Roger Federer leaves Alexander Zverev confused from the stands at Laver Cup

2 mins read

Having blown break point chances before ultimately losing the second set, Zverev was able to narrowly clinch the victory and give Team Europe a seven-points-to-one lead over Team World, following a dramatic 7-6(5) 6-7(6) 10-5 battle.

After the match, he was interviewed by Jim Courier on court, who noted that there was a moment late in the second set where all of his team-mates gathered around the bench to coach him and give him advice after missing the chance to close out the match.

The 23-year-old then revealed that, while the likes of Medvedev, Rublev and Tsitsipas had been giving him advice from the players’ bench, Federer was also giving him tactical suggestions from his front-row seat in the stands at the baseline.

I mean my entire team was telling me to step back on the returns then Roger is behind me telling me to step in on the return so then I was confused,” the German said on court.
