Sep 23, 2023 08:58 PM IST

Here is the entire schedule and order of play for Day 2 of Laver Cup 2023…

Team World scripted a stunning start to their title-defense campaign in Vancouver on Friday as they won all the four ties against Team Europe at the Rogers Arena. Recent US Open semifinalist Ben Shelton’s 7-6 (4), 6-1 win over Arthur Fils marked the first time that Team World won the opening match in a Laver Cup edition. This was followed by Francisco Cerundolo's 6-3, 7-5 win over Alejandro Davidovich-Fokina while Felix Auger-Aliassime defeated Gael Monfils 6-4, 6-3. And in the solitary doubles match, the Team World pair of Tommy Paul and Frances Tiafoe beat Fills and Andrey Rublev to help the 2022 champions take a 4-0 lead in the contest.

“It felt nice,” said Auger-Aliassime, who improved to 3-2 in Laver Cup singles matches with his win. “Last year, it was an amazing win in London, but if we can win on home soil for the first time, that would also be cool. It was our first win last year for Team World.

“To do it with the crowd, with us and supporting us, and for me especially as a Canadian, it feels good. Feels good to get a first win under my belt here in the competition, and overall in my season I think it's nice to get some wins.”
