Team Europe have been the defending champions, having lifted the trophy four times in a row - Prague 2017, Chicago 2018, Geneva 2019 and Boston 2021.

Team Europe captain Bjorn Borg added, “I don’t think I could have imagined having these four icons of the sport on one team together. I know they, like I, appreciate the significance of this moment and will be truly up for it. Each year our goal is to win. With Rafa, Roger, Andy and Novak on the team, I like our chances.”
