Laver Cup

How cool is this tournament?

The 2 greatest tennis players of all time, Federer and Nadal on the same team with their coach Bjorn Borg.


Federer coaching Zverev.

Some of the matches have been okay, but the teams are massively unbalanced

Ended up being a good tournament that was decided by the third set tiebreak between Fed and Kyrgios

Europe wins

I didn't get a chance to watch - were they 3 or 5 set matches?

3rd set tiebreak suggests 3 Wink

Unless, of course, it was a tiebreak in the third set of a sweep (7-6).

A tiebreak in that instance would only determine the match in that circumstance though.

Nevermind. It wasn't a win by 2 3rd set. They played just played a straight tiebreaker in the 3rd set. There really was no "set". 11-9 was the score of the 3rd "set" but 11-9 was points won as well.

Yeah the third set was just a tiebreaker to 10. I think that was a good compromise, considering the players weren't getting official ATP points for playing.

It's too bad some of the better "World" players couldn't play, most notably Nishikori, Raonic, and Del Potro. But to be fair, Europe was missing some really elite players like Djokovic, Murray, and Wawrinka.
