Former tennis player Adriano Panatta has expressed how disrespectful Tayafo and Sock were for their behavior at the Laver Cup.
The Italian former player was disgusted by what he saw from the Americans who labeled them sloppy in the way they performed that match. This was the last match of Roger Federer’s career and saw Sock and Tiafoe beat Nadal and him.
“They were evil, the two Americans constantly threw their full force in front of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. It was disrespectful and they only did it because they couldn’t do anything else. They are tennis troglodytes, but above all, villains of two tennis championships that made the history of this sport.
“I thought, ‘God, why don’t you give me a chance to stand on the court and do it like I did when I was 25?’
