A forfeit arrives, resulting in an all-Italian derby.

Matteo Berrettini will face a change of schedule at the Phoenix SuperChallenger, a tournament by participating in which he will try to forget the bitter elimination at the Indian Wells Masters 1000. In fact, his first opponent in Arizona will no longer be Belarusian Ilya Ivashka, but compatriot Mattia Bellucci.

The reason for the change of schedule is soon said: Ivashka has in fact decided to withdraw from the Phoenix tournament, whose schedule has undergone a change in extremis. Thus, for Berrettini comes the first-ever challenge on the ATP circuit against Bellucci, currently number 150 in the world.
