Q. What is the Laver Cup?
The Laver Cup is an international indoor hard court men's tennis tournament between two teams: Team Europe and Team World, the latter of which is composed of players from non-European countries. The host city in 2020 will be Boston, USA.
Q. How are the teams selected?
Each team will be comprised of six players, and led by a team captain, who is a legend of the sport. The captain of Europe is Bjorn Borg, and the captain of Team World is John McEnroe. Four of the six players will qualify based on their ATP singles ranking as of the Monday following Wimbledon. Two are “captain’s picks” that will be announced by the Monday after the US Open.
Q. What is the Laver Cup Format?
The event will be played over three days. On Friday and Saturday, there will be a day and night session followed by a final single day session on Sunday.
Each day four matches are played – three singles and a doubles.
Both singles and doubles will be best of three sets with ad scoring. In the event of split sets, the third set will be a 10-point match tiebreaker.
Each player will play at least one singles match during the two days.
No player will play singles more than twice during the three days.
At least four of the six players must play doubles. No doubles combination can be played more than once, unless for the Decider on Day 3, if points are 12:12.
The winning team must reach 13 points.
In the event of a tie after all 12 matches are played, a final overtime doubles match – a Decider – will be played as a regular set with ad scoring and a tie break.
Matchups will be determined prior to the first match each day through the exchange of lineup cards by the captains.
Q. How does the scoring work?
Each match win will be worth one point on Friday, two points on Saturday, and three points on Sunday.
How do you win the Laver Cup?
The first team to reach 13 points out of a total 24 points available will win the Laver Cup. If the points are tied at 12:12 at the end of all matches, a fifth match (Decider) on Sunday will be played to determine the winner.
Q. What is the location?
The city of Boston will host the fourth edition of the Laver Cup from September 25-27, 2020, at the TD Garden in Boston.
The location will rotate between Europe and the rest of the world cities each year. It will take place every year, two weeks following the US Open, except in Summer Olympic years.
Q. I want to see Roger Federer (or my favorite player). When is he playing?
The order of play for each day of the Laver Cup will be determined through the exchange of line-up cards by the captain the evening prior, and then posted on the official site.
Q. What is the court surface?
The event will be always played on one competition hard court in a retractable roof stadium or indoor arena.
Q. Can other people use my multi-session tickets?
A multi-session ticket provides the buyer with five individual tickets (one per session). Tickets may be distributed amongst family and friends.
Q. When will players be announced and how are the teams/players selected?
Each team will be comprised of six players and led by a team captain who is a legend of the sport. The captain for Team Europe is Bjorn Borg and the captain for Team World is John McEnroe.

The remaining two players are “captain’s picks” that will be announced no later than the Monday after the US Open. Players who have committed to play may be announced early.
Q. What is a multi-session ticket?
A multi-session ticket will give the holder access to all five sessions at the Laver Cup: Friday, September 25th (day and night sessions), Saturday, September 26th (day and night sessions) and Sunday, September 27th (day session), and will ensure the same seat for all five sessions.
Q. When will my tickets be delivered?
Tickets are generally delivered one week before your first day of attendance. Actual delivery times vary from event to event depending on many factors including when tickets are physically allocated by the tournament.
Q. What if my tickets are lost or stolen?
When you receive your tickets, keep them in a safe place. Unfortunately, tickets cannot be replaced if they are lost, stolen, or damaged. Please note that direct sunlight or heat can damage some tickets.
Q. Will the tickets I order be together?
Yes. All ticket order of two tickets will be together. For orders of 3 or more tickets we do our best to get all the tickets together, but it’s not guaranteed. We will make sure to have at least all the tickets as pairs.
Q. When tickets are listed as a “General” ticket for a particular level, what does that mean?
When a ticket is listed as a “General” ticket, such as “Upper Level- General” this simply means that your tickets are guaranteed to be located in a section within the Upper level. Even though it’s listed as “General”, all tickets are reserved. You will only know the actual seats (section, row, and seat number) once the tickets are delivered.
