Laver Cup. It's legit.

At least that's the overarching takeaway from a super-competitive, captivating weekend of tennis featuring the top stars from Europe against those from the rest of the world.

Did we mention it was competitive? Here's how things played out:

It all came down to Zverev for Team Europe

Team Europe held on to the slimmest of margins with Alexander Zverev on the court with the chance to clinch the title against Kevin Anderson. After dropping the first set, Zverev broke his opponent in the second, then won a thrilling super-tiebreaker to seal the deal. Huzzah!

He can play, he can coach. He's Roger Federer

Mirka and Jelena impressed

Big congrats to Team Europe for winning the 2018 Laver Cup

Let's party, baby!
