Matteo Berrettini’s concrete season begins with disappointment.

Returning to the court after losing the Swiss Open final to Casper Ruud, Matteo Berrettini enjoyed the favor of the odds in the 32nd final match at the ATP Masters 100 tournament in Montreal against Spaniard Pablo Carreño Busta, number 23 in the world rankings. However, the Roman tennis player, who has rarely appeared so foul, gave way to his opponent, who closed the file with an eloquent 6-3 6-2.

In the first partial, Berrettini gave up his serve in the eighth game, allowing the Iberian to go on to serve, successfully, for the first set.

In the second fraction, the break in favor of the Spaniard came as early as the third game, with the Roman then holding serve with difficulty in the fifth game. Berrettini, however, is not really on his day, and subsequently gives up in the other games, finally succumbing 6-2 and never even giving himself an opportunity to counterbreak his opponent, who appeared more solid than ever on serve.
