Day three: The Brits finish qualifying with loss to Italy

Great Britain’s quad wheelchair team finished their journey in 2023 BNP Paribas World Team Cup Qualifiers with a 3-0 loss against Italy.

The Brits exit this year’s competition having also lost to Turkey and Germany in their previous matches in the round robin group.

New LTA Colour Holder Gary Cox won his first set as a Great Britain player today, joining Richard Green in producing two absorbing three-set singles matches as Great Britain’s World Team Cup European Qualification campaign.

Cox, who made his Great Britain debut in Thursday’s second of three round-robin ties against eventual Qualification group winners Turkey, made a confident start to the third day of play in Antalya and took the opening set against Italy’s world No.40 Mario Alfredo Naselli. However, the world No.59 was not able to retain the advantage and Naselli ultimately sealed a 2-6, 6-4, 6-4 win.

Green’s only previous match against Italy’s Alberto Saja ended in a final set tie-break when they met at last month’s Bolton Indoor ITF 3 tournament. World No.31 Green fought back in another battling performance against the world No.29 but Saja finished the stronger to prevail 7-6(4), 3-6, 6-0 and guarantee Italy the win.

Cox then teamed up with Greg Slade for the doubles tie against Naselli and Saja. Despite the Brits fighting back from a one set deficit to clinch the second set, it was the Italians who came out on top in the decisive match tie-break to claim a 6-2, 7-6(5), (11-9) victory.
