Federer-Backed Laver Cup Brings in Sponsors Despite Missing Stars on Court

The Laver Cup, Roger Federer’s latest contribution to tennis, is enjoying much of the same sponsorship success as the man who founded it. Named after the Australian tennis legend Rod Laver, the only tennis player to win the calendar-year Grand Slam twice, the tournament was created by Federer and his agent Tony Godsick, the president and CEO of TEAM8, back in 2017.

Team World seeks to Win on Day 2 of Laver Cup Tennis 2021

No. 3 Stefanos Tsitsipas | Team Europe vs. No. 95 Nick Kyrgios | Team World. The points are doubled up on Day 2 at the 2021 Laver Cup, putting Aussie Nick Kyrgios in a position to level the proceedings with a win over Greek superstar Stefanos Tsitsipas. Having fallen to No. 95 in the ATP rankings, Kyrgios will come in as the underdog against Tsitsipas, who earlier this year reached his first major final at Roland Garros (l. to Novak Djokovic, 6-7(6) 2-6 6-3 6-2 6-4). But the 26-year-old will carry some confidence into the match having defeated Tsitsipas in their two previous encounters, including a tight 7-6(7) 6-7(3) 7-6(5) decision in January at the ATP Cup in Melbourne. Plus, the longtime Boston Celtics devotee will be all but playing on home turf at TD Garden. “I think everyone knows how special it is to be in such a great arena with so much history and so much sporting greatness to come out of this building, to be a part of it,” said Kyrgios.
