Musetti in place of Sinner

The captain of the Italian national team, Filippo Volandri, had already spoken about a minor injury that affected Jannik Sinner during the Us Open. The South Tyrolean tennis player, however, seemed to be able to recover to play the first match of the Davis Cup group A, a competition in which he is still undefeated, in singles. Instead, the San Candido tennis player will sit on the bench against Croatia, according to a report in Gazzetta dello Sport.

Matteo Berrettini thus becomes the number one of our national team and will face Borna Coric, number 26 in the ATP ranking. Musetti, on the other hand, will face Borna Gojo, world number 164 and Lorenzo Sonego’s executioner, in the quarterfinals of the last Davis Cup, in Turin. It should be mentioned that the Croatians are also without their number one, Marin Cilic, who is out of action due to physical problems.
