'Amazing comeback' - Roger Federer heaps praise on Team World after they seal first Laver Cup win
Roger Federer said he had been "very confident" at the start of Day 3 of the Laver Cup as Team Europe held an 8-4 lead, but that was whittled away as Team World won all three of the day's matches to take the 2022 crown 13-8. Federer joked he "hoped he didn't make the team lose", alluding to his emotional farewell on Friday night, where he signed off his career by playing doubles with Rafael Nadal.
'It was beautiful, wonderful' - Federer reflects on emotional final match at Laver Cup
Federer's Team Europe had led 8-4 going into Sunday's matches, but they lost all three of the rubbers; the first in the doubles, and then the two singles ties that followed, as Felix Auger-Aliassime stunned Novak Djokovic, and then Frances Tiafoe mounted a remarkable fightback - staving off four match points - to defeat Stefanos Tsitsipas.
All of which meant Casper Ruud's final match against Taylor Fritz went unplayed, with Team World holding an unassailable 13-8 lead.
