Roger Federer will leave it late before deciding whether he can play in this week’s Laver Cup at London’s 02 Arena.

“He will decide at the last minute,” his long-time fitness coach Pierre Paganini told Swiss Blick.
‘He’s trained to have as much information as possible about whether it’s a good idea or not.’
