I’m confused how the scoring works? How many points does a team get for a victory in singles and doubles? Thanks


seewhyaxe

It’s split into day 1, 2 and 3. Day 1 - 1 point for each win Day 2 - 2 points for each win Day 3 - 3 points for each win First to 13 points wins


TKGB24

Thank you!


exclaim_bot

>Thank you! You're welcome!


dingjima

It is hilarious the level of analysis people have gone through on Tiafoe's and Team World's innocuous comments at the bench. Too much time on their hands


seewhyaxe

They should give an MVP award to one player from the winning team..! Either sock or FAA I guess

Capivara_19

Sorry if this was covered but are Casper and Fritz going to play? Or is it already decided?


absurditas

Team World has already won, no further matches.


hcbaron

Felix's serves were on point today! He was painting the lines all day. Incredible serving against the world's best returner.


thcm123

How much do captains get on the winning team?


jack2047

Remember when everyone was sucking Novak off yesterday? What happened? Lol


suetoniusp

Let me taste the salty Euro tears.


WPackN2

So no last match? Why did they gave he cup to team world? I thought there is a last match to decide the winner.


Grunge_bob

It's first to 13 points


TKGB24

Is it a point per match win? How is it scored?


Grunge_bob

The matches on day one are worth 1, day two is worth 2 each, then day 3 is 3 each


WPackN2

Ahh, so they were warming up for no reason?


Familiar-Stock6693

Stef could have won until the very last second. They had to warm up.


jsnoodles

Last Tsitsipas post for idk like a week maybe. It’s so interesting to me that all his friends/people he gets on with are like 35+ year old guys and WTA players. He just doesn’t fit in with the guys his age.


RoosterIcy

He gets along with 35+ and WTA players? From what I’ve seen he doesn’t really interact with anyone on tour.


Lachie07

I don't think he's got too great of social skills tbh.


WislaHD

He's just not cool, and I stress this as someone who probably falls in the introverted and introspective side of things myself. And that would be fine on its own, but his brand of lack of coolness manifests as cringe (social media posts) or manchild-like (mannerisms and temper tantrums with his parents, like my guy you are in your mid-twenties...). And frankly, I dislike excusing him as just socially awkward because even awkward people don't have stunted sense of what is socially appropriate behaviour and actions. It's a perplexing dynamic because otherwise his tennis is very cool to watch and he is quite marketable and objectively attractive. I know kids absolutely love Tsitsipas, my little cousin was so excited to see him in person. Maybe that's also a telling thing.


Mysterious_Brush4085

He seems a bit awkward so that’s probably why. I like him though


handsomecasper

Yeah, I was desperately trying to see him and Casper bond but nope. Yeah he's a bit awakward but hes such a cutie. and he's so funny and original in his YouTube videos. Having said that, please go to sleep jess. this isn't healthy lol


jsnoodles

You guys all know me too well


iconisanimi

It's okay that you love Stef. Go to bed. 😂


iconisanimi

I'm still after the Roger/Rafa presser from Friday night. Closest thing I've found is this clip, but I want to see the full thing. Has it really just not been released? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eFFhhvclSmc&ab\_channel=TJSportsUSA


Grunge_bob

The laver cup YouTube has one


iconisanimi

THANK YOU! I must have missed it. :)


thcm123

Not exactly LC related but I re-watched the 2017 AO Final last night and my god - Fed with the laser precision BH the last set. I’m really, really, really gonna miss this man 💔🥹


hojbjerfc

My Game started at 9-8 in the breaker so i missed the end but lets go foe. Still so stupid to schedule Stef for that match tho


plentytofthoughts

Why?


hojbjerfc

Ruud is pretty much the most suited player for this court and the 3rd match on day 3 was always gonna be a must win for Team europe if they got there. And foe has owned Stef recently


_Crazy_Asian_

I would always question this play order of Team Europe, no way Casper be the last one! I guess they believed Novak had it in the bag, so the worst case scenario was to have Casper to battle it out at the 4th ...


