Italy, led by Matteo Berrettini and Jannick Sener, qualified for the Davis Cup

We are all, in our own way, Roger Federer fans, and the day after announcing his retirement, that feeling doesn’t pass: the certainty that someone like him won’t exist anymore. In our minds, thoughts of long afternoons gush before his exploits, of times when he seemed to us the only tennis player we could really cheer: the best and most elegant of all, in the men’s arena where his countrymen, in heads, there was no shadow. Federer’s orphans, however, we can turn the page in peace: because tennis has rediscovered new champions, and because among them, and this is the best news, there are also two Italians.

Those who are not interested in the times of Banata, Bertolucci and Barazzotti find themselves in a completely new and exciting situation: experience the thrill of cheerleading for two Italians who are not only technically prepared but also two good men, and that never hurts, but who can concretely aspire to victory in the most prestigious and most prestigious tournaments Follow in the world. When Matteo Berrettini broke the 44-year fast without an Italian in a Grand Slam final, it looked like an extraordinary event, a pass for a comet so rare. Instead, both he and Janek Sener are, today, among the most relied upon, respected, and feared tennis players on the ring. Above all, he is able to rewrite the history of Italian tennis.

After some uncertainty in Davis’ first match against Coric, which he won in three sets anyway, he found his best against Baez Berrettini: It took an hour and eleven minutes of play to top the world number 37. The Roman’s advantage was already evident in the second game, when he broke his opponent’s serve and from there he had no problems managing the group advantage, also thanks to another break. The scenario was also respected in the second set, when the first half reached 3-2: Blue immediately established itself as the master of the game and led the match as it pleased. After all, if there was a statistic confirming the absolute calm with which Berrettini organized his opponent, then the number of break points allowed would be: zero.
