Matteo Berrettini believes he now understands what it takes to defeat Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal, therefore he is positive about his chances at the Australian Open. At the 2021 Wimbledon, 26-year-old Berrettini reached his first Grand Slam final before falling to Djokovic in four sets.
Berrettini advanced to the semifinals of the 2022 Australian Open before losing to Nadal in four sets. “It is also, in my opinion, about the experience. You get better at defeating them the more you play against them. I believe it was Novak’s 30th slam final when I faced him at Wimbledon.
My very first. It wasn’t simple because he is a fantastic player as well, obviously. I was and still am incredibly honoured to compete against them. I’m hoping to succeed the following time. I have long runs in slams and am feeling more assured “According to Berrettini and the AAP.
Berrettini in all mood to conquer Australia
Starting his 2023 campaign at the first United Cup is Berrettini. Berrettini will go to Melbourne for the Australian Open after the United Cup. Berrettini stated, “Hopefully, I’ll gain a lot of confidence from this event to have a long run in the Australian Open as well.
Matteo Berrettini failed to complete the Grand Slam in 2022. Berrettini’s 2022 season began with a semifinal finish at the Australian Open, but a hand injury prevented him from competing at the French Open. After skipping the French Open, Berrettini’s Wimbledon run came to an abrupt end when the Italian withdrew from the competition the day before his first-round match after testing positive for COVID-19. At the US Open, Berrettini made the quarterfinal, in which he suffered a straight-set defeat to Casper Ruud. It remains to be seen if Berrettini can win his first Major at the Australian Open.
