    The video is hilarious because Borg didn’t say a word, Roger was talking in English while Rafa kept interjecting in Spanish and Fognini was answering in Italian.

    Weird choices about what to show us. Instead of showing all of the teammates hugging Fed & their celebration, the camera pans to the crowd in a darkened stadium.

    Here the broadcast by

    is just LAME. Barely seeing the Team Europe Bench, all for Team World even when there is nothing to see. And that choice of filming the public at this moment was stupid.

    Rafa pulled out of his scheduled match with Kyrgios with a hand injury, then Kyrgios pulled out of the re-scheduled match against Thiem with a bad shoulder! So it’s now Thiem vs Fritz

    So, this exhibition will come down to jack Sock vs RBA.
    Might as well bring out the Ice Capades at halftime.

    I liked that clip. It tells you so much about Roger and Rafa's mindset when they play.

    Did you catch that Tsitsipas was the first one to reach and hug Alex after he won

    One of my favourite parts of the weekend was when Nadal was playing doubles with Tsitsipas...
    I was noticing that Tsitsipas was giving hand signals behind his back when Nadal was serving - a typical doubles thing... and I saw that most of the time, Nadal wasn’t even looking at the hand signals before he served.

    That eventually led to this exchange between the two on a changeover...
    Nadal, laughing: “I have no idea what your hand signals mean.”
    Tsitsipas then tries to explain his overly complicated hand signals.
    Nadal interrupts and says “Ok, it's simple, ok? This (he shows a fist) means you stay - you don’t move. And if you show a finger - ANY finger - it means you move. Ok?”

    As questionable as the tennis often is during this exhibition, it does reveal elements of the players' characters and personalities that we otherwise rarely witness.
    * Yes, it's me (last seen on TW boards in 2009).

    I ended up watching. And the main take away was:
    The two most intense players in the series were Roger and Rafa. And this was and still is an exo.
    Kind of tells you why they have 20 and 19 slams.

    Laver Cup was really fun entertainment, and it would be even better if Team World contributed to the fun at all. But I still come away with: Zverev, a probable new Team 8 client, gets the hero spot and possibly the confidence he needs to get his career back on track. Ups his profile and his potential of winning, both of which will make Team 8 money. Total coincidence? Impossible to avoid the bad optics of that.
