Tennis, Italy beaten 2-0: Canada wins the BJ King Cup


By John

Goodbye dreams of glory for the Italian women’s national tennis team. In the final of the Billie Jean King Cup the girls led by Tathiana Garbin they surrendered, 2-0, against Canada. In Seville, after the first point won by the North Americans, with the victory of Marina Stakusic on Martina Trevisan, Also Jasmine Paolini she gave in to her rival. In the second singles, the tennis player from Castelnuovo di Garfagnana, number 30 in the world, gave up against Leylah Fernandez, number 34 in the international rankings, with a score of 6-2 6-3. The double and trophy in Canada’s hands are therefore useless. For Italy it was the sixth final (considering the Fed Cup and the Billie Jean King Cup), the first for ten years now, i.e. since the last triumph, the fourth in history for the Italians, which arrived in 2013. It was the first final act, on the other hand, for the North American team.
