  • Europe leads Laver Cup despite shock defeat for star duo

Yet it was the sight of Djokovic and Federer teaming up in a doubles match against Kevin Anderson and Jack Sock that set pulses racing, with the pair that have won a stunning 34 Grand Slam titles between them appearing too have a great chemistry on court. Last time around, he won the first doubles match with Rafael Nadal but this time, his pairing with Djokovic didn't pay dividends. The match also a hilarious moment play out between them when Djokovic accidentally struck the ball on Federer's waist.

But their opponents soon found their rhythm, taking the second set 6-3, with Sock's experience as a three-time doubles major champion shining through on some impressive volley shots and Anderson displaying a strong serve.

The current Wimbledon and US Open champion was quick to see the amusing side, however, and immediately rushed to Federer's aid before giving him a hearty rub on the back to make amends.

Britain's Kyle Edmund, a Laver Cup debutant, claimed an impressive 6-4 5-7 10-6 win over Sock and match three saw Belgium's David Goffin add to Europe's advantage as he beat Argentina's Diego Schwartzman 6-4 4-6 11-9.

Le Suisse a ainsi obtenu deux de ses breaks à sa troisième balle, au 6e jeu de la manche initiale et au 3e du second set. Il a passé 69% de premières balles et a fait le point dans 71% des cas sur son premier et son deuxième service.

On day two, Team Europe's Alexander Zverev, Federer and Djokovic will face John Isner, Nick Kyrgios and Anderson in the singles before Goffin and Dimitrov team up to face Sock and Kyrgios in the doubles.

"That's why we don't play doubles, right?" Federer and Djokovic eventually lost the match 7-6, 3-6, (10-6).

This is the second instalment of the Laver Cup which has been dubbed the Ryder Cup of tennis - although it lacks the tradition of golf's premier team event. Federer said to Djokovic during a break between games.

Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic looked quite comfortable while playing together for the first time Friday night.
