Murrettini first up for doubles


Miss_Medussa

Djokovic is my hero 😍😍


Wazflame

Novak really avenged the rest of the Big 4 in one day lmao


Slambodog

So the tournament website is now showing that the first match tomorrow will be Doubles, which is what they did last year. The website previously showed four Singles matches


jagaraujo

Only two matches are guaranteed for tomorrow unfortunately.


stoic_trader

Fuck me, was I brainfarting in the wrong thread during the Djoko match in a live thread? Didn't know about this thread.


thcm123

Anybody know when the match ups will be announced for tomorrow?


trele

They are listed now


Extension_Sun_3536

From Laver Cup website: >Sunday’s lineup is announced an hour after play ends on Saturday night. So should be very soon


FNWO1

Anyone else feel like Novak has put some muscle on? Dudes looking ripped


DarkDiablo1601

he has done some martial arts lately


WhereverSheGoes

I’m currently watching the 2021 Australia open final and he was much less muscular then. Medvedev looks super skinny, he’s put on some weight since then too.


Dave_Tribbiani

He looks thinner than before lol Which makes him more leaner so you see less fat and more muscles


tomuelmerson

I'd love to see a tournament exclusively made up of all the top seeds playing doubles. Imagine some of the matches that could come from that.


gusfring05

This Laver cup has been extremely fun


faratto_

Having the best players playing for their lifes is always fun. And not feeling the extra pressure probably helps players to give even more lol


rubbish_bin030121

By the way, the Laver cup without Zverev is indeed a better event


Extension_Sun_3536

Don't worry, Zverev is still there (in the crowd)


ASlashOfScarlet

The birthday balloons in the TW room add an extra level of sadness to the dejected McEnroe brothers scene


Smidget2510

Everyone realising that life is much easier when Djokovic is ON your team


Glittering_Panda3494

How many signatures is Nole doing? I love it! He seems so happy


ac4897

This laver cup really uniting big three fans everywhere


Dave_Tribbiani

lol wait for the next Rafaole match, shit gonna be crazy with the 1 slam difference..


ac4897

True let’s enjoy the peace while it lasts then 😅


DarkSofter

Eh give it till AO 23 if Nole or Rafa get an easy draw


sharkhuh

Well, we are on the same team =)


Wazflame

Nole postman


TokyoAJ

'TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY ALL I WANT IS RF AUTO GRAPH' Signed by Djokovic 😂


hivaidsislethal

TBF looks like he got it, there was already something on it


icecreamwithketchup

Imagine Kygs Novak doubles, that'd be funny as hell


shravslibra20

Kyrgios might finally get that dinner…


Holy_Shamoley

That would be a great duo


DarkSofter

Ull regret what you said when Roger beats u for a record breaking 75th slam in the 2065 wimbledon final Nole


jaguar_loco

If Novak brings Roger back for another match... Nadal gon sue


DarkSofter

Rafa about to desert wifeys birth for a last ride with his side ~~chick~~ man


dunkerpup

What was that woman doing touching Novak's collar?


xManaf

She wanted to have a selfie with him


dunkerpup

Pretty inappropriate way of doing that, glad the security guard stepped in, and nice to see she apologised too


Slayy35

Was she the one who he avoided and never gave the selfie too after that? Lmao


dunkerpup

Yes!!


OhHowtheturntables_

Novak is THE MANNNN


TotoDeca

Don't give us hope, Novak!


faratto_

Wow


Gsicht

Let him hear it! 😭😭😭


CaptainMcSpiff

Novak could rhyme off names from a phone book and make it sound like the most eloquent thing.


PoliticalShrapnel

That shout out to Roger for a return was awesome, nice one Nole!


iconisanimi

Now this is a bromance I can get behind ❤️


WilderWildeWelles

Yes Novak use peer pressure for the greater good


shreychopra

Novak doing double time with tennis and the PR


ASlashOfScarlet

Novak stirring that pot 😂 Do it, Roger!


DarkSofter

I absolutely hate questions like the one Nole got about Rod Laver. What the hell are you supposed to answer, except the obvious which he just did?


