Europe boast both Federer and Rafael Nadal in their team this year, with the action set to get underway on Friday.

"They're really good at doubles - Jack is one of the world's best doubles players, if not the absolute best right now - and we know how hard it's going to be".

At the Laver Cup, he has successfully defeated Roger Federer/Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer/Alexander Zverev in 2018, to help Team World get their first lead over Team Europe.

They will be followed on court by doubles expert Jack Sock against Europe's Fabio Fognini, the champion in Monte Carlo.

"The way we've come together as a group, our chemistry is much better than Team Europe's and I think that gives us a good shot in every year", Kyrgios said.

The World will have high-powered servers John Isner, Nick Kyrgios, Milos Raonic, Taylor Fritz plus Denis Shapovalov and doubles man Jack Sock.

"It is not only about Grand Slams, of course Grand Slams are important but I don't think of it that way. So definitely feel some pressure, but it's good pressure", he said. "I already discussed it with my team and I asked how they see it".

"We have incredible depth", Federer said. "Hopefully we'll get off to a little bit better start than we did the first couple of years and the first few days we will be in a better position". One point will be awarded for each match won on day one, two points for each match won on day two and three each on Sunday.

Team Europe: Rafael Nadal (world No.2), Roger Federer (3), Dominic Thiem (5), Alexander Zverev (6), Stefanos Tsitsipas (7), Fabio Fognini (11).

"I just like it to be in the place that is super excited about hosting the Laver Cup like Prague, Chicago and now also Geneva has shown, that would be the same in China if it ever goes there".

His win-loss record at the Laver Cup over the years has been impeccable with him losing only one match of the six doubles matches he has played. The first team to reach 13 points will be declared victor.
