Davis Cup, Canada’s Berettini dreams: “Miracle? Let’s see”

The Romanian tennis player believes it: “Today I did my best practice since I injured myself”

Matteo Berettini could be Italy’s extra weapon in their Davis Cup semi-final against Canada. The Romanian tennis player is not denying her sensational recovery. “I am recovering very quickly. I had the best workout today since I hurt myself. The team is working well, yesterday they all played like crazy – he explained at the press conference -. I am glad that this is happening. For me I will play even one leg but you have to be objective and do your best for the team. Is it a miracle? We are watching“.

Sidelined by a leg injury, Berettini followed the match against the United States from the stands, encouraging first his teammates Sonego and Musetti, then the Fognini-Bolelli duo, and offering valuable advice. A clear sign of the compactness of the team created by Filippo Volandri, stronger than without Sinner and Perettini, who now dreams of being able to take the field against Canada with his brother-in-law Felix Auger-Aliassime. “When Volandri called me a year and a half ago to start this new project, he told me that the basic thing is to create a team – explained Berettini at the press conference – and I immediately shared his vision. In my opinion, Davis, and we proved it yesterday, it is very The important thing, so when I realized that I was late with the preparation to come here, I want to be anyway, because in my opinion I can contribute and I suffered three times last year”. The final choice rests with Captain Volandry.
