Murrettini first up for doubles
Djokovic is my hero 😍😍
Novak really avenged the rest of the Big 4 in one day lmao
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
Only two matches are guaranteed for tomorrow unfortunately.
Fuck me, was I brainfarting in the wrong thread during the Djoko match in a live thread? Didn't know about this thread.
Anybody know when the match ups will be announced for tomorrow?
They are listed now
From Laver Cup website:
>Sunday’s lineup is announced an hour after play ends on Saturday night.
So should be very soon
Anyone else feel like Novak has put some muscle on? Dudes looking ripped
he has done some martial arts lately
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.
He looks thinner than before lol
Which makes him more leaner so you see less fat and more muscles
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.
This Laver cup has been extremely fun
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
By the way, the Laver cup without Zverev is indeed a better event
Don't worry, Zverev is still there (in the crowd)
The birthday balloons in the TW room add an extra level of sadness to the dejected McEnroe brothers scene
Everyone realising that life is much easier when Djokovic is ON your team
How many signatures is Nole doing? I love it! He seems so happy
This laver cup really uniting big three fans everywhere
lol wait for the next Rafaole match, shit gonna be crazy with the 1 slam difference..
True let’s enjoy the peace while it lasts then 😅
Eh give it till AO 23 if Nole or Rafa get an easy draw
Well, we are on the same team =)
'TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY ALL I WANT IS RF AUTO GRAPH' Signed by Djokovic 😂
TBF looks like he got it, there was already something on it
Imagine Kygs Novak doubles, that'd be funny as hell
Kyrgios might finally get that dinner…
That would be a great duo
Ull regret what you said when Roger beats u for a record breaking 75th slam in the 2065 wimbledon final Nole
If Novak brings Roger back for another match... Nadal gon sue
Rafa about to desert wifeys birth for a last ride with his side ~~chick~~ man
What was that woman doing touching Novak's collar?
She wanted to have a selfie with him
Pretty inappropriate way of doing that, glad the security guard stepped in, and nice to see she apologised too
Was she the one who he avoided and never gave the selfie too after that? Lmao
Novak is THE MANNNN
Don't give us hope, Novak!
Let him hear it! 😭😭😭
Novak could rhyme off names from a phone book and make it sound like the most eloquent thing.
That shout out to Roger for a return was awesome, nice one Nole!
Now this is a bromance I can get behind ❤️
Yes Novak use peer pressure for the greater good
Novak doing double time with tennis and the PR
Novak stirring that pot 😂 Do it, Roger!
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?
"Would Rocket Rod even have been considered good if he'd been born in this era? I cannot speak to this"
Well that's kinda the point - to honor the man
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
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
Djokovic flexing his tennis skills just as much as his speech skills tonight
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
Nole getting on his tippytoes to hug Matteo 😂❤️
Do the captains assemble the doubles team? Or volunteers basis lol
Djokottini needs to happen more, that was a fun match!
Djokottini winning doubles Wimbledon next year
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
Yeah probably Ruud and Tsitsipas first, then Djokovic
Damn it as a straight man I must admit Berrettini is one sexy, sexy man.
as a lesbian i must agree
Hold up… didn’t Katie Boulder previously date Sock, and is now dating ADM? No wonder this doubles partnership was awful 😂
Sock dated the whole WTA ? Straight female tennis players have awful taste for men.
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
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.
That buffet they have in the back is bomb. I'd be back there all day lol.
Anyone catch what Novak said to Sock at the net?
"You think you can just beat Roger in his last match and get away with it?"
Fedal send their regards
Djokettini to take over the doubles world!!
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
*2020 ATP Cup! .. good times 😭
Ah yes, 2020. Before 2020 became “2020” 😭
Novak be like let's finish fast, I have some physiotherapy to do
lol Roger took Novak's stuff
Matteo and Nole should play doubles together more often, they seem to have such a good chemistry
Any guesses on what tomorrow's matches might be?
Novak-Andy vs Diego-FAA
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.
Federer happy thus far
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 😅
Roger bringing Novak water bottles and carrying his bag. This tourney just keeps on giving :')
Djoker was a killer tonight. Picked up right where he left off.
Not too bad for two singles players who never played together
Obviously Djokovic was amazing today but what a good day for Matteo too
Yes won both singles and doubles. Amazing
He is dancing, he is dancing. He says that he will never die.
