The Laver Cup also dominated the European selection for the fourth time. He won an overwhelming 14-1 in Boston

Europeans dominated even without the star trio Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer, who are injured or apologize for fatigue. However, the complete European six in Boston is in the top ten of the world rankings and after Friday it was heading to defend the trophy.

On Saturday, the European tennis players won all four duels, and today the first match was transformed by the Olympic winner Alexander Zverev with Andrei Rublyov.

“I thought I was one of the worst deblists, I could only play forehands. But it seems that I can also play doubles well,” Rublyov rejoiced.

“It was all amazing. It was an honor and a pleasure to be with these boys and with Björn (Borg) and Thomas (Enqvist) in the back,” he mentioned the captain and his assistant.

The creation of the Laver Cup was initiated by Roger Federer as a tribute to the legendary Australian Rod Laver, the only two-time Grandslam holder. Europe also won previous years in Prague 2017, Chicago 2018 and Geneva 2019. It was not played last year due to the coronavirus break.
