Speaking after his announcement, the Serb said: "It’s the only competition where you can play in a team environment with guys that you’re normally competing against.
"To be joining Rafa, Roger and Andy – three of my biggest all-time rivals – it’s going to be a truly unique moment in the history of our sport."
Former world number one Borg stated: "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."
