How many emotions at the Laver Cup 2021, starring – and how could it not be, despite not being on the court! – Roger Federer. The Swiss Maestro was not on the court for the tennis event that sees the Europa team, led by Bjorn Borg and the World team, led by John McEnroe, face off, but the forty-year-old from Basel was in the front row in the stands of the TD Garden in Boston .
When Roger Federer was directed by the director, the crowd in the stands gave the 20-time Slam champion an unforgettable and emotional standing ovation.
Matteo Berrettini won the first point for team Europe, beating Felix Auger-Aliassime.
After the match, the Italian said: “A very tough battle against a great friend. Beautiful atmosphere, I enjoyed every minute out there, and this was the best way to start the competition with Bjorn by my side. To be called up for the Laver Cup.
it was one of my goals this year, I’m very happy to be here, it’s very nice to be able to play not only for yourself but also for the team. “
