12:38 Lorenzo Musetti, during the blue path of the United Cup, beat the Brazilian Meligeni, the Norwegian Durasovic, and the Polish Michalski in two sets. Very affordable opponents for Carrara’s talent, who will have to keep his guard up without basking in Trevisan’s sensational feat.

12:25 Welcome back friends of OA Sport. The splendid match between Martina Trevisan and Maria Sakkari ended a few moments ago, with the blue capable of signing an authentic feat. Italy is therefore ahead 1-0, and soon it will be the turn of Lorenzo Musetti. The Tuscan challenges Stefanos Sakellaridis.

11:11 The second set of the match between Martina Trevisan and Maria Sakkari ended a few moments ago. The Greek won the tiebreak and pushed the match to the third and decisive set. Musetti-Sakellaridis will start following the women’s singles. See you later!

10:35 Good morning and welcome back to the LIVE LIVE written of the second singles of Italy-Greece. The challenge between Trevisan and Sakkari is underway, and Lorenzo Musetti’s opponent has been known for a few moments. It is, as per the rumors of the day before, Stefanos Sakellaridis. See you later!

Good evening and welcome to LIVE LIVE text of the second singles match between Italy and Greece, a challenge that will give away a pass for the 2023 United Cup final. Lorenzo Musetti challenges an unprecedented opponent, namely the Greek Stefanos Sakellaridis, who in the last few days has ousted his compatriot Pervolarakis. Captain Petros Tsitsipas will in any case dissolve the doubts a few hours before the match.

Musetti, a twenty-year-old from Carrara, comes to this appointment on the sidelines of a clear run, made up of three victories without losing any set. It must be said that so far the blue has not faced highly demanding opponents, with only the Brazilian Meligeni present in the ATP top 200. However, his next opponent is making himself known on the ITF circuit, and at just 18 he is starting to approach professional tennis thanks to the Australian experience.

Sakellaridis, eighteen years old from Athens, reaches this semifinal after the surprising victory against the Belgian Bergs, and the defeat suffered at the hands of the Croatian Gojo. 1.98 tall, he has one of his main weapons in the service. Number 803 ATP before his debut in the United Cup, at the end of the 2022 season he reached the semifinals of the ITF tournament in Monastir.

The second singles of Italy-Greece between Lorenzo Musetti and Stefanos Sakellaridis will be the second match starting from 9.00 Italian time after Trevisan-Sakkari. It will be played inside the Ken Rosewall Arena in Sydney with a splendid audience setting. It will be possible to follow the match live on Supertennis and in streaming on the official website of the aforementioned channel. OA Sport, as usual, will offer you LIVE LIVE written point by point of the event. Have fun and go blue!
