    Points won by each set: | 7-23, 46-47, 10/8 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    24 % Tiafoe – 18 of 75
    37 % Tsitsipas – 26 of 69

    Tsitsipas [6] had four match points in the tie-break (6:5, *9:8, 10:9, *11:10) – at 11-all Tiafoe played his only BH winner (passing-shot down the line). In the super tie-break the Greek trailed *4:8 after netting a relatively easy ball at the net, then at *7:8 he made a casual forehand error. It’s quite remarkable that Tiafoe [19] has won his last 14 tie-breaks (12 singles, 2 doubles)! Team “World” wins the Laver Cup for the first time, after four unsuccessful attempts. “I don’t want to talk too much because I want the party to begin very soon. But I want to thank my players,” John McEnroe, the “World” captain, said during the trophy ceremony. “They brought the energy, belief and intensity. I want to especially thank my brother Patrick, my right-hand mind.”

    Serve & volley: Tiafoe 1/1, Tsitsipas 1/1

    Casper Ruud – Taylor Fritz, not played

    * A rule exception: the last match in Federer’s professional career, he wanted to play alongside Nadal, so the Spaniard came to London only for day 1; it caused 8 players from Europe participated in the first two days while according to the rules 6 should play, and there’s a 7th teammate, who is an alternative for Sunday (this year it was Tommy Paul for “World”)
    ** Norrie & Fritz are the first pair of players to face each other at three different team competitions within a season (Fritz won at ATP Cup & Laver Cup while Norrie prevailed at Davis Cup), it’s funny they are both sensational Indian Wells champions of the last two editions