HTMListerine

"Would Rocket Rod even have been considered good if he'd been born in this era? I cannot speak to this"


truth_iness

Well that's kinda the point - to honor the man


DarkSofter

No need to repeat the same crap question every time. Nole has already played Laver Cup, its not his first year or match in it


dannylenwinn

Djokovic says nice words about Mr. Laver. Thanks again he says. He says 'There's always a hope that Roger comes back' Asks the crowd, you want him back? Let him know how much you want him back ! The crowd roars about it


TokyoAJ

Djokovic flexing his tennis skills just as much as his speech skills tonight


dannylenwinn

Matteo: Novak speaks better Italian than me. Hopefully he doesn't understand my swearing, he says, jokes Today was easier, with him (Novak) on my side, ya know


iconisanimi

Nole getting on his tippytoes to hug Matteo 😂❤️


thcm123

Do the captains assemble the doubles team? Or volunteers basis lol


shandoleezarice

Djokottini needs to happen more, that was a fun match!


icecreamwithketchup

Djokottini winning doubles Wimbledon next year


rubbish_bin030121

apparently Djokovic doesn't want to play the second single match tmr(I guess Borg will put him in 3rd single), if they will 2 of the 3 before then he doesn't need to play


yaki_of_soba

Yeah probably Ruud and Tsitsipas first, then Djokovic


PoliticalShrapnel

Damn it as a straight man I must admit Berrettini is one sexy, sexy man.


barboraistokova

as a lesbian i must agree


daveywarnersbandage

Hold up… didn’t Katie Boulder previously date Sock, and is now dating ADM? No wonder this doubles partnership was awful 😂


Kahn-wald

Sock dated the whole WTA ? Straight female tennis players have awful taste for men.


Extension_Sun_3536

Boulter dated Sock? Never knew that. Could indeed be awkward, but doesn't have to be. I just think the doubles team was awkward because De Minaur is a bad doubles player


daveywarnersbandage

I can’t find an ‘official’ photograph of them together, but they appeared in each other’s Instagram stories a fair bit a few years ago, and there were discussions on other tennis forums about them possibly dating. But yeah, De Minaur was outright shocking today.


White_Nothing

That buffet they have in the back is bomb. I'd be back there all day lol.


iokara

Anyone catch what Novak said to Sock at the net?


slayer_of_potatoes

"You think you can just beat Roger in his last match and get away with it?"


dunkerpup

Fedal send their regards


KillAMan99

Djokettini to take over the doubles world!!


hotcolddog

Can’t think of a more MVP performance than Djokovic tonight. It’s on par with his 2010 Davis Cup or 2019 ATP Cup performances with Serbia. Unreal


foodkidmaadcity

*2020 ATP Cup! .. good times 😭


hotcolddog

Ah yes, 2020. Before 2020 became “2020” 😭


mihaela_cld

Novak be like let's finish fast, I have some physiotherapy to do


AntonMaevski

lol Roger took Novak's stuff


TotoDeca

Matteo and Nole should play doubles together more often, they seem to have such a good chemistry


sharkhuh

Any guesses on what tomorrow's matches might be?


MillenialWhoKnits

Novak-Andy vs Diego-FAA


Extension_Sun_3536

For doubles I'd pick Djokovic & Murray vs. Sock and Fritz. For singles I'd say Djokovic, Ruud and Tsitsipas for Europe, and then Fritz, Tiafoe and FAA for World? Those would be my picks I'm just hoping for a Djokovic Murray doubles pairing, as I'd like to see another Big 4 doubles duo.


dannylenwinn

Federer happy thus far


preorderdenied

Fedal avenged!


shravslibra20

I didn’t have much hopes from Novak, thought he would be rusty like usual after a break but I’m so pleasantly surprised with his level - even playing doubles well 😅


Ramiah73

Roger bringing Novak water bottles and carrying his bag. This tourney just keeps on giving :')


Harveymilk313

Djoker was a killer tonight. Picked up right where he left off.


truth_iness

Not too bad for two singles players who never played together


SmoothLettuce

Obviously Djokovic was amazing today but what a good day for Matteo too


truth_iness

Yes won both singles and doubles. Amazing


tigrefacile

He is dancing, he is dancing. He says that he will never die.


sweetgrapez

If the fix was in, demon would’ve played dubs yesterday 💀


BenjaminBobba

Matteo and Novak saving the day today


daveywarnersbandage

Anytime I’ve watched Djokovic in doubles before, he’s been a disaster. I guess all he needed was De Minaur on the other side of the net.


sixthestate

These players are having stronger emotional reactions to match events than they do at Grand Slams.


dannylenwinn

Good match boys. GGz Team Djokotini with the dub


Prudence_M

the hug has improved.


icecreamwithketchup

Novak carrying Team Europe, as expected. GOAT stuff from him tonight, Matteo did great today too


faratto_

It's really a 2vs1 on djokovics return


CaptainMcSpiff

Novak "I can dance all day!"


