As he defeated Stefanos Tsitsipas on Sunday, Frances Tiafoe saved four match points to give Team World its first win over Team Europe in the Laver Cup.

With a thrilling triumph, the American, who on Friday defeated Roger Federer in the Swiss legend’s final competitive match, once again exposed the flaws in Europe’s system.

Despite being outplayed in the opening set, he came back to win games 1-6, 7-6(11), and 10-8, giving Team World an unstoppable 13-8 advantage.

Team World, who had lost the previous four team competitions, trailed 8-4 to start the day, but Felix Auger-Aliassime of Canada stunned Novak Djokovic 6-3, 7-6(3) after previously teaming up with Jack Sock to defeat Andy Murray and Matteo Berrettini 2-6, 6-3, 10-8.
