Camila Giorgi gave Italy the qualification by easily dominating Harmony Tan (6-2, 6-0) at the Billie Jean King Cup in Sardinia.
Italy won Saturday at the expense of France, its ticket to the final phase of the Billie Jean King Cup, thanks to the third point offered by the N.1 Azzurra Camila Giorgi, ruthless against Harmony Tan (6-2, 6-0) on hard in Alghero (Sardinia).
After having already swept Océane Dodin (94th in the world) on Friday to allow the Italians to lead 2-0, the Giorgi tornado (30th) again left no chance to Tan (107th), who preferred Alizé Cornet (34th) for the first singles of Saturday.
Tan had an illusion at the beginning of the match when she made a heavy strike with a break that allowed her to lead 2-0.
But Giorgi quickly found precision and rhythm to leave no more play to his opponent, a terrible 12-0 synonymous with qualification!
Even before the last singles to follow, Italy is guaranteed to play the final phase, which will bring together twelve nations in November.
Like the other beat of the weekend, France will play a play-off on November 11 and 12 to remain in the elite.
