Twitter overjoys as rivals Roger Federer & Rafael Nadal team up for the first time overjoys as rivals Roger Federer & Rafael Nadal team up for the first time

The world of tennis stopped for 81 minutes to watch Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal unite for the first time on a doubles court. This was the sport’s equivalent of a solar eclipse.

In the words of Tomas Berdych, one of the lesser lights on the European Laver Cup team: “Everyone was waiting for this moment since they announced this event is going to happen. This is the time. So I think it’s almost like a celebration of tennis.”

Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer joined forces to win a doubles match in the new Laver Cup on Saturday.

They teamed up for the first time to defeat Sam Querrey and Jack Sock 6-4, 1-6, 10-5 in the team event between Europe and the rest of the world.

“It was unbelievable,” Nadal said.

The inaugural Laver Cup is at Prague’s O2 Arena on an unusual black hard court.

This is how twitter reacted to this historical moment :

The newly-minted competition — named after Australian tennis legend Rod Laver — an attempt to transplant the tension and intercontinental challenge of golf’s Ryder Cup to the tennis world, kicked off this weekend in Prague.

The competition itself has been a bit one-sided, with Team Europe leading Team World 9-3 after day two of the three-day event, which involves a series of singles and doubles matches.

Each match is worth one point on day one, two points on day two and three points on day three.

 Team Europe is a hot favourite, needing to reach 13 points on the third and final day to clinch victory in the event.
