John McEnroe, captain of Team World for the inaugural Laver Cup next month, announced Wednesday Denis Shapovalov as one of his two captain’s picks along with Juan Martin Del Potro.

At 18 years of age, Shapovalov will be the youngest player in the event and he will join fellow Canadian Milos Raonic on Team World as well as Del Potro, John Isner, Sam Querrey, and Jack Sock. They will go up against a Team Europe led by Bjorn Borg that will feature Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Tomas Berdych, Marin Cilic, Dominic Thiem, and Rogers Cup champion Alexander Zverev.

The Laver Cup will be held from September 22-24 in Prague, Czech Republic.
