Kyrgios shares what usually happens when he faces Federer, Nadal in doubles

One of the best moments for Nick Kyrgios at the Laver Cup in Geneva was the doubles match on Saturday with Jack Sock against Rafael Nadal and Stefanos Tsitsipas. The Australian player said: "When you're playing Roger or Rafa in doubles, the other person is usually the weaker point.

But I thought me and Jack came out strong. We played really, really well. Stefanos returned well. I thought he played well today. Honestly, he served well. Especially to Jack, I thought he served well. Yeah, I mean, he was solid. His returns were going in.

I thought it was a high-quality doubles match. Me and Jack, obviously we have played three times and haven't lost. Our chemistry is pretty high." Nadal added: "Honestly, we were close. Even if the score was 9-4 at some point, between 4-All and 8-4, we lost a couple of points that could go both ways.

No, no, I think we played with the right intensity. We played with the right energy that moments. Just we have good players in front that they want to win, too, and they are good. They are talented. They know how to play doubles.

That's it. Just congratulate them." Europe defended its title against World after Alexander Zverev won against Milos Raonic in the final singles match on Sunday. Earlier, Dominic Thiem and the doubles team of Federer-Tsitsipas lost their respective matches.

Federer defeated John Isner in the second singles match to put Europe in contention for the title, again after World had taken a lead for the first time in the tournament's history.
