Southampton beat Carreno in first singles, finishing against Felix Batista
Canada, with full qualification, beat Spain 2-0 in the 2022 ATP Cup. Roberto Batista Aguirre won an extraordinary Felix Agar Aliasim 7-6 6-3 to determine the challenge and deliver the decisive point. Determining the challenge was the first Super Tide set in which all the qualities of the Canadian were revealed. Felix excelled at recovering an early break and saving 5 break points, which would have sent Batista Aquitas 5-3. But the Canadian player was a role model in the tie-break. Felix flew 6-2 with forehand brushes and 6-3 on the first chance at his own serve, after 85 minutes he closed the set with a paradoxical forehand attack along the line. Even in the second set Shapovalov extended the series of break points to save a tough game of 15-40. Then in the eighth game he made a decisive break by stopping his opponent with a straight win. Agar-Aliasim made a double mistake at the triple match point, but the Canadian ended the match with a last-minute serve on the second chance.
Earlier, Denis Shapovalov defeated Spain’s Pablo Carreno Pusta 6-4 6-3 in the first leg for Canada. “I’m glad it’s a big win for us – Shabowalov said at the end of the match – but we’re not done yet. We need to think about moving forward. I hope Felix can give us a point. A great win. , However, gives us relief.However, the previous ones (4-1 for the Spaniards who lost only on clay in Rome in 2019) certainly did not see Shapovalov as a favorite, but the Canadian player, pressing from the baseline for the entire duration of the match (one hour and 39 minutes), flew into the net and made 9 breaks. Saving 8 of 8 points, Shabowalov canceled 5 break points in a game that gave him confidence and courage, and at the end of the second set another subtle moment came when Kareno Busta made up for the 3-4 deficit, but Shabowalov immediately activated the counter brake. He regained his focus by finishing 6-3. Canada started the match with a 3-0 defeat to the United States. But after that painful opening defeat, Canada beat Great Britain 2-1, Germany 2-1, Russia 2-1 in the semifinals and Spain 2-0 in the final. Canada beat Serbia (champion 2-1 after Spain in 2020) and Russia (2-0 in Italy in 2021).
