Alexander Zverev praised Rafael Nadal for supporting him and the whole Team Europe at the Laver Cup during the whole week. The German said: "Rafa is probably the one that gives the most energy on the bench. I mean, he's really acting like he's playing himself, and that gives you great confidence.
As I said today after the match in doubles, I had two guys that were supporting me like crazy, and that's why I think I played very well in doubles, as well. Roger obviously by my side playing with me, and then Rafa on the bench in important moments.
You know, you can kind of give him a look or kind of try to take something out of him, and he's the one that gives you the most, I think, on our team." On his fitness condition, Roger Federer, who played four matches last week, added: "I feel really good.
I was able to recover. It was really good that I lost early at the US Open. Gave me more time for the Laver Cup. Great for Laver Cup. It's great. I was so happy after I lost (smiling). No. That's how it goes. You've got to make the most of it. I had a great family time. My back recovered."
