The city of Chicago will host the second edition of the Laver Cup next year, at the world famous United Center from September 21-23, 2018.
Chicago has a long and proud sporting history and is home to the Bears, Blackhawks, Bulls, White Sox and Cubs. One of the last matches to be played in the city was a final between John and Patrick McEnroe, the current captain and vice-captain of Team World.
The structure is like to The Ryder Cup – the most exciting event in golf! Four of the six tennis players will qualify based on their ATP singles ranking as of the Monday following Wimbledon. Two are “captain’s picks” announced on the Monday after the US Open. Every day four matches will be played- three singles and one doubles. If the competition is tied after all twelve matches, a tiebreaking doubles match will determine the winner. Each match win will be worth one point on Friday, two points on Saturday, and three points on Sunday. The team with the highest amount of points will win the Laver Cup.
