Rafael Nadal will play the Roger Federer concept tournament, the Laver Cup which was floated by some as a farewell for the great Spaniard. Albeit he is signed up for further tournaments so that is unlikely, but this is based off the Swiss legend bowing out at the tournament two years ago.
But could he do the unthinkable and come out of retirement to give Rafael Nadal a send off. Slightly unlikely given that Federer has shown no desire to return to tennis and most of the spots for Team Europe are full. But given it is Federer's tournament, never say never and Andy Roddick is one of those who is theorising that it could happen and is manifesting it.
“This is pure bulls**t fandom speculation that we are having right now,” said Roddick on his Served podcast.
“I wouldn’t bet on it, also it wouldn’t be the most shocking thing I have ever seen in the history of the world. I don’t think it will happen, but you don’t know. Laver Cup wins by Nadal saying he’s going to play it. It’s kind of created. If he does it and this is the last place he plays and he plays doubles, they’re kind of creating this place where we can basically curate your goodbye. Like we’ll let you know we’ll make the entire weekend and honour our Champion.”
