Tiafoe and Fritz Commit to 2023 Laver Cup in Vancouver

By Chris Oddo | @TheFanChild | Monday April 17, 2023

Top-ranked Americans Taylor Fritz and Frances Tiafoe will as soon as once more characterize Team World as they bid to defend their Laver Cup title later this 12 months when the occasion involves Rogers Arena in Vancouver from September 22-24.

The American duo will be a part of Canadian No.1 Felix Auger-Aliassime as the primary participant to be named in Captain John McEnroe’s six-man Team World.

Fritz, Tiafoe and Auger-Aliassime all performed a task in final 12 months’s historic Laver Cup at The O2 in London, which marked the tip of Roger Federer’s legendary profession.

It was Team World’s first victory in 5 editions of the Laver Cup.

“It’s like getting the band back together,” stated Coach McEnroe. “Taylor, Frances and Felix have all played Laver Cup multiple times and were big factors in our victory last year. I know I can count on these guys to step up. I really like our chances with them on the team in Vancouver.”

Vancouver would be the third Laver Cup call-up for World No.10 Fritz.

“Laver Cup is such a unique event and I’m really excited to be back for Team World this year,” stated Fritz. “We had an awesome time in London last year, the team had great energy, and finally getting that win has given us a lot of confidence. But, Frances, Felix and I know from experience how quickly momentum can shift in Laver Cup so we will need to be at our best.”

Tiafoe will likely be making his fourth look.

“There’s no doubt that last year’s Laver Cup win was right up there as a career high for me,” stated Tiafoe. “It was an unbelievable feeling to finally lift that trophy after coming so close in the past, and I can’t wait to give it another shot this year.”
