"Amazing comeback" - Federer praises Team World after Laver Cup win

Roger Federer praised Team World for a superb comeback after they won 3 matches to turn around a 4-8 deficit after day two into a 13-8 win on the final day.

The final day saw Jack Sock and Felix Auger-Aliassime defeat Andy Murray and Matteo Berrettini in a thrilling 3-setter. After that, we saw Auger-Aliassime stun Novak Djokovic in two sets to put Team World ahead for the first time in the event.

The next match saw Tiafoe take on Tsitsipas and the American dropped the opening set 6-1 only to come back and win the next two. He saved four match points in the second set to force a decider where he proved better.

Speaking after the event, Federer said:

"Congratulations to Team World, amazing comeback. I was very confident going into today but well done Johnny Mac [John McEnroe] and the rest of the team for incredible play today, you deserve it."

Federer added:

"My team has been fantastic, I've enjoyed every minute. It's been great, it's been a little bit emotional at times. But I recovered, the team has recovered; I hope I didn't make the team lose, but I had a wonderful time and I can't thank you enough for that."

He also touched upon next year explaining:

"I'm looking forward to next year [in Vancouver], I'll be there too and supporting both teams from a different position. Thanks to Rod Laver, your presence means everything to us players so we can go cross-generations and inspire the next generation of young players coming through. And thanks to all the fans - you made my weekend incredible."
