ATP roundup: Team Europe dominates Laver Cup
9/26/2021 5:27:00 PM EST
Team Europe completed a lopsided 14-1 victory Sunday against Team World to win the Laver Cup competition at TD Garden in Boston.
Russia's Andrey Rublev and Germany's Alexander Zverev clinched the triumph with a 6-2, 6-7 (4), 10-3 win in doubles against American Reilly Opelka and Denis Shapovalov of Canada.
Team Europe has won the first four editions of the three-day event. The Europeans' only loss came in doubles on Friday night when John Isner of the U.S. and Shapovalov beat Zverev and Italy's Matteo Berrettini 4-6, 7-6 (2), 10-1.
No. 1 seed Hubert Hurkacz of Poland defeated No. 2 Pablo Carreno Busta of Spain 7-6 (2), 6-3 to win his third ATP Tour title of the season in Metz, France.
Hurkacz, who did not drop a set all week, struck nine aces and converted four of his six break chances in the 82-minute final.
Including his titles earlier this season at Delray Beach and Miami, the 24-year-old Hurkacz holds a 4-0 record in ATP Tour finals.
South Korea's Soonwoo Kwon captured his first ATP Tour title with a 7-6 (6), 6-3 victory against Australian James Duckworth in Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan.
Kwon, 23, defeated three seeded players en route to the trophy and became just the second South Korean man to win a tour-level title in the Open Era, joining 2003 Sydney champion Hyung-Taik Lee.
Kwon saved three set points in the opening-set tiebreak before breaking Duckworth's serve twice in the second set to win in one hour and 38 minutes.
