Rafael Nadal defeated Milos Raonic in his first match since his US Open triumph to hand Europe a 7-3 lead after the singles ties on the second day of the Laver Cup in Geneva on Saturday. He overcame Canada’s Raonic 6-3, 7-6 (7/1) after Roger Federer edged out Nick Kyrgios in a super tie-break, leaving Europe well positioned for a third victory in as many editions over Team World.
Our champ was asked who was the better coach between him and Federer and he joked:
Oh yeah, I’m much better.
No, I think it is a great thing that everybody helps each other. And it is a great team spirit. That is why we were able to achieve the previous two Laver Cups.
Remains a lot of work to do so we need to be together. We need to help each other and we have a great coaches in Bjorn and Thomas. And the rest of the team is supporting.
Highlights: Nadal vs Raonic
OMG. This is pure gold!
