THE MATCH BEGINS! At the Gojo service!

15.16 Last year Borna Gojo beat Popyrin, Sonego and Lajovic, playing extraordinary Finals, dragging his national team to the final.

15.13 Borna Gojo won the draw and decided to serve.

15.11 The “YES!” shouted in unison from all over the building! Thrilling atmosphere in Casalecchio di Reno.

15.10 Our hymn, the hymn of Mameli!

15.09 The first hymn to sound is the Croatian one.

15.08 We remember that in Croatia there is no Marin Cilic, absent this week after the round of 16 reached at the US Open.

15.06 The players who enter the field together with their captains have been announced.

15.03 For double the choices of Filippo Volandri are Bolelli and Fognini: they are certainly the most experienced and solid blue couple to oppose the former world number one Mektic and Pavic.

15.00 The Unipol Arena in Bologna is filling up with a large Croatian band, ready to support the Balkan national team.

14.57 It will be a difficult match for Musetti who starts as a favorite and will have to break the ice: he has shown in Bratislava that he can withstand the pressure and loves to wear the blue shirt.

14.54 The group began yesterday with the surprising 2-1 victory of Sweden over Argentina thanks to the victories of the Ymer brothers against Baez and Schwartzman.

14.51 To the microphones of Sky Sport, Simone Vagnozzi declared that Jannik Sinner will make his debut on Friday with Argentina. For today the young blue has been preserved.

14.48 In the second match Matteo Berrettini will face the Cincinnati champion, Borna Coric. A difficult comparison, but certainly within the reach of the Roman player.

14.45 This is a prize for Musetti who brought the decisive point to Italy with his victory against Norbert Gombos in Slovakia: at his debut in Davis he was very ready.

14.42 Lorenzo Musetti thus confronts Borna Gojo: the pupil of Simone Tartarini has never faced the number 164 in the world.

14.39 There will be no Jannik Sinner, still bruised and not in perfect shape after the ankle problem accused at the US Open. Lorenzo Musetti thus becomes number two and Matteo Berrettini number one.

14.36 It will be important to win the two singles: it would be difficult to double against Mektic and Pavic, as demonstrated last year in Turin, when Sonego’s defeat against Gojo was fatal.

14.33 It is already a fundamental challenge for Italy: probably the most difficult match of the group. The first two go to the finals in Malaga: a success today would allow us to experience the series against Argentina and Sweden with more tranquility.

2.30 pm Good morning friends of OA Sport and welcome to LIVE LIVE by Musetti-Gojo, the match that opens the series between Italy and Croatia, first day of Group A of the Davis Cup.

Hello friends of OA Sport and welcome to LIVE LIVE of the match that opens Italy-Croatia in Group A of the Davis Cup, the one between Lorenzo Musetti and Borna Gojothe number two of the respective national teams.

Lorenzo Musetti is called into question after Jannik Sinner’s forfeit for today’s match: Musetti returns to wear the Italy shirt after taking home the decisive point against Slovakia in the Davis Cup Qualifiers which served as a prelude to the Finals, taken with this group stage.

In front there is Borna Gojo that we learned about last year in Turin. The 1998 class of Split rose to number 164 in the ranking and in 2021 caused great disappointment to Italy, winning against Lorenzo Sonego and dragging his Croatia to the final, also winning against Alexei Popyrin and Dusan Lajovic. His Davis Cup record is four wins and three losses.

OA Sport offers you the LIVE LIVE by Musetti-Gojo that opens the tie between Italy and Croatia in Group A of the Davis Cup. The event will start at 15.00 at the Unipol Arena in Bologna. Good fun!