White_Nothing

Great play by Matteo.


kenyan12345

Legit tho, why is kyrgios not here. Him and Sock are elite


Stormlady

Someone said his mom's sick so he went back to Australia.


Extension_Sun_3536

It's actually both his parents who are in bad health. Quote from Nick from last month: >“It’s hard because even travelling now, my mom is in hospital at the moment, my dad hasn’t been very well, my brother just had a baby and I don’t get to be there with my family when normal people would like to be with them."


h4ssan_

Fedal fully avenged now. Thanks, Novak 🫶🏼


Difficult_Squirrel22

Team World looks like they just want to be put out of their misery


dannylenwinn

Excellent play by Matteo. It's MP again, will they get it


icecreamwithketchup

I wish modern singles players did more doubles, so much fun watching them


Darius0995

De Minaur is the Dan James of tennis… roadrunner and not much else. If you know, you know.


not3s1

Pace merchant


soligen

McEnroe will never win this tourney huh?


veilsofrealitydotcom

Apparently not.


truth_iness

Sock trying to invent a new shot there


dannylenwinn

Still battling in the deuce


dannylenwinn

It's Match Point !


Difficult_Squirrel22

I’ve seen hospital waiting rooms with more positive energy than this Team World bench


xManaf

Haha Sock is having Alex's syndrom now


onyxrose81

Lord have mercy, that miss from ADM. I’m embarrassed for him now.


PM_ME_THE_WEATHER20

:wave: to the lady just now


k5122

Stefan djokovic trained nole in wimbledon and got rid of that djokosmash.


dannylenwinn

Djokovic is just owning this right now, doing well


Choice_Awareness

do we have the schedule for tomorrow?


faratto_

Definitely not the best umpire today


hotcolddog

Real talk, Djokotinni should actually play ATP doubles occasionally. Great communication and pretty solid play and strategy


Wazflame

Imagine them on grass, Wimbledon final straight into doubles final lmao


foodkidmaadcity

my redirect king 😍


Zero_dimension98

I can't tell to what extent do you guys actually believe Djokovic's smash is that bad, I know a part is for the meme but you guys do know that it might not be Nadal's smash but it's not actually bad right?


Antonio_is_better

I think someone ran the stats somewhere on like tennisabstract and it was average instead of awful, but there's a certain selection bias you get just from what sort of smashes players take on.


rwwl

It's not that it's bad, he just makes a lot more errors on it than you'd expect for someone who's basically a winning machine


not3s1

Wonder how it feels being the very clear weak link in doubles


katemf

I mean… bad


Difficult_Squirrel22

De Minaur might as well walk off the court and let Sock take them on 2v1 after he serves. Absolutely incapable of doing anything right at the moment


fedfan4life

Imagine putting out this pairing on day 2 instead of day 1.


Schwiliinker

Why didn’t Felix or fritz play doubles lol. I mean shit Diego is better


theageofnicolascage

McEnroe has made some shocking calls all tournament


White_Nothing

I'm baffled by all these smashes that Djokovic is hitting so cleanly.


PM_ME_THE_WEATHER20

Roger just vibing in the back


Kung_Pao_chiken

No djokosmash??


