Zverev brings decisive point: Team Europe wins Laver Cup

With a win against Wimbledon finalist Kevin Anderson, Germany's young tennis star Alexander Zverev picked up the deciding points at the Laver Cup in the USA and led Team Europe to the title defense.

The 21-year-old Hamburger made an exciting match against the South African and won 6: 7 (3: 7), 7: 5, 10: 7. "That was a great feeling, of course. It is something special to have made the decision. It's great that it ended like this, "said Zverev.

In the case of a win by Anderson the decision in the individual would have fallen between Wimbledon winner Novak Djokovic and the Australian Nick Kyrgios. Previously, after defending three match points, Roger Federer gave the Europeans a 6: 7 (5: 7), 7: 6 (8: 6), 10: 7 lead over American John Isner.

The tournament, named after Australian tennis legend Rod Laver, scores one point on the first day, two points on the second and three on the third.

On Instagram Zverev posted a picture with the team consisting of Federer, Djokovic, Zverev, Grigor Dimitrov, David Goffin, Kyle Edmund and Captain Borg, writing: "Every single person in this picture is special in their own way. Love my team. The #lavercup is coming home."
