Very solid. Argentina beat Georgia 3-0 on the first day of the ATP Cup, a tournament held in Sydney, which opened the 2022 tennis season on the way to the first big event of the year: the Australian Open.
The albiceleste team prevailed in the opening of group D, with Federico Delbonis victories over Aleksandre Metreveli by 6-1 and 6-2 and Diego Schwartzman against Nikoloz Basilashvili by the same score. The third point was contributed by the duo Máximo González and Andrés Molteni, winners of Saba Purtseladze and Zura Tkemaladze also 6-1 and 6-2.
Argentina’s next commitment will be against the Greece team in the early hours of this Monday: Delbonis will face Michail Pervolarakis, then Schwartzman (13th) will play against Stefanos Tsitsipas – number 4 in the world – and finally the doubles.
This Saturday, Greece just fell to Poland, after a controversial decision by Tsitsipas.
It should be remembered that Argentina, led by Alejandro Fabbri, one of Schwartzman’s coaches, suffered a last-minute casualty due to the Covid-19 positive registered by Federico Coria on his arrival in Australia. His place was taken by Facundo Bagnis.
