Bulgaria's Dimitrov opened the campaign for Team Europe against Team World's United States' Tiafoe on Friday in Chicago. The former hit 10 aces during his 6-1, 6-4 decimation of the latter and gave his team a 1-0 lead on the opening day.

Great Britain's Edmund made it 2-0 in favour of Europe by winning a hard-fought battle against USA's Sock. After clinching the first set 6-4, Edmund allowed his opponent to claw back as he lost the second 5-7.

In the deciding tie-breaker, Edmund maintained his cool and edged out Sock 10-6.

The third singles rubber of the day between Belgium's Goffin and Argentina's Schwartzman was a similarly hard-fought affair as the former clinched a 6-4, 4-6 [11-9] win and put Europe in the driver's seat.

In the biggest match-up of the day, Federer and Djokovic paired up for the first doubles rubber of Laver Cup 2018 to take on Team World's Kevin Anderson and Jack Sock.

However, the star duo lost 6-7(5) 6-3 (10-6) as Anderson and Sock helped Team World win their first point of the tournament  and prevent an opening day washout. 

Notably, Federer, the world number two, had paired up with numero uno Rafael Nadal for Team Europe in the inaugural edition of Laver Cup in 2017.
