Tiafoe to Replace JMDP in Laver Cup

Federer and Del Potro

Federer and DelPo are 2 of my 3 faves but I have to say I hope Delpo gave more notice than just telling Federer today that he wasn't going to be able to play. That's not cool, unless it's more than just Delpo's "tired".
Does seem a bit dubious. His USO wasn't even all that taxing.

Especially when you consider Djokovic is playing.

Glad to see Frances get some public exposure. Really like the kid.

If Sock played all doubles rubbers that'd be cool
I remember when the Bryan Bros (not sure if one or both) said singles players would struggle in doubles.

Jack Sock immediately wins b2b doubles slams. They also said that before Stanimal/Fraud won Olympic Doubles Gold and beat them on their way to doing it.




Fred/Sock are two of the GOATs though so I guess they're an exception not the rule.

I want DJokovic/Zverev vs Sock/anyone, only for Sock to body Djoko and go "LOOK AT ME, THIS IS MY ****ING COURT NOW", while looking at Zverev

Can't wait to watch Jack Sock destroy Europe in some doubles. Very disappointed that "Big Foe" is playing though, I wish they had gotten somebody else instead. Team World actually had a decent chance before he replaced Delpo.

The small part of me that is a Delpo fan, is very glad he is skipping the worthless Laver cup.
Why waste valuable time for recovery and practice?

Delpo gonna tear the courts down in China.

This exhibition is a joke. I am still a Fed fan but I have lost a lot of respect for this money grab.

Plus, Tiafoe dropped out of a real tournament next week in Asia so that he could play. Shouldn't he receive a fine? What was his excuse? I have to go to Chicago to get a bigger payday than I would likely make at your tournament?
