Italy is out of Davis Volandri: “We’ll try again”

TORINO

The dream of the Final Four was shattered in the last match against Croatia, but Italy greets the Davis Cup with their heads held high. “We have put a first brick of something important, which we will build over time”, is the certainty of Filippo Volandri who, on his debut as a non-player captain, says he is “proud” of the blue team, which reached the quarterfinals despite the forfeit of the injured Matteo Berrettini and a Simone Bolelli, world number 9 in the doubles, never available. “We could have had a little more luck”, admits the Italian coach, convinced that “the path in the coming years will become more and more important”. There remains the satisfaction of having “given everything”, trying “always to win”.

Volandri defends Sonego: «Lorenzo played very well in the last part of the season. I have never had any doubts about him, because when he is called in the house he always gives his best ».

One point on which there is room for improvement is the double. «All the teams we found this week in Turin have an exceptional double. Including the Croats, who are number 1 in the world – observes Volandri – To try to be calm we had to bring home both singles and this created tension ».

Fognini could say goodbye to Italy and Davis: «I can’t say anything about the future – the words of the Ligurian -. First of all I will have to deserve the call-up, I don’t know if I will play with these guys, they are very strong ». –
