Roger Federer and his agent hold 'positive' Laver Cup talks with Carlos Alcaraz

Now he and his agent Tony Godsick are now keen to sign the teenager up for the team event. The tournament organisers are desperate for men’s tennis’ brightest young star to join Federer and Rafael Nadal on Team Europe this year, and he seems keen to take part.

“Captain Borg would love to have him on the team, as would we,” the Laver Cup’s chairman Tony Godsick told the i paper. “I know some discussions have taken place. The indication I’ve heard from the team is that he’s excited about learning more. I’m optimistic that he’s going to play.

“He would be an incredible asset, not only this year, but in the future. So we’re really excited about making sure that he’s on Team Europe.” The Laver Cup is a team tournament created by the Swiss ace and his TEAM8 management company. Since its inception in 2017, Team Europe have yet to lose to Team World and Alcaraz donning the blue and white at the O2 Arena this September will further increase their chances of retaining the trophy.
