All of you talking negative about Laver Cup should be here. The atmosphere is awesome. Love the court and love the lighting. My friend is American so she’s rooting for Team World and I’m Scottish so it’s Team Europe for me. We are both hoarse after Felix and Matteo. What a match. These guys are taking this seriously, I can tell you that.
Love that you're having a great time. The detractors never get the atmosphere.

These emotions are NOT fake. These guys are in it to win it.
I can't believe it. The scenes we get to see are the most emotional we get to see in tennis. There is more excitement and happiness than in any other tournament, so I can't believe it is sincere.

What are you talking about ??? 2017 the last match between Fed and Nick clinched it after the miracle of miracles happens, Isner "beats" Nadal. 2019 Zverev beats Raonic in a super to clinch in the last match. Ok I will grant you 2018 which made it all the way to the second to last match.
Don't forget they have concocted this wacky scoring system to make sure one team doesn't get blown out. In the Ryder Cup you have had blowouts because it's legit, the Laver Cup is made for tv, like wrestling.
Nope the last match didn’t happen because Zverev put them over the top before it.

What do you mean nope?? In 2018 it was the second to last match that Zverev won which is exactly what I said in my post:unsure:.
Sorry I replied to the wrong post. I meant to reply to the one who said that wasn’t the case.

All I know is that the Laver Cup is in my home town and it's an opportunity to see several of my favorite players. I only will be at it tomorrow so whoever plays tomorrow I will get to see play but I will get to see all the team players rooting for their teammates. Do I wish it was the French Open or the US Open or Indian Wells? Of course but they aren't in my home town! I regard this as a fun event and nothing to take all that seriously. I will be going tomorrow and my seat is pretty good, I will have a good view in the middle (facing the side of the net) so I am good to go!!!!
And you also have to pick only a match or two. I got tickets for every session here and get to see all of these fantastic players. Great opportunity.

I was rooting for Ruud and Berrettini and they both won!!!! I am a Team Europe fan but I do love my Diego Schwartzman!!!
As a Scot, I’m a team Europe but I have to admit that I felt bad for Felix. He really should have won that match. It all came down to just a few points and not converting those chances he had.

Notice Tsitsi is hanging out with Feli and Enquist? Haven’t seen any interaction with Med or Zverev at all. Not surprising really.

I think Kyrgios can beat Tsitsipas. We all know he brings out his best for LC. The question is will he?I really enjoyed the doubles yesterday. Isner was on fire. Shapo had way too many unforced errors but he was able to ride Isner’s coattails and they played a great final tiebreak. Seems the court is playing more like a clay court which favours Stefanos. I’m excited to see the matches today.
