The 2018 edition of the competition saw Team Europe successfully defend their title by beating Team World 13-8. On day one of the Laver Cup 2018, Grigor Dimitrov, Kyle Edmund and David Goffin won their respective singles matches to give Europe a 3-0 lead, before the star pairing of Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer lost their doubles match to Kevin Anderson and Jack Sock.
On day two, the two teams split their matches with Alexander Zverev and Roger Federer winning their singles matches, Novak Djokovic losing his singles match and then Grigor Dimitrov and David Goffin going down to Nick Kyrgios and Sock.
Still armed with a two-point lead, Europe needed to win two of the four matches on the final day to lift the title while Team World needed three victories.
