Team Europe Takes Early Lead Over Team World at Inaugural Laver Cup

German tennis player Alexander Zverev Swiss tennis player Roger Federer and Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal greet the audience from the stage ahead of the tennis Laver Cup

The match tiebreak saw the teams trade mini-breaks early and often, but some huge winners from Kyrgios and Sock set the tone for the rest of the breaker.

'What? I'm about to lose my s**t if you call that a let, ' the 22-year-old was heard to say by TV cameras. It changed the entire mindset. But if Saturday wasn't special then how come we were all watching? "Happy to go to back to bed with 3-1 and tomorrow is another day". That means first to ten points leading by two.

His next test, though, will be the highly-anticipated doubles pairing with Nadal-a first in the history of two men who have contested the biggest titles in tennis through 37 singles meetings. You may dismiss that as wishful thinking, but it could materialise into reality when the Laver Cup starts on Friday.

He said he was looking forward to the different nature of the Laver Cup.

They have played for posterity: facing each other 37 times in official matches during the last 13 years, including three times in 2017, their surprising season of mutual renaissance.

The matches will be broadcast live on DSport.

Federer and Nadal will most likely play together in earnest for the first time this weekend.

Federer got things rolling well for Team Europe by making quick work of Querrey. "The amount of spin he was able to bring to the game or the physicality and his movement on clay". "With Davis Cup they need to make some changes", McEnroe said.

If a rubber is tied 1-1, a 10-point super tie-break is played instead of the third set. Whilst once it was accorded almost equal status to the four Majors, that is certainly no longer the case.

Curry said Friday a decision to not visit the White House would only be a first step.

Roger Federer partnering Rafael Nadal? Nevertheless, a year later, he had his arms wrapped around the coveted Wimbledon trophy putting an end to all speculations. But in all honesty, it was a treat to watch two of the greatest tennis players join forces and crush the opposition.

Should anyone doubt the commitment of these players to the tournament and the title, their respective reactions spoke volumes. "Maybe I would have won one". However, the Laver Cup remains at this stage in many ways an exhibition event.

Fedal' - the word used to define their epic rivalry.

He then fought back from 4-0 down in the match tie-break, the Austrian securing a 6-7 (15-17) 7-6 (7-2) 10-7 victory.

Tennis does not lack for tournaments. A European roster at full strength is a frightening proposition. "Between saying and doing it, there is a lot of difference".

Whatever the outcome of those matches, the overall contest will still be alive going into Sunday as three points for each win on the final day will be up for grabs.

Whether the Laver Cup captures fans' hearts or fades like Andre Agassi's jorts we shall wait and see.

His elbow will benefit and so will his mind.
