The Davis Cup won by Italy will be on display to the public in the Sala degli Arazzi of Palazzo Marino, in Milan, until 13 December, in what could become the new location of the Davis Cup Finals in the coming years. During the opening of the trophy exhibition, the CEO of the Italian Tennis Federation Angelo Binaghi announced that, after having already obtained the possibility of hosting the ATP Nitto Finals in Turin, he will try to organize the final phases of the competition in Milan to national.

"We are ready to compete to bring the Davis Cup Finals to Milan from 2025, as soon as the ITF opens a tender. We are convinced that we have what it takes to put in place a competitive proposal, with the commitment of everyone, public and private.

The Milan Mayor Giuseppe Sala, with whom we have already started to talk, knows the seriousness of our commitment," revealed Binaghi. Confirmation also came from the mayor of Milan, Beppe Sala. The city is the most credible candidate to host a competition such as the Davis Cup Finals.

"Yes, Binaghi called me to understand our interest and our interest is enormous, it is clear that it would be a dream. It must be a strong candidacy, without making a bad impression. We would certainly be interested in it, it would be something prestigious.

I don't know how concrete it is, for now it's a dream," he told. These announcements follow an exciting year for Italian tennis, culminating with the historic Davis Cup victory in Malaga, especially thanks to the performances of its most representative tennis player, Jannik Sinner.

During the SuperTennis award, Binaghi spent beautiful message for Jannik Sinner: "We are your (Sinner - ed.) big family and you can always count on us. We have to move forward, I believe that today we have to go to another dream, after having waited 47 years to bring this cup back to Italy.

Now we need to see what dream to give to our people, first and foremost. Do we want to remain second all our lives, and without the great joy of a Slam? Remain second behind football and Novak Djokovic?"
