Even without the “Big 3” – Team Europe wins the Laver Cup with superiority – sport

by archysport

The Europeans don’t give Team World a chance at the Laver Cup in Boston and clearly win the three-day exhibition tournament.

Even without Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal or Novak Djokovic, Team Europe won the 4th Laver Cup in a row with a 14-1 win over Team World on Sunday.

At the show competition in Boston between Europe and the rest of the world, the Europeans had already been 11-1 in the lead after the games on Saturday. On Sunday, the European selection converted their first of four match balls.

Europe much better positioned

In addition to Olympic champion Alexander Zverev (GER) and US Open winner Daniil Medwedew (RUS), Stefanos Tsitsipas (GRE), Matteo Berrettini (ITA), Andrej Rublew (RUS) and Casper Ruud (NOR) belonged to the Europe team. All six are placed in the top 10.

Team World included Félix Auger-Aliassime and Denis Shapovalov (both CAN), Diego Schwartzman (ARG), John Isner and Reilly Opelka (both USA) and Nick Kyrgios (AUS), who left early. As world number 11, Auger-Aliassime is the highest ranked player on the team.
