Laver Cup Anderson defeats Djokovic as Team World bounce back to cut Europe’s lead

And later he reached the Wimbledon semifinals, losing a almost seven-hour-long marathon to Kevin Anderson, who is his teammate this week on Team World.

Europe responded superbly after that early setback however, with the 37-year-old Federer returning to secure a vital three points against Isner in the first singles match of the day. "I loved it. Obviously I wanted to win as much as Roger".

Roger Federer put on an absolute masterclass to thump Aussie Nick Kyrgios at the Laver Cup in Chicago.

Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Alexander Zverev, Dimitrov, David Goffin and Edmund make up Team Europe.

And so the game between the two immensely talented players went again, just as it had three weeks ago at the US Open, as Kyrgios was left in awe of the shot selection employed by Federer.

Edmund's 6-4, 5-7, 10-6 victory followed Grigor Dimitrov's 6-1, 6-4 win over Frances Tiafoe of Team World in the opener at the United Center.

"The clay-court season is under review", Federer said ahead of the start of the Laver Cup, which began yesterday. "Saved match points. So I'm really happy to give one point to Team Europe".

The Swiss superstar comfortably dispatched a unsafe threat in Nick Kyrgios earlier in the day and Alex Zverev recorded a victory over John Isner in a nail-biter that ended 10-7 in the deciding tie-breaker, leaving Team Europe on 7 points.

Things were starting to look problematic for Team World after Kyrgios' defeat and John Isner's earlier to Zverev, but Anderson provided a timely tonic to swing some momentum.

Each match win will be worth one point on Friday, two points on Saturday, and three points on Sunday.
