Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer did not even play the US Open nor will they play the remainder of the 2021 season. Within the schedule, the Laver Cup exhibition tournament did not see them in action either.
The manacorí uploaded to Instagram Stories the video with the announcement of the Laver Cup 2022 (to be played in London) and the comment: “@rogerfederer doubles next year?”
Nadal and Federer played doubles together in the first edition of Laver, in 2017, against Sam Querrey and Jack Sock. The victory went to Fedal 6-4, 1-6 and 10-5.
Federer (40 years old) and Nadal (35 years old) played 40 games with each other with 24 wins for the Manacorí and 16 for the Swiss. They have 20 Grand Slam titles each, sharing the record alongside Novak Djokovic.
