Where and when to watch Italy-Australia Davis Cup final with Jannik Sinner

We’ve been repeating the same thing for days: no Italian has ever come this far, this far Jannik Sinner. In the final of Davis Cup Italy had arrived seven times, the last 25 years ago, with only one victory, in 1976 with the legendary team formed by Adriano Panatta, Corrado Barazzutti, Paolo Bertolucci and Tonino Zugarelli, non-playing captain Nicola Pietrangeli, that of the final in Pinochet’s Chile. However, she had never achieved this by beating the world number one twice in the same day, after having already beaten him just 12 days ago. All the work of Jannik Sinner against, obviously, Novak Dokovic. Italy will play the Davis Cup final against Australia on Sunday 26 November 2023.

The Azzurri reached this final thanks to the South Tyrolean who had already led the team to the semi-final by winning his singles and then the doubles in pairs with Lorenzo Sonego always ready, always solid, always up to par. In the semi-final he did it by beating Novak Djokovic, here on the court with all his strength for Serbia and for one of the few tournaments that he has never won, twice in one afternoon. He did it by beating the Serbian in a match in which Nole had three match points. No one had ever managed it, just as no one had ever beaten him twice in a single day.

Sinner resisted to win even when Djokovic seemed superior in singles. He did something like a champion, demonstrating enormous maturity which was celebrated with a big smile. Smile who remained in the doubles played once again with his friend Sonego. In the end they hugged to the tune of Rino Gaetano, because the sky really seems bluer and bluer, and together they made an appointment for the final.

«I don’t know if it was the match of my life, but it was one of the important ones» said Sinner, guess what?, always with a smile. «It helps a lot that the last competition of the season is a team competition, because you get a lot of energy from your teammates, from everyone, and then it’s different with the public too. It was a beautiful match. In the end I was really happy that the team could at least play the doubles, that they could still have a chance to win the Davis Cup, and we won that too. Yes, it was a really nice day».

Lorenzo Sonego confirms. «It wasn’t easy, it’s never easy when you have Djokovic against you. Today, however, Jannik was shooting missiles from the baseline and it was also easier for me to score points at the net. We are a real team and having the public on our side, which has supported us for three years, has also helped us overcome some complicated moments, like when Djokovic was also playing with the public.”
