when Italy plays and where to see it. The guide to the new formula- Corriere.it

from Marco Calabresi

On Friday and Saturday the Azzurri were led with Sinner as leader without Berrettini. Three cities are involved: Madrid, Innsbruck (without public) and Turin which hosts Italy. It is played best of three games

The PalaAlpitour has changed color. From the blue of the Atp Finals to the green of the Davis Cup, which – as happened in 2019 – they will play with the new group stage formula wanted by Kosmos of Gerard Piqu. If two years ago the site was unique (the Caja Magica in Madrid) and the controversies were enormous for the timing of the matches, many of which ended late at night, this time the first phase will be played in three different cities: Turin, Innsbruck and Madrid, which will host the final concentration. In Austria they will play without the presence of the public, due to the provision decided by the government given the increase in infections.

Davis Cup, when Italy plays

We start today with the first three duels of the group stage

: Canada-Sweden, Croatia-Australia and France-Czech Republic. Each match between teams is played best of three games: two singulars (opposite the numbers 2 and the numbers 1) and a double. Tomorrow it’s up to Italy, who will play the two first phase matches at home against the United States and Colombia, both starting at 4 pm. Davis’ new captain Filippo Volandri had to cash the painful forfeit of Matteo Berrettini, injured in the ATP Finals against Zverev, but has an assorted and quality team. From Jannik Sinner to Fabio Fognini (who became dad for the third time a few days ago), from Lorenzo Sonego landlord in Turin to Lorenzo Musetti, up to Simone Bolelli who took over from Berrettini and a double weapon. Only the first classified from each of the six groups will go to the quarter-finals, plus the two best runners-up: Italy on the field on Friday with the USA and on Saturday with Colombia, in the hope of making the confrontation between the two opponents scheduled for Sunday useless.