JoaquimGianini

I think so too. Ruud is just someone who’s been having a better season. Also, Ruud is a better choice for a match of such pressure. Mentally he is far superior than Stefanos, and would be able to handle better the stakes.


iconisanimi

Hey thanks dudes for a great weekend, I've had so much fun here. Laughed out loud a dozen times. (Most of) you are quality peeps.


HarshaKing

Me who's from RoW and a Big 4 fan who was celebrating every Team Europe win till now: I guess we won? Let's go never doubted you guys!


wabazai

Wasn’t able to watch the FAA Djoko match — did Djoko start having wrist issues in the middle of the match or has he been sustaining an injury that I’ve completely forgotten?


uma100

he had wrist surgery a few weeks ago according to Opelka


AlfaG0216

Source?


uma100

the broadcast


stoic_trader

No, it was before the match I think yesterdays match put stress on his wrists, Jim said that it could be due to less match practice + age, so I think it might not be that serious and he will play next ATP tournaments as scheduled


jsnoodles

Just a heads up to make sure you report any dumb shit and all racist comments are being met with bans xoxo


Darius0995

Tiafoe singing “staying alive” as Rod Laver is still in the camera shot struggling to walk sure is something…


stoic_trader

This was the first LaverCup match I watched and I wasn't expecting much. But as soon as Fedal match started and I saw the intensity I knew that this tournament means something else for these players. On the next day, Djokovic trashed Tiafo as if Tiafo killed his family member practically signed the deal for me.


WislaHD

Diego found and broke open the champagne before anyone else lmfao


Grunge_bob

He knew they were waiting for him


WinterSunshine22

Lol Kyrgios played every Laver Cup, except for the one year they finally managed to clutch out the win.


_Crazy_Asian_

JAAAAA ... I'm happy for Team World, even more happy no Kyrgios


dasheeshblahzen

Diego found.


White_Nothing

Lol Diego still on court taking photos ahahaah


jlwkww

Which language does Roger and his family speak with each other? Weird question, I know


recollectionsmayvary

Roger speaks French, English, and Swiss German. At Roland Garros, he’s fluently addressed the crowd in French when interviewed and obviously we’ve heard English. He also speaks Swiss German.


grgile

You also didnt answer the question.


Metazz

When he was hugging his kids after his doubles match and they were all crying he was talking to them in English. But I assume they also speak German as he is from Basel which speaks a variety of Swiss German. Maybe they also speak French too dunno.


tomuelmerson

This is right. He's also said that his kids and Mirka sometimes speak Slovak to each other, which he can't understand


TuneSquadFan4Ever

If they are like the one Swiss family I know, the answer is "Yes"


uma100

Diego ditched Team World lol


WislaHD

Oh man poor Diego, can't be spotted in the locker room behind all these tall dudes


icecreamwithketchup

Do ATP Cup and Laver Cup technically count as titles for FAA?


Chosen1gup

They’re treated separately as team events, in the stats


stoic_trader

Interesting question I want to know the answer as well since this is an official ATP tournament


simplecitydress

hope they find diego


kKunoichi

McEnroe looks happy


jbartlettcoys

I always forget Rog's mum is south african


UpsideDownTaurus

Thanks for 20+ years of pure awesomeness Roger!!! We love you ❤️


[deleted]

Too Ruud to give the highest rank player in both teams just 1 point to play!


jbartlettcoys

He was set up to play the most important match of the day, I bet they didn't even consider that they could lose the first 3 matches


ProgressEuphoric

Rudd should have played instead of stef and stef/Matteo could have played the decider


Unaatennista

I don’t think they thought Nole would lose


Slambodog

So, did Djokovic and Hiddleston shake hands during the coin toss? Because my new conspiracy theory is that Loki, in order to create maximum chaos, messed with Djokovic's wrist before the match


