Singles wins for Alexander Zverev and Roger Federer - over John Isner and Nick Kyrgios respectively - earlier in the day had Team Europe firmly in control, as they took a 7-1 lead before the evening matches.

American duo John Isner and Jack Sock fought off two match points to defeat Zverev and world number two Roger Federer in a gripping doubles battle.

"We've had some really close matches haven't gone our way and I really wanted to put us back in there", Anderson, who lost the Wimbledon final to Djokovic earlier this year, told reporters.

There are three singles and one doubles on each day of the event, over five sessions.

The second set was a similarly cagey affair, going with serve for the first ten games - then Sock broke Edmund, who was playing his first match since his US Open defeat to Paolo Lorenzi, and held his own to take it 7-5 and force a third-set tie-break.

Both singles and doubles are best-of-three sets with ad scoring.

Team Europe had been hoping for a clean sweep on the tournament's first day but will head into day two with a 3-1 lead.

If points are 12-all on Day 3, a doubles set with a tiebreaker will decide the Laver Cup champion. "This is not an exhibition at all; at all".
