Objective first place in the group: Sunday 18 September will end the first group stage of the 2022 Davis Cup Finals. In the Group Ain which the Azzurri of captain Filippo Volandri, in Bolognahave beaten so far Croatia and Argentina, Italy will face Swedenwith the serious possibility of closing in top of the grouping.
They will move on to second phaseexpected from 22 to 27 November in Malaga, Spainthe first two of each group: in case of victory of the grouping Italy will face the second in Group Dthat is to say USA or Netherlandsin case of second place intersection with the before Group Bwith Spain, Canada and Serbia still fighting for primacy.
The blues are already qualified for i quarter finalsbut I’m not sure yet first place: in case of victory of Croatia on Argentina, to get there first Italy should win at least one of the three matches with Swedenin case of victory of Argentina over Croatia, to get there first Italy should win the direct match with Sweden.
Tomorrow there will be it direct clash of Group Din which it was today Great Britain eliminated: it is very likely that the Italy’s next opponent, one step away from first place in Group Abe right the loser of the match between the USA and the Netherlands.
There top of the board then provides that Italyin case of success in the quartersgo and challenge the winner of the match between the before Group C, the winner of Australia-Germanyand the second in Group Bwhere Canada’s success over Spain has shuffled the cards.
