Italy vs Australia: Preview
Team Italy will be led by Matteo Berrettini and Jannik Sinner, both of whom have had great success in 2021. Sinner reached his first ATP Masters 1000 Final in 2021 and is also the youngest player in the top 10 rankings. He also won his first ATP 500 singles and doubles titles in 2021. In his first match, Sinner will be up against James Duckworth who recently made his top 50 debut and is ranked the 47th.
In the first game of this matchup, Sinner will go up against Duckworth, followed by a match between Matteo Berrettini and Alex de Minaur. Berrettini is currently ranked the 7th in the world whereas De Minaur is ranked the 34th in the world. Sinner will probably pair up with Berrettini in doubles matches to go up against De Minaur and Duckworth.
Italy vs Australia: Prediction
Team Italy is one of the best in the tournament. In the first match, Jannik Sinner will most probably win without much difficulty despite having less experience due to the high rank difference between him and James Duckworth. This will set Italy up a point. In the next match, Berrettini and Alex de Minaur will surely present a treat to watch and Berrettini is likely to grasp the match win. In the doubles final, the top 10 Italian duo is much stronger and therefore more likely to win.
Prediction: Italy to win 3-0.
