1-1 between Italy and Brazil after the first two United Cup matches

Tied situation between Italy and Brazil after the first two matches of the United Cup, the tournament with mixed national lineups underway in Australia. In Brisbane, world number 27 Martina Trevisan surrendered decisively in two sets (6-2, 6-0) against Beatriz Haddad Maia, number 15 in the WTA rankings.

The Italian number one’s defeat was redeemed shortly thereafter by Musetti, who lived up to the odds and bent world number 166 Felipe Meligeni Alves in two sets 6-3, 6-4.

On Friday it will be the turn of Matteo Berrettini, playing against Thiago Monteiro, and Lucia Bronzetti, who will face Laura Pigossi. Then there will be the eventual mixed doubles that could decide the confrontation.
