“I would like to see Roger Federer play,” said Matteo Arnaldi.
The Top-100 is now within reach for Italian tennis player Matteo Arnaldi, 22, thanks to the points he earned in winning his third career Challenger in Murcia. This is one step closer to his first significant professional objective. The ATP 500 in Barcelona is now in his sights after he made his debut there against Jaume Munar following two qualification matches.
“I went to Murcia to win and score important points to enter the main draw at the Roland Garros,” he said, “with his eyes set on the main draw of the Roland Garros.” It might be helpful to draw inspiration from successful people, and Matteo Arnaldi has a model he can look up to even though he uses springs: “With the proper dimensions, people tell me that I resemble Novak Djokovic somewhat, as I am a baseline counterattacker in terms of personality.
I respect him, but if I had to take something from a notable player, living or dead, I would want Federer‘s perspective on the game.
“I dream of a Grand Slam,” says Arnaldi.
rooted in the heart yet with an eye toward the major international platforms.
Matteo Arnaldi, who recently discussed his career goals and beyond in an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport, embodies this mindset.
Everyone aspires to win a Grand Slam, but it is an extremely lofty goal, according to Hethen.
Rome is the tournament of the heart for Italians; playing at the Forum gave me my deepest emotional experience to date. However, I also mention Monte Carlo because I am close by. There is still a long way to go, according to Arnaldi, who is already well-known on the Challenger circuit but is having trouble finding his dimension at a higher level.
I’ve already shown myself capable in the Challengers, but thus far, things haven’t gone according to plan in the major ATP competitions. I was ill and had a fever while I was in Doha and Dubai. And other times, like Kokkinakis in the Indian Wells qualifiers, I’ve simply had to contend with strong opponents. Last but not least, a parenthesis on his fellow countryman Fabio Fognini, with whom he started down a different path: “Fabio wanted me in his management agency, and our friendship has grown stronger in the last six months.
Although we are all buddies, I also get along well with other Italians. Francesco Passaro is my closest friend; we went to school together.
