The disappointment of Badosa and Muguruza

In the morning, Sergi bruguera communicated the team that will defend the title of the Davis cup within a month, with the news of Carlos Alcaraz placeholder image, replacing Rafael Nadal, with respect to the group that won the Salad bowl two years ago. Next to him will be Pablo Carreño and Roberto Bautista, two top-20 tennis players, plus Marcel granollers and Feliciano lopez, experienced in competition and doubles. Could someone argue if Albert Ramos or Alexander Davidovich deserved a place instead of Feli, each fan has the spirit of a coach, but the line-up itself is coherent to fight for the maximum goal.

So far, the act projected optimism. But the faces and the comments circulating around the Federation they did not convey full happiness. Something was wrong. The women’s team, initially as coherent as the men’s, and even more hopeful, with Garbiñe Muguruza and Paola Badosa up front, he was about to dismember. And it was confirmed in the afternoon. Neither will compete in the Billie Jean King Cup. A tremendous disappointment.

Spain thus loses a unique opportunity to reconquer the old Federation Cup, with Muguruza and Badosa already installed among the best of the season. Both have been removed from the team after qualifying for the WTA Finals, due to the closeness of the dates of both tournaments, 11,000 kilometers apart, of Prague to Guadalajara, and due to the different playing conditions. It is not the first time Garbiñe resigned, he already did it in February 2020 in the tie then not so far from The sleeve, after being runner-up in Australia. Not even her friend’s farewell Carla Suarez its trend has changed. PaulaFor her part, she is new to these struggles, but she has made the same decision. The two have prioritized their individual interests, nothing new in tennis.
