LONDON (AP) — Frances Tiafoe has saved four match points to beat Stefanos Tsitsipas 1-6, 7-6 (11), 10-8 and clinched victory in the Laver Cup for Team World over Roger Federer’s Team Europe for the first time. Tiafoe performed Sunday with the same crunch-time success and wide-smiling showmanship he displayed en route to his first Grand Slam semifinal at the U.S. Open this month.
