Due to a grade 2 tear in his internal oblique muscle, Matteo Berrettini will not be competing at the BMW Open in Munich. The 27-year-old Berrettini was slated to make his second appearance in Munich this year. Berrettini, the winner of the 2019 Munich tournament, will regrettably have to delay his return to Munich for at least another year.

Former No. 6 in the world Berrettini began his clay-court season in the Monte Carlo Masters. Berrettini had a great start in the Principality, defeating Maxime Cressy and Francisco Cerundolo to get a matchup with Holger Rune in the round of 16.

But then, the day before his round of 16 match against Rune in Monte Carlo, Berrettini revealed that he was pulling out due to an injury.

What illness or injury is Berrettini experiencing?

“I’m not sure where to begin.

This is a challenging one, but I was finally rising to the occasion and returning to my desired position.

I’m sorry to inform you that I will be unable to participate in my match in Monte Carlo today. During yesterday’s game, my obliques started to hurt.

Overnight, the agony considerably increased. My medical team and I opted to get an MRI scan this morning after discussing the matter. I have an internal oblique muscle rupture of grade 2. I owe you all a huge debt of gratitude for your help.

The support means so much to me and is what helps me get through these trying times, Berrettini said on Thursday. This was disastrous for Berrettini. Berrettini struggled with his game in the first three months of the 2023 season after dealing with setbacks and injuries throughout the whole 2022 season.
