There were countless unforgettable moments from the inaugural Laver Cup that took place in Prague from September 22-24 at the O2 Arena.

From Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal playing doubles together, to Team World’s US college basketball-style celebrations. Here are five of our favourite moments from the tournament.


Federer and Nadal celebrate Team Europe’s win

The moment Nadal leapt into Federer’s arms to celebrate the Swiss securing Team Europe’s win over Team World has been replayed millions of times around the world. It’s an iconic shot that will forever commemorate the Laver Cup’s first edition. Nick Kyrgios‘ getting emotional and getting consoled by his team-mates also melted our hearts.

 

Doubles tactics

One of the most appealing aspects of Laver Cup was the behind-the-scenes footage they provided. Staged or not, this conversation between Nadal, Federer, Team Europe captain Bjorn Borg and vice-captain Thomas Enqvist was gold!

 

Zverev the MC

Alexander Zverev was given the tough task of introducing Federer to the stage during the Laver Cup gala. He came up with the perfect anecdote of meeting the Swiss legend when he was just five years old. Federer’s introduction to Nadal was not too shabby either. Must-watch!

 

Bringing March Madness to the O2 Arena

The Team World bench were having the time of their life during the competition, adopting celebrations from US college basketball as they supported their team-mates during matches. There was a significantly different vibe on the sidelines for both teams and we must say we thoroughly enjoyed Team World’s shenanigans. The Tennis Channel put this perfect video together to showcase just how wild things got.

 

Coach Roger

This coaching moment between Federer and Zverev gave us a sneak peek of what Coach Roger Federer might actually look like. Suddenly we are all fans of on-court coaching. Kudos to the WTA for introducing it to their tour.