Ramiah73

It's funny that you ask this coz Tom actually offered Novak a handshake but Novak saw it too late while he was putting his hand around Tom's shoulder (for the pic)


Mysterious_Brush4085

Loved the fact that Roger stayed with his team after Friday - made me believe his words about not abandoning tennis. I’m a huge Fed fan so it’s making his retirement a little less heartbreaking


Unaatennista

He also said he will be at Laver Cup next year


Grunge_bob

He was at the last one even though he couldn't play


uma100

Watch Novak convince him to play


madisonrees

I wish there could’ve been a laver cup that included peak Delpo & Nishikori for team world


Ignitrium

Yes I always wish for this. And also to have Wawrinka as well


JackyVeronica

Yes 🇯🇵🇯🇵🇯🇵🇯🇵🇯🇵 !!!


Tigerkem

I can't believe Team World finally won one.


bezline

Well deserved.


Unaatennista

I know people wanted Federer to lift the trophy but this is much much better for the future of his event


jsnoodles

In conclusion, fuck you Tommy Paul.


Unaatennista

Why?


jsnoodles

Main instigator of bullying Stef.


KnowledgeNate

Haha how so? I missed that.


jsnoodles

Said he was gonna get into his head about his daddy. Just stupid juvenile crap.


iconisanimi

That's my only complaint about TW - the whole frat vibe.


Pristine-Citron-7393

Taylor and Diego were fine. The others though? Yeah...


iconisanimi

Agreed.


jsnoodles

Frat plus old man Diego.


Unaatennista

My stream didn’t show any of it I need to look on Twitter but that’s shitty


Grunge_bob

I didn't see any of it either


stoic_trader

Well Jim also said that roger will be a captain after next year


Unaatennista

Diego is the MVP of this Laver Cup for me 💀


Ning11

Anyone know when the tickets go on sale for Vancouver laver cup? I see some tickets online but they look like scalped tickets or something


JackyVeronica

Booking my Vancouver flight now 😂


Ramiah73

Stef vs Tiafoe Aces: 12-4 First serve %: 74-65 First serve win %: 76-71 Second serve win %: 71-40 Points won: 81-63 Games won: 12-8 Breaks of serve: 2-0 Winner: Tiafoe


stoic_trader

Tennis point system is brutal to begin with and to top it off this tournament's point system is even brutal. Too many resets after every game after every set


A-dab

The best part of this event is Diego shithousing his way to the win. Lost the only match he played, still going home with the trophy lol


jbartlettcoys

This was the case with Dan Evans for GB's Davis Cup win, he didn't touch the trophy and when asked about it is always clear he contributed absolutely nothing lol, gotta respect it


Unaatennista

LMAO 🤣 I need to watch this interview


Unaatennista

Lost badly too 💀


Ashnard435

I didn't get to watch this today but in a bizarre sense this tournament feels like a macrocosm of the Wimbledon 2019 final. Europe win their matches convincingly while Team World edge their victories in tiebreaks? Team Europe lose after choking away match points? Sadly appropriate farewell for Federer. I say this as a huge fan of his.


Grunge_bob

Djokovic is Europe tho


chutsal123

After not winning the doubles match with the match point, you just knew this was going to happen


Unaatennista

This is melancholy


KnowledgeNate

Can anyone tell me how in the world FAA beat Novak? I missed it.


Pristine-Citron-7393

Djokovic played like crap. Worst match of the year from him outside of the Vesely loss. He would've lost to any of Team World playing the way he did.


AliveWalking

By playing better tennis


KnowledgeNate

Thanks, jackass.


AliveWalking

Aww, someone's angry.


Unaatennista

FAA outplayed him and Nole’s wrist was bothering him


chutsal123

Can't lie Tiafoe mentality is incredible. He wasnt ready to lose


iconisanimi

Babs: "never seen Johnny smile so much, have you?" Jim: "not sober" ☠️


jsnoodles

Bold to assume he’s sober now.


