The Swiss Open in Gstaad, Switzerland, will see Matteo Berrettini sporting a new signature sign. Amidst the turmoil of Wimbledon, the Roman tennis player rose to the world’s 15th position and the second-highest ranking in Italy, but he was overtaken by Jannik Sinner, who returned to the Top 10.
The Italian opted to travel to Switzerland to compete in the 250 clay court tournament since he had not played on a tennis court since the Queen’s final. Berrettini had a monkey tattooed on his side before he left for Switzerland and returned to play.
Tennis star Federico Delbonis, who is based in Rome, has a number of tattoos on his body, including this one. The date of his brother Jacopo’s birth has been etched into his biceps as a tribute to his sibling’s tennis prowess.
The Wimbledon finalist also got a twenty-rose tattoo as a love letter to his girlfriend. It is a nod to the necklace he wears all the time and the spot he takes on the bench for every big game.
“It is a constant companion for me, and I take it everywhere I go. When I am playing, I would put it on the bench because it brings back memories of my family, which is always my focus. After that, I got it tattooed on my body as a constant reminder that even if life throws you a curveball, you can always get back on track “According to the Gazzetta, he had informed them of his own free will in making this statement.
Having completed the first half of the season on clay, Matteo Berrettini, like many others, will go to North America to compete in the second half of the season on cement, notably the Cincinnati Masters 1000. To conclude the season’s grand slam tournaments, the US Open will be held in New York.
