Dominic Thiem joins Roger Federer as first members of Team Europe for Laver Cup 2021

Team Europe have added US Open champion Dominic Thiem to their roster for the Laver Cup in Boston next year. 

Europe already have Roger Federer confirmed for the event, which was supposed to take place this year before it fell victim to the coronavirus crisis.

“The Laver Cup is a fantastic event and I’m really excited to be a part of Team Europe for the Boston edition,” Thiem said.

“I’ve been lucky enough to be on the winning side at two of the three Laver Cups so far – in Prague and Geneva, and it’s a really unique event, like no other on the tour.

“I’m really looking forward to helping Team Europe capture a fourth title.

“It’s so cool to be competing as part of a team with guys I’m normally facing across the net.

“We have so much fun together, but I also still learn a lot from the likes of Roger and Bjorn who have so much experience in the game.”

Team Europe captain Bjorn Borg was understandably happy to add Thiem to his ranks.

“Dom has had an incredible season, despite the unprecedented circumstances,” Borg said.

“He consistently performs at the top level and it was great to see him win his first Slam earlier in the year in New York.

“With him and Roger confirmed I feel we’ve got a great foundation, but for sure we’ll need to be in top form as each year Team World get tougher and tougher and my great friend and rival John McEnroe will be hungrier than ever to win in front of a home crowd!”
