Jannik Sinner has made it official that he will not participate in the Davis Cup competitions. «Unfortunately I didn’t have enough time to recover after the tournaments in America – the message from the leader of Italian tennis – and unfortunately I won’t be able to be part of the team in Bologna. It’s always an honor to play for our country and I’m convinced I’ll return to the national team as soon as possible. Good luck to the boys, see you.”
«We wish Jannik a speedy recovery, we know how much he cares about Davis, he has already shown it. We respect his decision, I’m sure we will have him available in the future.” Filippo Volandri, Italian captain in the Davis Cup, says so, after Sinner made his decision official, not to take part in the group scheduled in Bologna from 12 September. Berrettini’s withdrawal is also official, Volandri has called up Lorenzo Musetti, Lorenzo Sonego, Matteo Arnaldi, Simone Bolelli and Andrea Vavassori.
