I realize this was one week ago, but having the chance to watch Roger Federer team up with Rafael Nadal in a doubles match is not something we get to watch so often even in exhibition matches.  The Laver cup is a 3 day event which took place in Prague, Czech Republic between September 22nd through the 24th. https://lavercup.com
