On Netflix’s tennis documentary, Matteo Berrettini said that losing to Novak Djokovic in the 2021 Wimbledon final was a difficult thing to take. At Wimbledon 2021, 26-year-old Berrettini reached his first Grand Slam final. In his maiden Grand Slam final, Berrettini got out to a good start, but Djokovic rallied from a set down to defeat the Italian 6-7 (4) 6-4 6-4 6-3.
“I’m very close to winning the title. It was the pinnacle of my professional life thus far. I might already have a Slam if Novak hadn’t interfered. Although that loss was really difficult, I learned a lot from it. Now is my chance, “On the second episode of Break Point, Berrettini said.
In January, Berrettini won’t win his maiden Grand Slam championship.
Berrettini entered the Australian Open this year with the goal of winning a Grand Slam. Berrettini lost to Andy Murray in the first round, which unfortunately ended his chances of winning the Australian Open.
In the tenth game of the fifth set, Berrettini faced a match point, but Murray saved it to go on to win 6-3 6-3 4-6 6-7 (6) 7-6 (6). “I was in the lead. Just talking about the game right now is extremely difficult. With a different ball, things may have been…different.
I prevailed 7-6 in the fifth last year. In this year’s fifth, I was defeated 7-6. There’s only tennis, “Berrettini declared following the defeat. Berrettini also praised Murray for his perseverance and commitment despite undergoing two major hip surgeries.
“It’s amazing what he was able to accomplish after so many operations and all the miles he had run previously. It’s amazing. It simply demonstrates how much he enjoys the game and these types of matches “said Berrettini.
Berrettini didn’t perform well at the Australian Open, and he will undoubtedly try to redeem himself at the following Grand Slam competitions.
