Laver Cup captain Bjorn Borg hails ‘great addition’ Matteo Berrettini
Bjorn Borg has praised Italian star Matteo Berrettini after he was selected to join Team Europe ahead of the Laver Cup later this year.
The Laver Cup recently announced that Berrettini will represent Team Europe in the fourth instalment of the event at the TD Garden, Boston in September.
Berrettini will play under captain Bjorn Borg, who has led Team Europe to victories in the last three editions of the event.

Borg, a 11-time major winner, expressed his delight at signing up the Italian as he bids for a fourth consecutive victory over Team World.
“Matteo has had an incredible run, not only on the grass courts this summer but really since the start of the year when he helped Italy reach the final of the ATP Cup in Melbourne and then reached the fourth round of the Australian Open and the quarter-finals at Roland Garros,” Borg said.
“He is a great addition to our team and I have no doubt he will relish the unique experience that Laver Cup provides as he teams up alongside his year-round rivals.”
