John McEnroe and Bjorn Borg will return as Laver Cup captains this 12 months, when the team event moves to Canada for the primary time.
McEnroe will lead Team World against Borg’s Team Europe at Rogers Arena in Vancouver from Sept. 22-24.
The one player named to either six-man roster thus far is Felix Auger-Aliassime, a 22-year-old from Montreal who’s currently No. 9 within the ATP rankings. His best Grand Slam result was reaching the semifinals on the 2021 U.S. Open.
Auger-Aliassime helped begin the comeback on Day 3 of the Laver Cup in London last September — marked by Roger Federer’s final match, a doubles loss alongside longtime rival Rafael Nadal — when Team World finally beat Team Europe after losing each of the initial 4 editions of the event.

Auger-Aliassime paired with Jack Sock to win a doubles match, then beat Novak Djokovic in singles, before Frances Tiafoe’s victory over Stefanos Tsitsipas clinched the final result.
“Felix was our MVP last 12 months. He really turned the tide for us, big time,” McEnroe said in a video press conference on Thursday. “It’s a no brainer to have Felix on the team. I believe he’ll win a significant in the subsequent 12 months — 18 months at essentially the most.”
Ticket packages for the Laver Cup, which was founded by Federer’s management company, go on sale March 3.
