Roger Federer shows interest in being Team Europe's captain in Laver Cup

Roger Federer said he enjoys being a part of the tennis community after his retirement last year and expressed an interest in captaining Team Europe at the Laver Cup, though the team has no immediate plans to replace Bjorn Borg.

Federer, who helped Team Europe claim three Laver Cup titles by beating Team World, will be present at this year's edition in Vancouver, where a celebration is planned on Friday to mark the first anniversary of his final competitive match.

Federer, 42, had played alongside his rival Rafal Nadal in that clash, losing to Jack Sock and Frances Tiafoe as Team World went on to capture the title.

"There's something in me that's Team Europe," Federer said. "I'm happy if World wins, don't get me wrong, but somehow I can feel it deep inside, I want Europe to win. I like being in the tennis sphere. Maybe one day I'll be the captain of the team.

"There's no plans as of now, but I think that could be quite nice."
