This year has been full of setbacks and hassles. The positivity of Covid-19 has indeed prevented him from being at the start of the London Slam and playing his chances for an important result, but Matteo Berrettini is trying to forget this new setback before the start of Wimbledon.
The Italian has made a full recovery, has been virus-free for several days, and is eager to play his first game since the enforced layoff. Berrettini, like many other tennis players, has shifted his focus from clay to hard courts in Europe before heading to the United States.
Roman, who is now 26 years old, will play in the ATP 250 in Gstaad, Switzerland, where he will be given the number two seed. Casper Ruud, a formidable opponent on clay, has emerged as his primary challenger. However, Ruud’s return to Sweden has not been stellar after he was stunned in his debut match by Argentine Cerundolo.
This time Berrettini is the one doing the talking.
The Italian hopes that he can bring back the form he showed at Stuttgart and Queen’s. Matteo discussed what occurred in the United Kingdom once again during an interview with the Gazzetta dello Sport “It was ridiculous, especially considering how hard my team was working to hide their sadness.

Even though I don’t usually enjoy tennis unless I’m actually participating in a match, I just couldn’t bring myself to watch this. I wasn’t very sociable with anyone who tried to get in touch with me by phone or mail, I’ll admit “He let it slip.
A look at how he got past that low point: “To the best of my ability, I tried to see the bright side of things. Despite my feelings of sadness and disappointment, I was grateful to have spent two weeks in this city without having to worry about finding gainful employment. the better of the two.
My comeback from surgery was marked by success, as I took first place in two tournaments shortly after returning. Ultimately, I aimed to leave London with a sweet taste of victory at Queen’s rather than disappointment at missing Wimbledon “And with that, he drew a conclusion.
