HOW LAVER CUP WORKS
The Laver Cup pits six top European players against six of their counterparts from the rest of the World.

LAVER CUP FORMAT

The event is played over three days. On Friday and Saturday, there is a day and night session followed by a final single day session on Sunday.

Each day four matches are played – three singles and a doubles.

Both singles and doubles are best of three sets with ad scoring. In the event of split sets, the third set is a 10-point match tiebreaker.

Each player competes in at least one singles match during the first two days.

No player can play singles more than twice during the three days.

At least four of the six players must play doubles. No doubles combination is played more than once, unless for the Decider on Day 3, if points are 12:12.

The winning team must reach 13 points.

In the event of a tie after all 12 matches are played, a final overtime doubles match – a Decider – is played as a regular set with ad scoring and a tiebreak.

Friday’s lineup is announced on Thursday afternoon.
Saturday’s lineup is announced an hour after play ends on Friday night.
Sunday’s lineup is announced an hour after play ends on Saturday night.
Match-ups are determined through the exchange of lineup cards by the captains.

LAVER CUP SCORING

Points scoring

Each match win is worth one point on Friday, two points on Saturday, and three points on Sunday.

How to win the Laver Cup
The first team to reach 13 points out of a total 24 points available wins the Laver Cup. If the points are tied at 12:12 at the end of all matches, a fifth match (Decider) on Sunday is played to determine the winner.

COURT SURFACE

The event is always played on one competition hard court in a retractable roof stadium or indoor arena.

TEAM CAPTAINS
Each team is captained by a legend of the sport. Björn Borg is the captain of Team Europe and John McEnroe is the captain of Team World.

Captain’s Role
The captains are responsible for selecting the three captain’s picks as well as the players for singles and doubles matches.

Not sure if this has been mentioned elsewhere, but it appears the Laver Cup Twitter account is blocking anyone who comments in their mentions about the Zverev situation.

I don't know if it was mentioned here either but Tennis Twitter has been reporting on it.

Honestly I didn't know what to do with this event. In my mind it's an exhibition.

The funny part is everyone can still see the comments if they are blocked (except for the original poster of the comment), so doesn't seem to be doing any good, damage-controlwise

Since ATP does count these matches towards head-to-heads, I'm also including them in my database (along with Davis Cup). They will not bring points and will not influence points-related categories of weighted ranking. But they affect non-points related categories (like win percentages, etc.)
