Roger Federer edged out Team World's Nick Kyrgios to claim victory for a talented Team Europe side that saw them take home the inaugural trophy.
After first falling behind to Kyrgios 6-4 in the first set, Federer fought back to then make it 7-6 before claiming overall victory for his side with a final score of 15-9 against his Team World counterpart.
The experienced Swiss spoke of his experience with Team Europe and the future value of the tournament, saying: "It’s been an amazing and fun week and I’m just so proud the event worked as well as it did.
“The camaraderie as you saw was amazing also and only time will tell how big the Laver Cup will become.
“The first one is officially over and I can’t wait to get my hands on the trophy.”
The story could have been much different had Kyrgios claimed victory over Federer, as the deciding event would have been doubles, an event Federer did not have high hopes for against Team World.
“They made us work so incredibly hard and I can only congratulate them,” the Swiss added.
“They could have been in, in the final doubles, they were maybe the better doubles team this week.
“They had the better chance and the better moves but in the end Team Europe got it done so I am very happy.”
A jubilant Federer celebrated with his Team Europe side in style as they took home the very first Laver Cup trophy, a tournament that will live on in the future.
The celebrations of the team were made famous by a tweet that mocked the celebrations by putting it in slow motion while playing the Titanic song in the background.
The tweet was well-received by the followers of the editor of the tweet as it has thousands of retweets and likes, while also drawing many responses of laughter from his broad Twitter audience.

It was enjoyed so much that some people even went to great lengths to create their own renditions of the celebration scene.
While the sole intent of the tweet was to create laughter amongst a Twitter audience, the video does capture the joy and jubilation of Team Europe having won an inaugural trophy for an entire continent in one of the continent's most popular sports.
