    I'd seen players with those "Laver Cup" hats on.

    I was vaguely aware that it was on this weekend, when I scanned Tennis Channel.

    I just read about it now.

    Seems pretty cool.

    Good job Isner, he beat Nadal to set up the "winner takes it" match between FED and Krygios.

    FED and Nadal played doubles and lost a set 6-1 to Sock and Querrey, lol. They won the match though.

    Tennis Channel is re-airing the Laver Cup over the next few days.

    I'm going to record it. I want to see what it looked like for Nadal and FED to play doubles.

    I watched the Doubles match yesterday partially on the DVR, partially on YouTube.

    The doubles match was fun. You can hear what the players are saying to each other, very clearly, during the changeovers.

    They said during the broadcast they used 44 camera for the court, which is more than any major at any event.

    They had a "net cam", which they'd sometimes switch to.

    Seeing FED and Nadal play doubles together was worth it. It's pretty cool to see an event where I don't care who wins and loses as much. So I can just focus on the entertainment of the tennis.
