Laver Cup 2022 Live UpdatesTennis legend Roger Federer is set to play his final professional match when he and longtime rival Rafael Nadal take on Jacques Sock and Frances Tiafo in a doubles match at the Laver Cup. Federer announced last week that the Laver Cup would be his last professional tournament. The 20-time Grand Slam champion, plagued by a knee injury, has not played since the 2021 Wimbledon quarter-finals and announced his retirement last week at the age of 41. The Swiss great has enjoyed a storied rivalry with the Spaniard over nearly two decades and together they have won 42 Grand Slam singles titles in a golden era for the men’s sport. The pair played 40 times, including nine Grand Slam finals, with Nadal winning a record 24–16, but this time they would be on the same side of the net in a Ryder Cup-style event. The six-strong Team Europe also featured Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray – the other two members of the so-called “Big Four” – in a fitting climax for Federer’s career.
