Nitto ATP Finals debutant Taylor Fritz answers a lightning round of questions about Italy...

Visit the Colosseum or climb Mount Vesuvius?
I would probably visit the Colosseum. It sounds a little easier. Sounds like a more chill day.

Attend a Serie A football match or watch the historic Italian Grand Prix at Monza?
I’d go to the football match. I like soccer.

Films set in Italy: The Godfather or The Italian Job?
The Godfather.

Espresso or Cappuccino?

Favourite pizza topping?
Probably pepperoni or olive.

Is there a topping you won’t eat?

Favourite pasta dish?
Probably a truffle pasta or a carbonara.

Which Italian dish can you cook best?
Probably none of them… I guess I can cook pasta. It’s not too tough.

What first comes to mind when you think of Italy?
Probably pasta. The food.

How does it feel to be here for your debut?
It’s great, I’m really excited. It was one of my goals at the beginning of the year to be here, and obviously a week ago I thought I was going to be here as an alternate. So, I’m lucky, I’m fortunate to be playing and I’m really excited to get started.

Thoughts on the format, will you approach it differently?
No. It’s good, if you don’t play a good match or lose a match, you still get two more to try again. I also just like the fact that it’s against the best players. I feel like I always play my best tennis against the best players, so it will be good fun.
