The Spanish team that will play the Davis Cup tennis has been at the microphones of ‘El Larguero’ to analyze together with Manu Carreño and Álvaro Benito how this tournament is presented. The team led by Sergi Bruguera has suffered the loss of Roberto Bautista. The tennis player will be replaced by Albert Ramos.
The coach indicated that Bautista has a small tear in the abdominal. He trained well, but on Monday he felt a bit loaded in the last serves, so he, who knows himself a little and has had injuries, has had an MRI. The test has come out that it has a break. “Now, Alcaraz and Carreño are the ones who are more aimed at being the ones to play the singles,” says Bruguera.
Russia and Ecuador, the first rivals
The Spanish box is pigeonholed in the group with Russia and Ecuador. Pablo Carreño said of the draw that it has been quite bad for them. “Ecuador, a priori, is the easiest rival and we have to do the job. It will not be easy because if they are here it is for something. With the loss of Rober, we lose a very important tennis player, but I think we have a team very complete even so. “
The tennis player himself also said that the rivals to beat are Russia and Italy. In addition, he added that Canada was also very dangerous and has several casualties that make it less dangerous and the United States also has a lot of potential. Serbia will also be there with Djokovic.
Carlos Alcaraz and Feliciano López pointed out that the track is in very good condition and is that in this edition, the tournament is played in the Madrid Arena, and not in the Caja Mágica. The latter also wanted to comment on his future as a tennis player: “I am not wondering how many Davis Cups I have left, I prefer to enjoy the moment. 2022 I will compete in its entirety until they kick me out.”
In line with this statement, the coach affirmed that it is a privilege to be with two tennis players with such a difference in age: “The truth is that now everyone lengthens their career. That a 40-year-old player (Feli) is among the The best in Spain and another 18 (Alcaraz) too, are two special things because they don’t usually happen, “says Bruguera.
Regarding the format of the tournament, Pablo Carreño indicated that it has things in which it has improved and others in which it has lost. “In the end it is very difficult to have everything good. Currently, perhaps the worst is the date. The ideal date is perhaps after the US Open. Or maybe remove the Asian tour and put in the Davis Cup.”
Sergi Bruguera ended the interview by talking about how important it is to play in Madrid, with the public in favor: “The expectations are the same as always. Every time we have played here the public in Madrid responds. They add up a lot and it is very important to have them.”
