Geneva | Sock & Kyrgios keep Team World in contention.

Jack Sock and Nick Kyrgios paired up to defeat Rafael Nadal and Stefanos Tsitsipas as Team World to keep in touch with Team Europe who take a 7-5 lead into Sunday’s final day of the third Laver Cup in Geneva.

I thought it was a high-quality match and we're definitely happy to get the win. Jack Sock

Sock and Kyrgios won Saturday’s doubles 6-4 3-6 10-6 after Nadal defeated Milos Raonic in the singles, his first match since conquering the US Open for a fourth time.

“There was a lot on the line there,” said Sock. “We obviously wanted to keep the overall weekend close. Being down 9-3 is different than 7-5.

“We’ve had so many chances this weekend, it’s been crazy, so I think the score could be the other way around.

“I thought it was a high-quality match and we’re definitely happy to get the win.”

Nadal, who won his 19th Grand Slam title in New York, had earlier overcome Canada’s Raonic 6-3 7-6(1) after defending eight break points in the first set.

“I feel very lucky,” said Nadal. “I think he deserved that first set for sure. Later in the match I think I started to play a little bit better.”

Roger Federer, playing in front of a partisan home crowd, beat Australian Kyrgios 6-7(5) 7-5 10-7 to the delight of the 17,000-strong packed auditorium.

“The crowd could feel it; I could feel it. I needed to get some energy going but you can’t do that if you don’t play any good shots and Nick was playing very well,” said Federer, the 20-time Grand Slam champion.

“I was just trying to stay focused. If you can turn the momentum, the crowd gets back into it and I need some earplugs next time, it was just phenomenal.”

Bjorn Borg’s holders had seen Team World draw level with John Isner’s victory over Zverev.

Isner fought back from a set down to beat Zverev 6-7(2) 6-4, 10-1 and haul Team World level at 3-3 after Team Europe led by two points following the opening day’s play.

The scoring system sees one point awarded for each win on the first day, two points given for each victory on the second day, and three points on offer in each match on Sunday’s final day.
