New ATP Cup schedule sees Greece face off against Team Spain on Friday morning


By Bill Roumeliotis

The ATP Cup will resume on Friday with three group stage ties at Melbourne Park, with Team Greece facing Team Spain at 10am in the Melbourne Arena.

The two team countries were scheduled to face off last night at the Rod Laver Arena, yet a new COVID-19 case forced all tennis players to get tested and isolate before receiving their results.

At 10 a.m Michalis Pervolarakis will face Pablo Carreño Busta, followed by Stefanos Tsitsipas playing against Roberto Bautista Agut. Rafael Nadal continues to suffer from his waist problem and therefore withdrew his participation in the round. The doubles match will follow, where Greece will line up with their two top players.

Greece has mathematical hopes of qualifying for the semifinals, but in order to achieve this they will need to win all 3 matches against Spain. In any other case, the Spaniards will be the ones to enter the next stage.

Also with a one day delay, due to the postponement of yesterday’s matches, Maria Sakkari will start her run for the Grampians Trophy in Melbourne. The top Greek tennis player, who qualified directly for the round of 16, will face the very talented 18-year-old Leylah Fernandez in the first match at Court 8, at 11 am.
