Okay those who aren't watching Laver cup are actually missing quality matches.

This is my second thread about it. And I still don't understand what's exactly in it for players in this tournament but let me say that the matches have been epic.

At least the highlights are indicative of high quality matches Schwartzman- Rublev looks like a treat. Especially at the ending stages.

It's a fun event and quality is obviously going to be good since most of the too 20 players are featuring. Also getting to watch slowcourts after few months seem to be a breath of fresh air. It should be like this in tour with periods of fast court and slow court tennis

Players’ over the top reactions are really cringe, they try too hard to act like they actually consider this an important event. Rublev’s reaction at 1:18 in the video being a perfect example of that.

Expected that from a djokofan...as they can't stand the success of Laver Cup

How did you feel about Novak's reaction to beating Berrettini at the French Open?
Obviously you have no clue about what I've said in the past about some of Djokovic's antics. My avy doesn't mean I support everything he does, nor should it suggest I have to justify his behavior. Grow up.

It's just ironic is all. And chill the fk out you don't have to get defensive on a message board.

Well next time don't insinuate false and stupid things out of thin air just for the sake of coming up with a comeback and I won't get defensive. I can appreciate good jokes and don't mind messing with other people as long they can behave properly.

Team Europe is currently up 11-1. This is why Laver Cup is a joke, it’s basically the Harlem Globetrotters vs the Washington Generals. When one team is stacked with all the top 10 players there’s no way they’re going to lose. The Mad Lad just embarrassed Shapo 6-4, 6-0.
Good, maybe it'll inspire the Americas (and Australia) to get their **** together.

Europe's won every year but at least in previous editions the matches were all close. Lots of dramatic final set tiebreaks over the years now.

I know the scoring format is silly to try and make sure it's still competitive on Day 3, but in 2017 & 2019 they did still go down to the final match.

QFT.

However you view this event it certainly brings out the best in the players. The matches have mostly been great!

I watched the night session, it was fun to watch. Isner really stepped it up during the second set tiebreak and the match tiebreak.
He was doing his best to save the honour of Team World but couldn't quite bring it off. Brave and gutsy try though.

The imbalance seems too great. All the top players are in Team Europe so their advantage is a bit unfair. Maybe they should just name the teams after a past tennis great and choose the players by lot like they do at the WTF?

I meant during the first night doubles. He carried his partner over the finish line during the second set tie break and match tie break.

That’s what I’ve been saying they should do. JMac and Borg were the captains for the previous 3 editions, just have them draft the players. Have a ceremonial coin toss, the winner of the coin toss gets the 1st pick.

If its not lopsided, people say it's scripted
It it's lopsided, people say it's a joke because it's one sided

Mostly Federer haters hating on the LC is what I'm seeing here no matter how it goes down

Your blind hatred towards Fed is pushing you to demean Laver Cup. Who cares about TT imposters...the real response was seen in the stands with crowds
This is about Laver Cup, not Federer. Federer is my favorite player after Djokovic. You can even see in this very forum a lot of members whose favorite player is Federer giving very little credit to Laver Cup because it's basically an exhibition, such as @BeatlesFan who knows way more about me and my preferences than you do.

I did advise you to not embarrass yourself, now you look like nothing but an obsessed fantard clown that can't stand people criticizing anything remotely related to his fav player. Congrats.

It's on Eurosport. I haven't paid for that channel. I would've watched if Amazon Prime had the rights.

Well, I've been a passionate Fed fan since 2000 and still think LC is a bunch of scripted crap and never watch exho's since there's little point. Imperator is not a blind Fed hater at all. So I'm sorry to say you're wrong on both counts. You can redeem yourself by posting something negative about Zverev though. :p
