Second Serve

Holger Rune is joining Team Europe.

The seventh-ranked Dane, one of the fastest rising young players on the ATP Tour, will join Stefanos Tsitsipas and Andrey Rublev on Team Europe as it seeks to avenge last year’s loss to Team World at the Laver Cup.

Team Europe won the first four editions of the international team competition.

“I’m so honored to be part of Team Europe in Vancouver this year,” said Rune. “I’ve watched Laver Cup over the past few years and love the event. The competition is so intense and getting to really know the personalities of your rivals so unique. It has been a goal of mine to make the team and I can’t wait to be a part of it.”

Felix Auger-Aliassime, Taylor Fritz, Frances Tiafoe and Nick Kyrgios have so far been named for Team World.

The top three-ranked players for each team earn a guaranteed invitation based on their ATP singles ranking on the Monday after Wimbledon (July 17, 2023). If a top three-ranked player chooses not to participate, the offer will be made to another high-ranked player. The remaining three will be Captains’ picks and named any time before the start of the US Open. With the naming of Tsitsipas, Rublev and Rune before the qualification deadline, Borg is committing to use one or more of his Captain’s picks if needed to guarantee their participation.

Single-session tickets to the Laver Cup go on sale on Friday, April 28 at 10:00AM PDT via Ticketmaster. Single-session tickets will be available for each of the five sessions, starting at CAD$35 for Friday’s day session and CAD$50 for all other sessions (excluding tax & fees).
