Federer and Zverev looked set to give Europe a commanding 10-5 lead in the match after taking two match points in the super tiebreaker at the United Center.

Earlier Federer and Zverev had lost their doubles rubber to Isner and fellow American Jack Sock.

"I'm just happy to get the win and we defended the title", the 21-year-old Zverev said after the event.

Zverev cut a nervy figure in the doubles and it was up to Federer to restore Team Europe's advantage with a thrilling win over Isner in the singles.

Zverev had just dropped the first set to Anderson and appeared to be struggling with the big South African's serve.

"So, if you can be closer on the baseline, he won't have that time". I have been now in the States for nearly two months, so I think I didn't fight with jet lag, you know, like maybe some of the other guys on my team.

On Sunday, during the match between Alexander Zverev and Kevin Anderson, Federer was seen in a different light which inferred why he is regarded so highly in the sport. "Back there you don't have any short balls, so it's hard to stay offensive".

Why Fifa agreed to limit loan deals
Uniform restrictions on compensation for player agents and a required registration procedure have also been agreed in principle. The recommendations are expected to be ratified at the next FIFA Council meeting in Kigali, Rwanda, on October 25-26.

Team World took command in the second tiebreak winning it 7-2, to force a match tiebreak.

The win was testimony to Federer's remarkable physical conditioning.

Going into the Sunday's matches, Team Europe, consisting the likes of 2018 Wimbledon and US Open Champion Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer, led their opponents by 7-5 and required two victories to clinch the title.

"No, he helped me a lot, he gave me some tactical advice and it worked because I won the second set and then the match tie-break".

Team Europe needs another six points to retain the title they won in the inaugural competition a year ago, when three points are on the line in each of the four matches.

The next Laver Cup, which is named after Australian legend Rod Laver, will be staged in Geneva in September 2019.