Infas63

What are the matches/slams that basically define the Big 3? Any must-watches? Just got into tennis recently and I really enjoy the friendship beyond rivalries. Why is Federer generally regarded as the most beautiful/graceful player - what matches best showcases this?


Atlaffinity75

Re Fed: his movement *appears* effortless. A one handed backhand is generally more flowing than a two hand backhand. Also the FH is a swash buckling straight arm shot for winners, not a more muscular topspin. At his best it was very pleasing to the eye.


UpsideDownTaurus

Check out Nadal/Federer 2008 Wimbledon final. IMO one of the greatest matches ever played. Also Nadal/Medvedev AO final this year


Mundane-Poet1404

Do you watch soccer/football?


kKunoichi

If you have time you have to watch the Fedal Wimbledon trilogy of 2006-2008


ArrowBacon

Federer is the embodiment of tennis. Just look at anything from 2003-2010 and his domination is obvious. He got more classy with age and has possibly done more for the game than anyone else.


White_Nothing

That trophy is as big as Diego lol


-Miklaus

So, no Ruud-Fritz match or…?


deeb17

Honestly as a fairly recent tennis fan I didn’t know much about this event until the last few days but it looks great. Think I’m going to next year since it’s in Canada, hopefully Shapo will be there too.


Mundane-Poet1404

Yea i also found about it recently, as someone who watches a lot of team sports, team tennis was definitely an exciting idea for me. And it really lived up to my expectations


uma100

Sock: "I know we don't have a lot of experience with trophies guys but I think this is how it works"


kimmychanga

Lol Jack sock lifting the trophy as a singular win


jbartlettcoys

Just a brilliant 3 days of tennis. All the naysayers can go hang. Remember the joy currently on Johnny Mac's face when you're calling it an exhibition next year


WislaHD

Just gotta stop using exhibition as a dirty word


Mysterious_Brush4085

Watched it for the first time this year, wasn’t expecting much, but it was brilliant. Loving the concept and the players seem to enjoy it and take it pretty seriously. Seeing Johnny Mac so happy is adorable too, wish Borg cared more haha


Grunge_bob

Johnny has always been a harder competitor than Borg imo. Borg retired at 25. Nothing against thr guy but Johnny's fight is unmatched by many.


WislaHD

Roger was really spot on with the design of this exhibition, it's so well done. I always found it a tad pointless to honour people after they've passed, so I really like that they honour Rod Laver while he is still with us to celebrate tennis.


deeb17

FAA my MVP.


dannylenwinn

He was fantastic Felix


Relevant-Ad2254

ELI5 how did team world win if team europe won most of the matches? Edit: why the downvotes, I honestly didn’t know. This my first year paying attention to this tournament


Mundane-Poet1404

Points per win increase each day. Day 1 is one point - day 3 is three points per win. Team world won all their games on day 3


Chosen1gup

World won more matches. 6 to 5


Rivercat0338

Day 3 matches worth 3 points


Relevant-Ad2254

Thanks!!! ELI5 why they’re worth more?


Rivercat0338

It's the format of the event. 1st day 1 point, 2nd 2 pts, 3rd 3 points. It increases the competitiveness over the weekend and minimizes a blowout, in theory.


Chosen1gup

So that the event can’t be mathematically over by day 2


Relevant-Ad2254

Got it thanks!


Kahn-wald

And people saying "US Open was the only opportunity for Tiafoe" He's made the QF at the Australian Open, and the Vienna final beating Tsitsipas and Sinner. He's pretty good, just can get really cocky when he's confident and this usually comes back at him.


jsnoodles

I can’t wait to see him in Australia he’s going to be so damn popular.


Greatkitchener

I appreciate Schwartzman who played one match, lost horrifically, then was never heard from again.


jsnoodles

Just looking over at Europe wistfully wanting to speak Spanish with Matteo and Novak.


Unaatennista

LMAO


chutsal123

Tsitsipas is actually not rated. There is a clip of Tiafoe saying he doesn't care if he loses to anyone else but not Tsitsipas.


