Acapulco – The overseas trip of Matthew Berrettini. A month and a half after the elimination in the 1st round to the Australian Open by the hand of Andy Murray, the Roman tennis player is preparing to return to the field in the Mexican ATP 500.
An important tournament in view of the US Masters 1000 in Indian Wells and Miamiwhere Berrettini (slipped to number 24 in the ranking) he also wants to do well to get closer to that top 10 1,500 points away today. “I’ve been top 10 three years in a row and it bothers me not to be – said Berrettini from Acapulco – Unfortunately last year I had a lot of injuries and didn’t play much. Now I hope to do well in Acapulco and that my trip to the United States will be positive”.
Inserted in the lower part of the board, Berrettini will make his debut tomorrow with Slovakian Alex Molcan, number 57 Atp. In the second round, however, the possible clash with the n. 5 of seed Cameron Norrie, back from victory at the ATP 500 in Rio. If Norrie can be Berrettini’s opponent in the second round, there has already been a Briton on the blue’s path in 2023: Andy Murray. That knockout in the first round of the Australian Open, with a wasted match point, didn’t let him sleep at night. “We played a very tough match – Berrettini explained – One of those that will remain in the history of tennis. I had a bit of trouble sleeping thinking about it, but this is tennis and I’ve started training hard again.” (Adnkronos)(photo@Fitp)
