In the inaugural Laver Cup, that saw Team Europe claim victory over Team World, the world saw the most decorated doubles side ever, as the two men with the most Grand Slam titles of all time, with 35 titles split between both of them, paired together.

These two tennis giants are ranked the top two players in men's singles, the Swiss superstar Roger Federer and the Spanish phenom Rafael Nadal.

These two men are the most decorated players of all time; the world was in for a spectacle for a lifetime seeing these two link up in doubles to take on Team World in the first ever Laver Cup trophy.

The internet fell in love with the bromance that these two seemed to develop throughout the tournament, seeing videos of pure happiness between the two after winning matches that eventually led to the title.

The two superstars were effective on the court just as they were on paper, working their way to Team Europe a sizable 9-3 lead over Team World at the end of day two.

People around the world fell in love with this doubles squad that they took to Twitter to beg the stars to remain in doubles after the tournament so they can see more of the bromance made famous over the Laver Cup weekend.

In fact, one tweet in particular was doing the rounds in the aftermath of the Laver Cup, which saw Nadal and Federer embrace each other on the court after the Swiss defeated Nick Kyrgios.

You can see that tweet below.

Of course, this tweet got a lot of interaction from Twitter users, and it's safe to say they absolutely loved it.

The two men even tweeted at each other in a playful manner that got fans all on board for this friendship that never existed before as the two were always common opponents in singles tournaments. 

Whether the two men play in doubles ever again is to be seen, but as long as the bromance of the two most decorated players of all time stays in tact, the world of tennis will still be happy.
