Volandri replaces Barazzutti as Italy”s Davis Cup captain

Rome, Jan 24 (AP) Former top-25 player Filippo Volandri was named Italy”s Davis Cup captain on Saturday, ending Corrado Barazzutti”s 20-year run in charge.

Barazzutti had also previously been Italy”s Fed Cup captain, a role he ceded to Tathiana Garbin in 2016 after coaching the women”s team to four titles. Barazzutti played on Italy”s team that won the Davis Cup in 1976.

The 39-year-old Volandri had been Italy”s national technical director since 2018.

“Italian tennis will always be grateful to Corrado Barazzutti for his extraordinary contribution to our movement, first as a player and then as a coach,” said Italian Tennis Federation president Angelo Binaghi.

Italy”s team appears to have a bright future with players like Jannik Sinner, Matteo Berrettini, Lorenzo Sonego and Lorenzo Musetti.

“At such an important moment for my coaching career I want to thank Corrado, who in 2001 when he was just named captain let me debut in the Davis Cup even though I was still a kid,” Volandri said.

“I hope I”m able to honor what he did in this position.” (AP) AH
