In an interview, the Italian tennis commentator Luca Bottazzi, who works for Sky Sport and Eurosport during some Grand Slams and Masters 1000s, commented on the new season. 'I think the men's crown will be contended by (Novak) Djokovic and (Rafael) Nadal', said Bottazzi.
'In women's tennis, I believe that Naomi Osaka will be doing great things. I hope Matteo Berrettini achieves a great result at Wimbledon.' In the new Davis Cup format, Bottazzi added: 'It's just about money, not a reform.
The authorities did not manage to make the Davis Cup great again. A little bit like with the men's doubles. I think the game needs more professional experts.' About the younger players, Bottazzi added: 'On the ATP, De Minaur, not Shapovalov, will be the biggest surprise.
On WTA Kasatkina should reach her maiden Grand Slam final while Serena Williams is unlikely to win her 24th Grand Slam title.' Bottazzi also feels tennis is different now: 'The current tennis is about technology.
Before you had more elegance, now you have fire weapons.' He finally gave an opinion on how tennis commentary works: 'Commenting matches on TV is a pleasure that requires the commitment to need to give the fans a story that makes them understand the game and not just watching it.'
