DOUBLES MATCH: Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal vs. Sam Querrey and Jack Sock

FIRST MATCH: Querrey was no match for Federer. It was another dominant performance from the “Maestro”, who easily dispatched of the American 6-4, 6-2 to put team Europe up 5-1.

SECOND MATCH: There was a real possibility for team World to get two points in this match. Sock pushed Nadal all the way; however, “el toro” just was determined to win and fought to snatch the match tiebreak away. Nadal won the match 6-3, 3-6, 11-9 to put team Europe up 7-1.

THIRD MATCH: The whole weight of the team was on Kyrgios’ shoulders and it looked as if the burden was too great when he dropped the first set; however, the Australian found a way to hang in there mentally and stole the second set in the tiebreak. It came down to a match tiebreak and Kyrgios stepped up big to win 4-6, 7-6(4), 10-6 and give the team two much needed points. Europe still leads 7-3.

FOURTH MATCH: Sock and Querrey tried; yet, once again, team World fell short in the match tiebreak and the first time duo of Federer-Nadal came through in the end to win 6-4, 1-6, 10-5 to put Europe further ahead 9-3. Europe is now four points away from claiming the inaugural Laver Cup.
