Kick-off for the 2021 edition of the Laver Cup with high-flying matches and Argentine participation from day 1 at the TD Garden in Boston. All live on Star +.
Because Diego Schwartzman will open the night session against Andrey Rublev, a player who he beat in the only duel between the two (back in 2017). But, it is known, the Russian is one of the most consistent in the ATP today and one of the most winners of the year (43-15). “Peque” comes after representing Argentina in the Davis Cup series for Group I against Belarus in Buenos Aires with a win and a loss.
Then he will close an unprecedented double among Europeans Alexander Zverev (Germany) and Matteo Berrettini (Italy) against the “Americans” Denis Shapovalov, from Canada, and John Isner, from the United States.
However, to get to these matches, important points will be played much earlier. Casper Ruud vs. Reilly Opelka. In July, the Norwegian became the first player since 2011 to claim three ATP titles in as many weeks (Bastad, Gstaad and Kitzbuhel) as well as reaching Boston in 10th place, the highest of his career in the world rankings.
While, Felix Auger-Alisassime will measure Matteo Berrettini. The 25-year-old Italian leads the head-to-head 2-1, and has things set to be a Top 10 on a regular basis for years to come. The Canadian, after reaching his first major semifinal at the US Open, is confident at his all-time high.
