cr. laver cup
Andrey Rublev and Alexander Zverev have sealed Team Europe a fourth straight Laver Cup trophy following a defeat of Reilly Opelka and Denis Shapovalov at Boston’s TD Garden on Sunday.
The comprehensive 14-1 result was secured 6-2, 6-7(4), 10-3 in the opening clash on Day 3 and capped a dominant outing for Captain Bjorn Borg’s line-up.
The Swede has won all four editions of the Laver Cup – in Prague, Chicago, Geneva and now Boston – and paid tribute to his playing cohort, all six of which won at least one match for Team Europe.
“I’m very proud, of course, to defend the title … they played great tennis,” Borg said.
“Of course, Team World, they have the home advantage here but… we have a good relationship, both teams. They’re going to play each other so many times… I love this team. What can you say? It’s been great tennis.”
