have so much experience in the game.”

Europe is headed by icon Bjorn Borg, with John McEnroe serving as captain of the opposition.

“Dom has had an incredible season, despite the unprecedented circumstances. He consistently performs at the top level and it was great to see him win his first Slam earlier in the year in New York,” Borg said.

“With him and Roger confirmed I feel we’ve got a great foundation, but for sure we’ll need to be in top form/

Team World gets tougher and tougher every year and my great friend and rival John McEnroe will be hungrier than ever to win in front of a home crowd!”
