Jannik Sinner Leads Italy To First Davis Cup Title in Almost Five Decades

It’s been almost five decades since the last time Italy won the Davis Cup trophy, and their wait for another epic win is finally over! Jannik Sinner helped his national team overcome Australia to win their very first Davis Cup title in 47 years. Sinner is off another banner season, and he ended it on a high note at the Davis Cup. He was on top of his game in Saturday’s semi-finals and saved three match points against world no. 1 Novak Djokovic to make it to the next stage of the competition, where he faced Alex de Minaur. Sinner secured an easy 6-3 6-0 win over De Minaur, and he had great support from his teammates. Matteo Arnaldi defeated Alexei Popyrin 7-5 2-6 6-4 in a tense opening singles match to give Italy a 1-0 lead before Sinner sealed the deal. Matteo Berrettini was there to support them despite missing the tournament due to injury. This marks Italy’s first Davis Cup win since 1976, and Sinner is proud to be a part of this historic moment. “It has been an incredible feeling I think for all of us and obviously we are really happy. We kept together everything and obviously yesterday we went from one point away from being out and now we can celebrate the win. I think we can all be very, very happy,” said Sinner.