Southern-Panda911

:0 that’s such an unpleasant thing to say! do you have a link by any chance?


chutsal123

https://twitter.com/rafastefbaes/status/1574072721528561665


Grunge_bob

It's not as bad as I thought it would be once I actually saw the vide personally.


Southern-Panda911

fucking yikes🤢 and the rest of the team giggling like a bunch of middle school bullies. yeah now I really do dislike Tiafoe


jsnoodles

That’s such a shitty take Stef is a top 10 player who can beat anyone on his day. Like it’s not like he’d be losing to Petros.


chutsal123

I like Tsitsipas a lot too and think he is a very good player. Just talking about the clip where Tiafoe says that about Tsitsipas. Maybe he doesnt like Tsitsipas personally


jsnoodles

Yeah I meant a shitty take by him not you. I saw the clip too.


chutsal123

Yeah a bit weird. Maybe just trying to hype himself but still weird


Rich_Strawberry_795

I can’t really see why he doesn’t even seem that bad


alienrefugee51

Where’s Nadal?


Unaatennista

He went home yesterday


UpsideDownTaurus

He left yesterday morning


alienrefugee51

Oh wow. Everything ok with him?


UpsideDownTaurus

His wife's having a baby in a few weeks I think. He only came down to support Roger


Grunge_bob

>His other wife's having a baby in a few weeks


juankruh1250

Federer is his first


alienrefugee51

That’s kinda what I assumed. Thanks


iconisanimi

Oh boy, the atmosphere is seriously bloody weird, isn't it?


jsnoodles

This is Stef’s favourite tournament he’s said it on multiple occasions. It doesn’t matter that he didn’t really lose it for them, that’s not how it’s going to feel.


uma100

This is proof of concept, I think it's a good outcome for Roger if a little sad


Unaatennista

Is there going to be a doubles exho match?


vadim69tudor

is nadal there? I cant seem to find him


madsdab

I feel bad for Stef. He looks so sad and heartbroken 😔💔


KnowledgeNate

He looked like he did after Roger's last match.


clifflee1016

The cup is too heavy for Johnny Mac, lol


Crypt0P

Such a bitter end to an otherwise great event. Would’ve loved to see a last match decider, but alas…


dannylenwinn

Would have been good to see Fritz vs Ruud, but Team World makes history regardless


thelastattemptsname

Woodbridge : mark your calendars for September next year Borg immediately after : will see you soon not exactly sure when


simplecitydress

😂


Relevant-Ad2254

Why is the fritz match canceled?


thelastattemptsname

No point in playing a dead rubber for a glorified exhibition tournament I guess.


vuluu912

no mention of Murray from Mcenroe... lmao


Taston95

He did.


Difficult_Squirrel22

McEnroe looks like a kid on Christmas, so happy for him!!!


iconisanimi

Team World looking terrified Johnny Mac's gonna dance again.


Unaatennista

This is Johnny’s moment Lmaoo


sweetgrapez

Lmao low key loving this for Johnny Mac 🤣


vuluu912

i have a feeling this lost is gonna haunt Stef as much as or even more than the FO’ 20 final, he seems THAT emotional


Earnmuse_is_amanrag

Why is Stef so haunted by Djokovic getting bagelled by Rafa?


stoic_trader

In what capacity Roger will be there the next year? he's a co-founder of the tournament as well right?


araheem94

Rafa is going to be super unlikely so they definitely need to try and get Nole. May be Roger comes in some coaching capacity or plays an exhibition


kKunoichi

Roger has to coach team Europe. That would be so awesome


cottoncandysedai

Rodick for Team World. Give the people what they want


Grunge_bob

Lol please get Brad Gilbert or someone with tactical tennis. "Okay listen, so if you ace him he can't return the ball" "OK what if he gets it back" "What did you not understand?"


KnowledgeNate

I would absolutely love that.
