CHICAGO — An international men's tennis competition will come to Chicago next year.

The second Laver Cup will take place September 2018 at the United Center in Chicago. Players from Team Europe will face off against Team World "to battle for national pride," according to a city news release.

“The Laver Cup will draw tennis fans from throughout the world to Chicago for a competition like no other,” Mayor Emanuel said. “But this competition will do more than bring world-class tennis back to Chicago — it will inspire the next generation of tennis champions in neighborhoods across the city and beyond.”

Chicago's hasn't hosted a major tennis competition in more than 20 years, according to the city.

The first Laver Cup finished Sunday in Prague.
