If the Swiss legend pairs up with Nadal, it will be the second time in the history of the Laver Cup that both the players would be pairing up in the doubles. The only time they featured in the doubles before was during the inaugural edition of the Laver Cup at Prague in 2017, sending fans around the world in frenzy, they faced American duo Sam Querrey and Jack Sock and won the iconic contest 6-4, 1-6, 10-5.

The pair could not play together again so far in the Laver Cup. Speaking about Nadal, Federer said, “We always got along really well. For us as well to go through a career that we both have had and to come out on the other side and being able to have a nice relationship, I think is maybe a great message as well, to not just tennis but sports and maybe even beyond. For that reason I think it would be great.”

The Laver Cup is scheduled to begin on Friday, 23rd September and will end on 25th September, Sunday. The matches will be played between Team Europe and Team World at the O2 Arena in London.
