"You were doing so well" on-court interviewer Tim Henman says to De Minaur.

To be honest, I thought both of them Fed and Nadal look pretty pathetic crying, though the two worst cryers I've ever seen are Pat Butcher and Ian Beale, off the cringe o'metre scale.

Nadal is a strange one, he's never really been emotional during his career that I can think of, even when he's lost slam finals, especially the epic v Novak in Australia, so it comes across as a bit manufactured, same with his over the top celebrations the first time I saw this event, really weird, wonder if his being prompted from behind the scenes from sponsors to grow this event with clickbait moments like that.

Re Mirka, she is a bit of a milf, but let's be honest, all the women Roger could have had over the years, he has missed out.

It will be a year until I can seethe about Laver Cup, but I hate this event. If it was just advertised as an exho I would not have a problem with it, but with people treating it a big deal (thankfully not you phorumites, 0 posts on final day Love) it really annoys me. Sadly, because it had some real moments this year, Federer's last match and Rafa's tears, amongst all the fakery, it will boost the credibility of the event, and Team World winning might help with that as well. However I think interest will fade away with Federer no longer being an active player. Unless Team World steps up over the next years and this becomes competitive, then it has a chance.
