While the story of the weekend was the retirement of Roger Federer, in the backdrop Team World collected its first Laver Cup title sweeping all three Sunday matches to stun Team Europe 13-8.

It marks the first time that Team World has won the event since its inception in 2017.

The World went into Sunday trailing 8-4. But with each win worth three points, it was easy to make up ground as long as World won. And they did.

Felix Auger-Aliassime starred on the day winning both his matches (6 total points) taking the doubles with Jack Sock topping Matteo Berrettini and Andy Murray.

He then put the World ahead with a surprising win over Novak Djokovic 6-3, 7-6(3).

US Open semifinal Frances Tiafoe clinched the win upending Stefanos Tsitsipas 1-6, 7-6(11), 10-8 saving four match points in the victory.

The finale between Taylor Fritz and Cameron Norrie was left unplayed as the event had been decided.

The event will move to Vancouver, Canada, next year.
