It’s time for the Laver Cup 2021, and the tournament is now featuring some world-class tennis. It’s the third day of the tennis tournament, and the doubles match between Team Europe’s Alexander Zverev and Andrey Rublev and Team World’s Reilly Opelka and Denis Shapovalov produced an unusual situation.
When Alexander Zverev became irritated after dropping a point in the second set of the match, an incident occurred. He became so enraged that the German threw aside his tennis racquet in frustration.

When Zverev violently hurled his racket, fans at the TD Garden in Boston began to boo him. They were irritated by his gesture and, moreover, by the fact that their hometown hero, Opelka, was losing the match.
Another likely reason for the crowd’s hostile attitude towards Zverev is that he is a major fan of the Miami Heats, an American football team. As a result, he was met with a nasty reception from Boston fans.
Team Europe close to winning the Laver Cup 2021
Team Europe had already accumulated 11 points before the end of the second day of the competition. As a result, they are only two points away from defending their championship.
Even if Team Europe only wins one of the four matches on the third day of competition, they will take home the Laver Cup 2021. Team World of John McEnroe, on the other hand, needs to win all four matches today in order to survive and win the title.
Team Europe is currently on the verge of winning the Laver Cup for the second time.
