Canada overcomes Italy and reaches its second Davis Cup final

The Canadian Davis Cup team has qualified this Saturday for the 2022 final with a 2-1 victory over Italy and with Felix Auger-Aliassime as the main executor, by winning his individual match and being recalled minutes later to play the doubles instead of Denis Shapovalov.

With the victory of Auger-Aliassime and Vasek Pospisil over Fabio Fognini and Matteo Berettini, who also entered the doubles at the last minute without having debuted before in Malaga, by 7-6 (2) and 7-5, the point was added to the one that had previously won the number 6 in the world to Lorenzo Musetti (6-3 and 6-4) and Canada certified the pass to the final this Sunday against Australia.

The first individual match had been lost by Shapovalov against Lorenzo Sonego by 7-6 (4), 6-7 (5) and 6-4.

Canada has never won the Davis Cup. He will play his second finalafter the one he lost in 2019 in Madrid against Spain, at the premiere of the current Davis format.

The Canadians and Australians have met ten times in this competition, with clear 9-1 advantage for the aussies in those backgrounds.
