Major tennis tournaments will return to London’s O2 Arena after Roger Federer confirmed that his brainchild – The Laver Cup – would take place their from 2022 onwards.

The Laver Cup pits a European team against a rest of the world outfit in a three-day, Ryder Cup-style tournament.

It has previously sold out venues in Prague, Chicago and Geneva and was set to be hosted in Boston this September, however that has since been cancelled and postponed to next year.

Federer, who has won two of his six ATP Finals titles at the O2, said: “London has always held a special place in my heart and it’s going to be incredible to bring the Laver Cup to one of my favourite cities in the world.

“I know the British fans will love the way the Laver Cup brings together the top players in the world while paying respect and recognition to the legends of our game.”
