A sensation in Malaga. This Thursday, Italy beat the United States, a favorite with Canada, in the Davis Cup quarter-finals. However, deprived of its two best players in the ranking, Yannick Sener (15th in the world) and Matteo Berrettini (16th), Italy played a very strong blow in the USA. First, Lorenzo Sonego pulled out all the stops against Frances Tiafoe in the singles. The Italian won in two sets (6-3, 7-6) and took two hours to launch his team perfectly.
Shortly after noon, Italy ended up ending the American adventure in the Davis Cup during the doubles match between Fabio Fognini – Simone Polelli (Italy) and Jack Sock – Tommy Ball (USA). The Europeans won in 2 sets (6-4, 6-4) and 1h 19 of play, against opponents who were not at all accustomed, to find extenuating circumstances for them, to play together. Finally, it was only Fritz who would present the honor to the United States on Thursday. The player who was knocked out in the semi-finals of the Turin Masters, in vain defeated the young talent Musetti (7-6, 6-3). In the semi-finals, Italy will face Canada or Germany.
