Italy win first Davis Cup since 1976

Canada beat Australia in the final of the Davis Cup in Malaga to win the event for the first time in their history. They got off to a strong start as Denis Shapovalov beat Thanasi Kokkinakis in straight sets 6-2 6-4.

Italy beat Australia in the final of the Davis Cup 2-0 to be crowned champions for the first time in almost 50 years in Malaga.

In the opening match of the contest, 22-year-old Matteo Arnaldi overcame Alexi Popyrin 7-5 2-6 6-4 which gained the Italians their first point.

Jannik Sinner was then in action after toppling world no 1 Novak Djokovic less than 24 hours prior. He put on a dominant display to dispatch of his Australian opponent Alex de Munaur 6-3 6-0 in straight sets.

The Italians will now secure the world no 1 spot and seem to be the most exciting team in the world at the moment. Amazingly 2021 Wimbledon finalist Matteo Berrettini was unable to secure a place on the Italian team. He was cheering his compatriots from the sideline but it shows the strength of the team that he was not selected.
