Laver Cup: Team World Overwhelms Team Europe to Secure Trophy Retention

Team World delivered a resounding 13-2 victory over Team Europe, securing the Laver Cup for the second consecutive year in Vancouver.

In the doubles match, Americans Ben Shelton and Frances Tiafoe emerged victorious against the duo of Poland’s Hubert Hurkacz and Russia’s Andrey Rublev with a scoreline of 7-6 (7-4), 7-6 (7-5), sealing their triumphant performance.

Team World dominated the tournament and only needed to win the doubles match to secure the trophy.

Norwegian Casper Ruud’s win over American Tommy Paul on Saturday sealed Europe’s only points.

With the winner being the first team to reach 13 points, Team World were on track after day one having won all four matches before Americans Taylor Fritz and Tiafoe both won in straight sets on Saturday and Felix Auger-Aliassime, of Canada, and Shelton added a doubles win to carry a 10-2 lead into the final day.

“We stepped up and I thought all the guys played great,” said Team World captain John McEnroe.

“This was a special year for us. I know they’re going to come back strong but I’ll take two in a row any day. And I’m starting to think is it possible for three in a row!”

Shelton, 20, knocked compatriot Tiafoe out of the US Open earlier this month, reaching the semi-final and rising to 19th in the world rankings, but the pair worked well as a partnership, coming from behind in both tie-breaks in a dramatic win.

“It was very special being part of that last year – it was so emotional for being my first time. Now with Ben it’s a lot of fun,” Tiafoe said.

Shelton said: “It’s been crazy for me. I enjoyed being in a team environment, they did a great job cheering me on all week and I hope I did a good job cheering them on as well.”

Team Europe had triumphed in the initial four editions of the competition, but their streak came to a halt in London the previous year when Team World emerged victorious. This tournament also served as a significant milestone, marking the conclusion of Roger Federer’s illustrious career.
