Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal lost in doubles at the Laver Cup to Frances Tiafoe and Jack Sock in a final tiebreaker. The final result was 4-6, 7-6 (2), (11-9).

It wasn’t not the first time Rafa and Roger were on the same side of the court: they won a doubles match together in the first edition of the Laver Cup back in 2017. 

They’ve met a total of 40 times in singles (with Rafa winning 26), including 14 times at grand slam tournaments (with our champ winning 10), none more memorable than their epochal showdown in the 2008 Wimbledon final.
