Djokovic hits Federer, pair lose in doubles at Laver Cup

The Serbian and Swiss both laughed off the incident to the amusement of the crowd and although they went on to win the first set, they eventually lost the match to Jack Sock and Kevin Anderson 6-7 (5-7) 6-3 (10-6).

Novak Djokovic accidentally struck Roger Federer with a forehand as the doubles team were beaten at the Laver Cup on Friday.

The doubles game followed three singles matches earlier in the day - Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov putting the first point on the board for Europe after beating Frances Tiafoe 6-1 6-4.

'Jack is maybe the world's best doubles player right now.

This is the second installment of the Laver Cup, which has been dubbed the Ryder Cup of tennis although it lacks the tradition of golf's premier team event.

But their opponents soon found their rhythm, taking the second set 6-3, with Sock's experience as a three-time doubles major champion shining through on some impressive volley shots and Anderson displaying a strong serve.

The milk will be available in Queensland, New South Wales, ACT and Victoria from mid-October "to help provide short-term relief". Woolworths Director of Fresh Food Paul Harker said he's proud to be supporting dairy farmers "through this hard time".

The format calls for shorter matches. On Saturday, wins will be worth two points each instead of one.

Dimitrov used his precision backhand to keep Tiafoe off balance as he closed out the match with his 10th and final ace.

"It's pretty nice to play indoors - no sun, no wind", Dimitrov said.

Bjorn Borg's favored Team Europe are trying to defend their crown against Team World which is captained by the legendary John McEnroe.

Novak Djokovic is a fun man and he is known for keeping it simple and enjoying his time on the court and on Saturday, he pulled off the flawless "fun" moment during a Laver Cup tie in Chicago.

On day two, Team Europe's Alexander Zverev, Federer and Djokovic will face John Isner, Nick Kyrgios and Anderson in the singles before Goffin and Dimitrov team up to face Sock and Kyrgios in the doubles.
