What is the 2022 Laver Cup schedule?
On the first day of the Laver Cup on Friday, September 22, there will be three singles matches followed by one doubles match.
Here is the full schedule for 1 day:
Breaking down the competition over the next three days, there is no doubt that Team Europe will take the title on Sunday. The depth within Team Europe is quite remarkable.
Match 1: Casper Ruud vs. Jack Sock
First day, Norwegian Casper Ruud against American Jack Sock should be a quick and straight win for the world’s No. 2 European team player and US Open runner-up.
The only advantage for the American may be his comfortable team play as he enters the tournament with the same number of Laver Cup appearances as Roger Federer, John Isner, Nick Kyrgios and Alexander Zverev (four).
Prediction: Kasper Ruud (Team Europe)
Second match: Stefanos Tsitsipas vs. Diego Schwartzman
Greece’s Stefanos Tsitsipas will then play Argentina’s Diego Schwartzman in what should be another victory for the European team.
The sixth racket of the world, Tsitsipas, beat Shvartsman in the last two meetings and leads in pairs with a score of 3:2. This is not a guaranteed victory for the European team, as Tsitsipas has proven to the tennis world many times that he can easily lose momentum and get lost in his own thoughts.
Schwartzman, who finished in 17th place, plays well on the court and can be on top.
Prediction: Stefanos Tsitsipas (Team Europe)
Match 3: Andy Murray vs. Alex de Minor
At the beginning of the night session, Englishman Andy Murray will meet with Australian Alex de Minor.
This match will most likely be the closest singles match of three as Murray is no longer the best player he once was and de Minaur is still climbing up the rankings. These two have achieved impressive results over the past three months, so a great match is yet to come.
This match is mandatory for Team World.
Prediction: Alex De Minaur (Team World)
Match 4: Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal vs. Jack Sock and Francis Tiafoe
What follows is the highly anticipated matchup of tennis legends Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal against Jack Sock and Francis Tiafoe.
While the tennis world will root for the two tennis legends, it will definitely be hard for them to win.
In truth, Nadal and Federer are not regular doubles players, and while the support of the fans will be on their side, it may not be enough to beat the Americans.
Sock holds the record for most Laver Cup doubles wins with seven, while Tiafoe plays confidently. after his amazing performance at the 2022 US Open.
Prediction: Jack Sock vs Francis Tiafoe (Team World)
