Italy will face the United States in the United Cup final after Bronzetti’s win

Italy will play the United States in the final of the inaugural United Cup in Sydney after defeating Greece in a semi-final of the mixed team competition on Saturday.

Stefanos Tsitsipas kept Greek hopes alive by defeating Matteo Berrettini 4-6, 7-6 (2), 6-4 in a clash between two Grand Slam finalists after Italy won the first two singles on Friday.

The world No.4 held his nerve in a thrilling contest before breaking Berrettini for the first time midway through the deciding set to maintain his unbeaten United Cup record.

“Somehow I stayed in there. He’s a great server. He hits some bombs constantly. You have to accept it, move on from that point and focus on your serve,” Tsitsipas said.

But Lucia Bronzetti secured a place in the final for Italy by beating Valentini Grammatikopoulou 6-2 6-3 to give her nation an unassailable 3-1 lead in the tie played at the Ken Rosewall Arena.

“We’re a great team and I’m really excited, really happy right now,” she said.
