◼️ Alexander Zverev decreed the 13-8 in Chicago and those of the Old Continent – led by Federer and Djokovic – lifted the trophy after defeating the world team.

The team representing Europe won the second edition of the Laver Cup, a competition in the form of an exhibition disputed by teams, which confronts those of the aforementioned continent against the rest of the world (commanded by John McEnroe), and which has elite tennis players.

The team led by Björn Borg was at a disadvantage on the scoreboard (7-8), but it came back in Sunday’s games that gave more points (3 each game) than the previous two days. In that line, Roger Federer prevailed in a close match against John Isner by 6-7 (5-7), 7-6 (8-6) and 10-7 overall, while the German Alexander Zverev signed the 13-8 by beating South African Kevin Anderson 6-7 (3-7), 7-5 and 10-7.



This way, it wasn’t necessary for Novak Djokovic and Nick Kyrgios to dispute the decisive encounter. The team consisting of Federer, Djokovic, and Zverev was completed by David Goffin, Grigor Dimitrov, and Kyle Edmund. The tournament was played in Chicago this year.

After the triumph at the opening of the tournament in 2017, in Prague, the Europeans won again and next year they will try to repeat in Geneva, Switzerland.
