During the match valid for the FIFA World Cup qualifiers between Italy and Switzerland, the ATP Finals 2021 advertisements were broadcast with Italian channel Rai 1 which advertised the match on Sunday evening between Matteo Berrettini and the world number 3 Alexander Zverev.
A lot of waiting for a super match, but in front of the advertising a large part of the tennis fans were baffled. The public broadcaster sponsored the challenge with the photo of Mischa and not Alexander Zverev, the older brother and now number 256 in the world.
A gaffe that gradually took on the contours of the world and saw the same Mischa protagonist. In the last hours, the tennis player, among other things also commentator for Eurosport, has put a story (also re-posted by Sascha) where he publishes the error of the Rai and claims that he is not in Turin amid the general laughter with his brother.
Undoubtedly not a great start for the ATP Finals, a long-awaited event that is held with us.
