LONDON (AP) — Frances Tiafoe has saved four match points to beat Stefanos Tsitsipas 1-6, 7-6 (11), 10-8 and clinched victory in the Laver Cup for Team World over Roger Federer’s Team Europe for the first time. Tiafoe performed Sunday with the same crunch-time success and wide-smiling showmanship he displayed en route to his first Grand Slam semifinal at the U.S. Open this month. The victory over 2021 French Open runner-up Tsitsipas allowed the group of 20-somethings on Team World to take three-day competition against Team Europe, which featured Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray.
