The Greek triumphed 6-2 1-6 10-7 over Taylor Fritz in a thrilling contest, after Sock's win against world number 11 Fabio Fognini had cancelled out Dominic Thiem's earlier victory.

On Sunday Team Europe needed a win in the final game of the Laver Cup against the Rest of the World to secure a third title in a row. The hard-court tournament, played two weeks after the U.S. Open, was founded to honor tennis legend Rod Laver.

"I thought it was a high quality match and we're definitely happy to get the win". Rafael Nadal enters the stage for Europe in an evening singles match against Milos Raonic, then stays on to partner with Tsitsipas against Kyrgios and Sock. "And how they were on the bench and how everybody was on the bench was an unbelievable feeling for me to win in the end".

Borg's Europe have now won the title in each of the three years the team event has been staged.

Once again the Laver Cup had provided rich entertainment in front of huge crowds, full of interesting distractions such as the players coaching each other, sometimes in slightly hammed-up fashion, on the sidelines.

Swiss tennis great Roger Federer has claimed that there is nothing like playing in Switzerland for him.

"He was talking about it last night", Team World captain John McEnroe said.

The 20-time Grand Slam champion, who won his first match alongside Alexander Zverev in Friday's doubles tie, beat Australian Kyrgios 6-7 (5/7), 7-5, 10-7 to the delight of his home crowd.

"I'm thrilled that I was able to give something back to the team", said Federer.

Europe, who have won the prior two editions of the competition, lead 7-5 heading into the final day, but they might have had one hand on the trophy already if not for Kyrgios.

The European team also won the first two Laver Cup editions, played in 2017 in Prague and past year in Chicago.

Kyrgios bounced back from a tough defeat to Federer to keep Team World in the mix for a breakthrough Laver Cup victory in a doubles success alongside Jack Sock.
