On Friday (4:00 p.m., Movistar) the Spanish tennis team will seek to seal its ticket to Kroos’ role in the 2022 Davis Cup Finals with a second win in their group against Canada, a potential contender they will already be able to. Count, save for surprise, with Carlos Alcaraz.
The player from Murcia, recently named world number one and US Open champion, took a break on Wednesday in the first elimination round of the ‘Tour Robin’ hosted by Fuente de San Luis de Valencia, in order to recharge Body and Mind after the wear and tear he suffered in New York.
The man from El Palmar was sitting on the bench cheering his teammates, who not only missed him in his debut against Serbia, settled with a net worth, but also with plenty of work, for an excellent 3-0. Albert Ramos, replacing Alcaraz, was forced from the back to get rid of Laszlo Djere, and Roberto Bautista was number one to defeat the dangerous Miomir Kekmanovic in both tiebreaks. The double of Marcel Granollers and Pedro Martinez debuted with the win as well.
Now, the most natural thing is that the Spanish captain, Serge Bruguera, put the champion in Flushing Meadows in this tie and that the man from Castellón, who left good feelings and is already coping with this competition well, opens it. The Granollers and Martinez remained at the crucial point.
Castellon’s player will open against server Vasek Pospisil, who has a positive score of 3-1, but the only defeat in his last encounter, in 2020 at the US Open, will face the Canadian top seed Murcien. Only one, in the 2021 US Open quarter-final, due to physical problems when he was already losing 6-3, 3-1.
