Jack Sock and Frances Tiafoe relish their role as pantomime villains in Friday night’s ‘beyond the iconic’ doubles showdown with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

Federer, winner of 20 Grand Slam titles, joins his oldest Laver Cup rival Nadal in what will be the Swiss great’s last game of an illustrious 24-year career.

But Sock, now more of a doubles specialist, and Tiafoe represent a serious challenge for the exhilarated duo of Team Europe.

Team World, led by John McEnroe, is still looking for its first victory at the fifth edition of the event, and Sock said: “I think we have a great chance.

“Obviously tomorrow night will be a more than iconic evening doubles match. I’m just thrilled to be part of it with my guy Foe next to me.

“We will go out and enjoy the moment, but we will not hold anything back. Sorry Roger. I don’t want to spoil the night.

I’m just excited to play against two newcomers tomorrow! Should be good.

Frances Tiafoe

Fellow American Tiafoe arrived at 02 London following their run to the US Open semi-finals.

He said: “I’m just thrilled to face two promising players tomorrow! Should be good.

“No, it’s going to be iconic to be a part of it. Both guys are absolute legends, and obviously this is Roger’s last dance.

“Again, like Jack said, we’re definitely trying to get a win.”
