The 3 were sitting together in a row and Dirk Nowitzki posted a picture of them on his social media handle. What amused the fans most was the caption that the NBA legend wrote. Dirk described the picture as sitting with one of his sports heroes, by which he meant Roger Federer, while completely ignoring fellow Basketball player, Steve Nash, who was sitting on the extreme right in the picture.

Roger Federer will attend all 3 days of the Laver Cup, this time only as a spectator who is supporting Team Europe. He also gave some advice to the newcomers on how to play together as a team. Team Europe will look to stop Team World from defending their title this year.

Roger Federer retired from the sport last year this time after the completion of the Laver Cup 2022. He also led Team Europe to victory in 2017, 2018, and 2019. Many big names have attended the Laver Cup including the likes of Dirk Nowitzki, Steve Nash, Roger, and a few of the Coldplay band members as well.
