The Day 1 of the Laver Cup was kickstarted by a clash between Sock and Casper Ruud. Ruud won the match in a nervy tiebreaker before Stefanos Tsitsipas dislodged Diego Schwartzman in straight-sets. Tsitsipas’ win gave Team Europe a 2-0 advantage going into the evening session.

The evening session started with Andy Murray taking on Alex de Minaur. The first set went for 81 minutes with Murray clinching it. de Minaur however found his way back with a easy win in the second set before coming clutch in the third set to get the first points of the year for Team World.

Federer and Nadal will look to restore the 2-point advantage. With Federer set to retire at the end of this match, he would certainly look to hang up a winning racket and go out on a high in front of a packed crowd at the O2 Arena in London.

Fans were however impressed with Federer‘s sorcery. While it was certainly a lucky shot, many attributed to his magical touch that had made millions fans of him and the sport over his glorious 24-year long career.
