Italy-Croatia 0-1: 18.31, Sonego ko with the 279 of the world

It had to be the softest match, it turned out to be an impossible Monviso to climb. Lorenzo Sonego, the enfant du pays overwhelmed by tension in the building overlooked by his parents’ apartment, surrenders to number 279 in the Borna Gojo ranking, arrived in Turin to join the Croatian team from the Ortisei challenger.

The Davis Cup quarter-finals match between Italy and Croatia turns towards Zagreb when you least expect it, Sonego fouled and contracted as with the Colombian Mejia, but after a set he had unlocked, he had regained confidence, this time instead it is not enough his own rap shot at full volume under the vaults of the Pala Alpitour to cheer him up (Lorenzo a great music lover and delighted in recording two songs with his friend AlterEdo, a reggaeton specialist). Sonego loses the first set at the tie break exactly like with Colombia, Gojo rocky but not irresistible for the blue he is too wrong, he breaks and returns it immediately, even the net on the side of the Croatian, who closes with a lucky shot but with a large margin, 7-2 (7-6).

Failed comeback

Gojo is absent in the second set

, Sonego resumes the match supported by the Italian bench with mourning on his arm for the sudden disappearance of Dr. Parra, the doctor who cured half a circuit with his miraculous laser. 6-2 Italy, and equal challenge. In the third, Croatia spreads, 3-1, 4-2, before Gojo (who against Australia had already made the feat with Popyryn) remembers that he is well out of the top 270 players in the world. His arm trembles, Sonego tries to take advantage of it, gets back under but – crushed by the responsibility and the weight of Italy on his shoulders – he fails three break points in the seventh game, crucial, until the rival keeps the serve with a daring second ace. . 5-2 Croatia, Italy on the edge of the ravine. The crisis of the irreversible blue and there is nothing that Captain Volandri can do to avoid it: Lorenzo gives up the service to 15, sinking. 6-2 and precious 1-0 point for Croatia.
