AGI – Yes stops in the quarter-finals Italy’s journey in the Davis Cup: on the fast indoor Pala Alpitour in Turin the Azzurri lose 2-1 to Croatia.
Double fatal where Jannik Sinner – preferred to Simone Bolelli – and Fabio Fognini must surrender to the number one duo in the world made up of Mate Pavic and Nikola Mektic for 6-3 6-4. Previously, in the first singles, Lorenzo Sonego was surprisingly defeated by Borna Gojo, number 279 in the ranking, who had won 7-6 (2) 2-6 6-2 after a battle of two hours and 19 minutes.
Sinner thought about keeping the Azzurri afloat: under 6-3 5-4 with Marin Cilic serving for the match, the 20-year-old from Sesto Pusteria had managed to overturn the fate of the match, up to 3-6 7 -6 (4) 6-3.
In the late evening, the double, but the two Azzurri did not succeed in the feat: Croatia went to the semifinal, waiting for the winner of Serbia-Kazakhstan.
