Berrettini happy with this new experience
«It’s nice to be here and play another mixed team event. We are happy and excited to play and are really looking forward to getting started and seeing how the new format plays out. It’s going to be exciting because I’ve never played mixed doubles before. We demand from each other to improve more and more and achieve more. So when we play a team competition like the United Cup, it feels good.«.
Vavassori repeats the experience
«This is my second experience as a team member. I played here in Melbourne (Australia) in the ATP Cup with Matteo. We reached the final with Vincenzo as captain and it was one of the best experiences of my career.. We try to do our best. I think we have a good team with great people. We are at the beginning of our career and I think we will share some great moments together«.
Musetti eager to start
«This is our first joint competition. I enjoy sharing these experiences with friends. I think it will be a great event and I am happy to be part of the team. We are ready for the first game (Brazil), although it will not be easy, but we have a good team with a strong captain and I think we can do very well. We are confident and we will try to get to Sydney to fight for the title«.
