After Gerard Pique, the Italian captain also found himself in a critical situation

After Gerard Pique, the Italian captain also found himself in a critical situation

For much of its history since 1900, the Davis Cup has been home matches for one team, and the Davis Cup vibe has spread as a positive term in tennis. However, for 2019, Gerard Pique’s Cosmos transformed the series, creating a global final, which they hoped would evoke the atmosphere of a FIFA World Cup. Stan Wawrinka, the three-time Grand Slam-winning Swiss tennis player, explained in a short video clip before the duel against the French that despite the prestigious duo on paper, many people in Manchester are not interested in them. But on Wednesday, the British team was the only one that managed to win as an exit, and the Croatian, Spanish and Italian teams suffered defeats, which was especially embarrassing for the latter.

France reached the World Finals by defeating Hungary, and if we look at the 16-man World Cup, our hearts might hurt a little, because there are some teams that Hungary has a stronger squad than on paper. France is clearly not one of them, nor is Switzerland, yet neither US Open finalist Dominik Stricker nor three-time Grand Slam champion Stan Wawrinka can win a match against the Gauls.

The latter was not satisfied not only with his match against Ugo Humbert, but also with the atmosphere in Manchester.

Gerard Pique’s answer did not convince Wawrinka

This year, Gerard Pique’s company has no connection to the organisation, but the footballer, who retired last year, still feels he has to respond to criticism.

Pique pointed this outLast year, 113,268 spectators watched the group stage matches at the stadium. This means that the average number of spectators per match is 4,719. Noting that he no longer has anything to do with organizing the tournament this year, the former footballer directed Wawrinka to the International Tennis Federation (ITF), which has maintained the format of the World Finals for the time being.
