The Team Europe clinched the 2018 Laver Cup by defeating Team World by the score of 13-8 at United Center, Chicago. Going into the Sunday's matches, Team Europe, consisting the likes of 2018 Wimbledon and US Open Champion Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer, led their opponents by 7-5 and required two victories to clinch the title.

Team World started the day by winning their doubles match against Team Europe. John Isner and Jack Sock overcame Roger Federer and Alexander Zverev 4-6, 7-6 (2), [11-9]. Later, Federer and Isner faced each other in the singles match with the Swiss maestro prevailing the American 6-7(5) 7-6(6) [10-7]. Federer saved three match points in a dramatic match to help his team be just one win away from winning the tournament.

Alexander Zverev came back from a set down to win against Kevin Anderson 6-7(3) 7-5 10-7 to seal the win for Team Europe. The 20-time Grand Slam Champion Federer was able to kiss the famous trophy for the second consecutive time while Novak Djokovic, Grigor Dimitrov, David Goffin and Kyle Edmund made their debut this year. Roger Federer Accidentally Hit by Partner Novak Djokovic During Laver Cup 2018 Doubles Match!

With champions like Federer and Novak Djokovic, the European squad was always going to be tough to beat, but Team World deserve credit to make the contest exciting.
