The new Laver Cup team tennis tournament is supposed to be a "tough" contest, not an exhibition, according to Roger Federer.The competition will pit a team of the best six European players against the top six from the rest of the world. Bjorn Bjorg will captain Europe while John McEnroe will do the same for the opponents. The tournament is to honor Rod Laver, an 11-time major champion who won two calendar-year Grand Slams.What is for certain, organizers said, is that Federer and Rafael Nadal, the finalists at this year's Australian Open, will be on the European team.
