Team World entered the final day trailing 4-8 to Team Europe but managed to win the first three matches and finally won the tournament.

This Laver Cup also witnessed the farewell of one of the greatest tennis players of all time, Roger Federer.

John McEnroe‘s dancing on the top of the table left everyone on social media shocked and was hilariously trolled for such antics during the celebration where some even mocked him saying that this is the happiest they have seen the former American legend in a long time or even the fact smile. Some even took a dig at Team Europe players for forgetting their loss and celebrating the win together with Team World.
