The original dates were September 25-27 this year.

But the French Open moved its start from May to September 20 a month ago. That means the Grand Slam tournament would have overlapped with the Laver Cup. The exhibition tournament has attracted some of the top players in men’s tennis in the past.

Federer called the announcement of the Laver Cup date change unfortunate and disappointing but also the right thing to do for everyone concerned. Tickets already purchased will be valid in 2021 or can be refunded.