If the fix was in, demon would’ve played dubs yesterday 💀
Matteo and Novak saving the day today
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.
These players are having stronger emotional reactions to match events than they do at Grand Slams.
Good match boys. GGz
Team Djokotini with the dub
the hug has improved.
Novak carrying Team Europe, as expected. GOAT stuff from him tonight, Matteo did great today too
It's really a 2vs1 on djokovics return
Novak "I can dance all day!"
Great play by Matteo.
Legit tho, why is kyrgios not here. Him and Sock are elite
Someone said his mom's sick so he went back to Australia.
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."
Fedal fully avenged now. Thanks, Novak 🏼
Team World looks like they just want to be put out of their misery
Excellent play by Matteo. It's MP again, will they get it
I wish modern singles players did more doubles, so much fun watching them
De Minaur is the Dan James of tennis… roadrunner and not much else. If you know, you know.
McEnroe will never win this tourney huh?
Sock trying to invent a new shot there
Still battling in the deuce
It's Match Point !
I’ve seen hospital waiting rooms with more positive energy than this Team World bench
Haha Sock is having Alex's syndrom now
Lord have mercy, that miss from ADM. I’m embarrassed for him now.
:wave: to the lady just now
Stefan djokovic trained nole in wimbledon and got rid of that djokosmash.
Djokovic is just owning this right now, doing well
do we have the schedule for tomorrow?
Definitely not the best umpire today
Real talk, Djokotinni should actually play ATP doubles occasionally. Great communication and pretty solid play and strategy
Imagine them on grass, Wimbledon final straight into doubles final lmao
my redirect king 😍
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?
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.
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
Wonder how it feels being the very clear weak link in doubles
I mean… bad
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
Imagine putting out this pairing on day 2 instead of day 1.
Why didn’t Felix or fritz play doubles lol. I mean shit Diego is better
McEnroe has made some shocking calls all tournament
I'm baffled by all these smashes that Djokovic is hitting so cleanly.
Roger just vibing in the back
I deserve Boulter, not him. 😡
I swear De Minaurs cap is going deeper and deeper over his eyes
Even the Djokosmash is having a good day.
Still missing that extra pop but pretty good
Brilliant play by Djokovic these last 5 minutes. He is stepping up to the stage, this Laver Cup stage and in Big City London
if you want to see the quintessential example of an unforced error, that shot by De Minaur was it
Lol i don't want to be in Alex's shoes at this point
We didn't look for a while and out of nowhere Novak got good at doubles
ADM’s tennis game is 92% scurry
hmm I think it's 94%
Demon will need knee surgery with all this running
Sock will need a back surgery then
He needs brain surgery IMO
Aussies and Australia: Go Alex, we are behind you
Impressive smash by Novak (yes, no Djokosmash)
Bro can they replace de minaur
Novak: 2 v 1 me bro
Somebody pls remind Novak that he is playing doubles and doesn't have to do all the work
Unlike Sock, who actually has to do all the work, as De Minaur is not the best of doubles players.....
Noooooo Alex :\[
Djokovic vs Team World
Point of the day
Novak's confidence is through the roof rn
Demon really stinking up the joint today 😬😬
AWESOME TENNIS !
Borg got some of the best seats to watch the match
Best rally of that match
Sock shouldn’t have tried for that, Alex was doing fine in the rally
What will Team World do for doubles tomorrow? Back to Sock and Tiafoe? They have literally no depth on doubles besides Sock
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
Can sock play 4 times?
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
~~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.
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
The crowd is cheering for Alex! The crowd is cheering for Alex! They are going crazy for him
Bjorn is representing the silent film era of tennis.
You are brilliant!!! ROFL
Indeed, no Sinner and Alcaraz on Team Europe.
Opelka says Sinner wasn't good enough to make the team then \*laughs\*
RIP team world
The cameraman assigned to find Fritz’s girlfriend has one more day before he’s out of a job.
Alex will hold here for sure, for morale purposes
The music on the Tennis Channel Laver Cup promo makes me feel like I’m about get raped by a transformer
That is a sentence I was not ready to read.
Poor Johnny Mac. Deserves to coach a winning team some time.
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
You have to play a singles match according to rules so no, he can’t call them.
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
Poor Alex :(
Literally was just going to post this!
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.
Bjorn Borg is the Rolex commercials of coaching.
