Federer set to be at Laver Cup but not playing, pays tribute to Borg and McEnroe: "Laver Cup couldn't have chosen better"

Roger Federer will be in Vancouver later this year for the 2023 Laver Cup but he won't be playing as he retired at last year's Laver Cup.

The 2022 Laver Cup was an odd one in many ways. For starters, it hosted the final match of Roger Federer's career. It still sounds odd to type it out because the images we'll remember of Federer are those on the court. He won't be on the court at this year's edition but he will be there, as well as captain Borg and McEnroe. It was also the first time Team World one and team Europe had the big four there.

With the announcement of Borg and McEnroe as captain came a statement from Federer who confirmed he'll be in Vancouver while paying tribute to the captains:

"Bjorn and John are fantastic for the Laver Cup. They are great team leaders, mentors and ambassadors for the event. They fight hard but with tremendous respect for the sport we all love. Laver Cup couldn't have chosen better. I'm really looking forward to being in Vancouver in September to see their teams compete once again."
