Italian tennis ace Matteo Berrettini told the press that he was extremely disappointed after his Wimbledon withdrawal. His unfortunate exit came to post his positive covid report.
The former Wimbledon finalist started his grass season with amazing performances. He won the titles in Stuttgart and Queen’s. After these performances, Berrettini stood among the favorites to lift the Wimbledon title. His first-round fixture was against Cristian Garin. Berrettini also had to skip the French Open due to an injury.
The Italian star admitted,
“At one point we said to ourselves there is something or someone who is cursing us, I don’t know.”
Matteo Berrettini is hopeful to make a comeback in the US Open
After dropping out of the Wimbledon, Championships, the Italian got some time off from the sport to prepare better for the last grand slam of the year. The player is now fully prepared for his upcoming ATP Masters events before the ultimate championship. His next stop would be in Montreal and then Cincinnati.
“But first I would like to do well in the two Masters 1000,”
Berrettini said in an interview.
“I’ve never played in Canada, I’ve never had great results in Cincinnati. I have a lot of motivation, competitive anger for what has been a bit taken away from me this season.”
Berrettini’s appearances in the tournaments are a lot lesser than what he would’ve thought of at the beginning of the year. But at the same time, his potential to reach the finals of any tournament cannot be denied. He’s made just six appearances in the past seven months.
About his home turf in Turin, he said
“The season is still long, Turin remains a target for many reasons.”
The Italian further added that
“I feel I belong to that level, despite everything I am still in the race and I want to do my best to get there.”
Alongside his fans, Berrettini also will be aiming to lift the US Open. The competition will be starting on 29th August.
