The organizers of the Laver Cup have announced a charitable collaboration with The Duchess of Cambridge. The funds raised from the efforts will go towards Action for Children and the LTA Tennis Foundation.

 As part of the initiative, all proceeds from tickets to Laver Cup Open Practice Day, which will take place on Thursday September 22 at The O2 in London, will be split between the two charities.

Before that, there will also be a day of tennis in East London to help children supported by Action for Children and youngsters from the local area who are part of the LTA SERVES programme.

The day of tennis in East London is aimed at children between the ages of 8 to 15 and will be attended by The Duchess and Roger Federer, who is a co-founder of the tournament.

Federer is expected to make his long-awaited return to tennis at the Laver Cup next month as he joins Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, Stefanos Tsitsipas and Casper Ruud in Team Europe as they take on Team World, which includes Felix Auger-Aliassime, Jack Sock, Diego Schwartzman and Taylor Fritz (with two more players yet to be announced).

This is the fifth edition of the Laver Cup, with Team Europe winning all four previous editions.