Fragrant_Debt

I deserve Boulter, not him. 😡


Antonio_is_better

I swear De Minaurs cap is going deeper and deeper over his eyes


eggoed

Even the Djokosmash is having a good day.


truth_iness

Still missing that extra pop but pretty good


dannylenwinn

Brilliant play by Djokovic these last 5 minutes. He is stepping up to the stage, this Laver Cup stage and in Big City London


throwaway9995ok

if you want to see the quintessential example of an unforced error, that shot by De Minaur was it


xManaf

Lol i don't want to be in Alex's shoes at this point


Alex_Sander077

We didn't look for a while and out of nowhere Novak got good at doubles


Collecting_Cans

ADM’s tennis game is 92% scurry


cooldude1991

hmm I think it's 94%


cooldude1991

Demon will need knee surgery with all this running


blargh314159

Sock will need a back surgery then


cooldude1991

He needs brain surgery IMO


cofchaos

0 djokosmashes!


dannylenwinn

Aussies and Australia: Go Alex, we are behind you Impressive smash by Novak (yes, no Djokosmash)


Schwiliinker

Bro can they replace de minaur


King0494

Novak: 2 v 1 me bro


mihaela_cld

Somebody pls remind Novak that he is playing doubles and doesn't have to do all the work


Extension_Sun_3536

Unlike Sock, who actually has to do all the work, as De Minaur is not the best of doubles players.....


dannylenwinn

Noooooo Alex :\[


irishmrmagpie

Djokovic vs Team World


faratto_

Point of the day


BuggyDClown

Novak's confidence is through the roof rn


sweetgrapez

Demon really stinking up the joint today 😬😬


dannylenwinn

AWESOME TENNIS !


ragulnidhi

Borg got some of the best seats to watch the match


xManaf

Best rally of that match


Jaden_Ward

Sock shouldn’t have tried for that, Alex was doing fine in the rally


Difficult_Squirrel22

What will Team World do for doubles tomorrow? Back to Sock and Tiafoe? They have literally no depth on doubles besides Sock


Extension_Sun_3536

They're definitely missing Isner there, who was originally supposed to be on the team. Can't play Sock with Tiafoe again, as the same pairing is not allowed. They'll probably play Sock again, as he's THE doubles guy. My guess is that they'll pair him with Fritz, or maybe FAA


Nayarali

Can sock play 4 times?


Extension_Sun_3536

Absolutely. Every player is required to play at least 1 singles match, no limit on how much doubles you can play. The requirement there is that you can't use the same pairing twice and at least 4 of the players have to play doubles. So one player can play with 3 different partners, or you just use new pairings


k5122

~~I heard that there is no doubles on 3rd day~~. It is showing in schedule(as u/yelo2 pointed it out). So, I don't know.


Extension_Sun_3536

There is. First match tomorrow will be the doubles match. Pretty sure they'll play Sock again for doubles. My guess is that he'll play with Fritz, or maybe FAA? Only 2 decent doubles combo's IMO


dannylenwinn

The crowd is cheering for Alex! The crowd is cheering for Alex! They are going crazy for him


HopeistheAnthemLITM

Bjorn is representing the silent film era of tennis.


Power_mind

You are brilliant!!! ROFL


dannylenwinn

Indeed, no Sinner and Alcaraz on Team Europe. Opelka says Sinner wasn't good enough to make the team then \*laughs\*


Schwiliinker

RIP team world 🫤


Makeitperfect

The cameraman assigned to find Fritz’s girlfriend has one more day before he’s out of a job.


dannylenwinn

Alex will hold here for sure, for morale purposes


Difficult_Squirrel22

The music on the Tennis Channel Laver Cup promo makes me feel like I’m about get raped by a transformer


Antonio_is_better

That is a sentence I was not ready to read.


HopeistheAnthemLITM

Poor Johnny Mac. Deserves to coach a winning team some time.


onairmastering

If he would actually call people from WORLD. not only from aus and North America. Farah/cabal are grand slam winners and number ones in doubles for fucks sake


onyxrose81

You have to play a singles match according to rules so no, he can’t call them.


rubbish_bin030121

to be honest, it is his fault, he should let Felix or Talyor play yesterday and let one of them play pair with Sock today


dannylenwinn

Poor Alex :(


Power_mind

Literally was just going to post this!


tigrefacile

I’m a 3.75 on a good day but I could definitely take a set off Borg if the format was (Set 1) y’know, tennis (Set 2) motivational speaking (Champions TB) irrelevant because I’ve already beaten Bjorn Borg at motivational speaking.


Grunge_bob

Bjorn Borg is the Rolex commercials of coaching.
