Alexan­der Zverev beat Kevin An­der­son on Sun­day night in Chicago to give Team Europe a vic­tory in the sec­ond Laver Cup. Zverev won the fi­nal five points to de­feat An­der­son 6-7, 7-5, (10-7). Team Europe beat Team World 13-8. Roger Fed­erer ear­lier put Team Europe ahead by sav­ing three match points for a 6-7, 7-6 (10-7) vic­tory over John Is­ner. Is­ner stag­gered Fed­erer with a body serve that caused the 20-time Grand Slam win­ner to stum­ble early in the match. But Fed­erer re­grouped. In the open­ing dou­bles match, Jack Sock and Is­ner saved two match points to beat Fed­erer and Zverev 4-6, 7-6, (11-9). Team Europe won the first Laver Cup last year in Prague.
