In later matches on Saturday, Novak Djokovic faces Kevin Anderson, while Europe doubles pairing Grigor Dimitrov and David Goffin complete the schedule against the World team's Jack Sock and Kyrgios.

"I felt good from the beginning and that's not usual", Federer said.

Federer and Djokovic were taking on Kevin Anderson and Jack Sock when the Serbian did something, well, embarrassing.

Earlier in the day, Europe's Dimitrov cruised past Frances Tiafoe 6-1, 6-4, Goffin saved two match points to outlast Diego Schwartzman 6-4, 4-6, 11-9 and Edmund toppled World's Sock 6-4, 5-7, 10-6.

Maestro: Roger Federer has again proven too strong for Australia's Nick Kyrgios.

The 20-year-old American put up more of a battle in the second set, but the former World No.3 benefited from his experience, and took the second set as well.

This is the second installment of the Laver Cup, which has been dubbed the Ryder Cup of tennis although it lacks the tradition of golf's premier team event.

Team Europe hold a 7-5 lead over Team World before the final day's action at the Laver Cup.

The format calls for shorter matches.

After the game, the duo sat on the bench during the break and had a light time discussing the moment and Federer was quick to say that this is why they don't play doubles as both laughed it off. If the players split sets, they go straight to a 10-point tiebreaker.

After dominating Friday's opening day, winning three out of the four matches, Europe's progress looked to be checked after Isner grabbed the first set against Zverev.

The world No.3 Serb fought back to break Anderson at 5-5 in the second set and served it out to level the score but he but could not get the job done in the third-set tiebreaker.

That prompted vocal protests from Kyrgios, who branded the decision a "shit judgement", while Team World captain John McEnroe tongue-in-cheek commented he hoped the umpire would "get a little present after the match".
