World number 6 Stefanos Tsitsipas boosted Team Europe’s lead in the Laver Cup on Friday when he delivered a grueling performance to send off Team World’s Diego Schwartzman 6-2 6-1.
In front of a crowd at The O2, the Greek seemed in control from the first point, overcoming the Argentine with a brutal forehand to take his side to a 2-0 lead against Team World.

Tsitsipas scored 17 winning goals and made only six negative fouls to claim victory after 77 minutes. The 24-year-old won all three matches he played in the Laver Cup, while improving to 4-2 in the ATP series head-to-head against Schwartzman.
Earlier, in the first game, Casper Rudd ensured Team Europe would make a successful start, beating Jack Sock of Team World 6-4, 5-7, 10-7.
The world No. 2 seed has won eight of his nine matches after qualifying for his second Grand Slam final at the US Open earlier this month.
