Medvedev will be joined by World No.3 Stefanos Tsitsipas, Tokyo Olympics gold medalist Alexander Zverev, Andrey Rublev and Casper Ruud. In light of Roger Federer and Dominic Thiem's withdrawals, Wimbledon finalist Matteo Berrettini will be joining the team.
“I’m really disappointed to be missing this year’s Laver Cup,” Federer said. “Team Europe has an incredible line-up though and I wish them all the very best as they go for their fourth Laver Cup win.”
Team Europe's line-up features six of the world's top 11 players, with Team Europe having won all three previous editions of the Laver Cup.
