On the sidelines of the newfound victory, there is also praise from a tennis legend.

Matteo Berrettini got unstuck at the Monte Carlo Masters 1000, making it past the first round thanks to a two-set victory over Maxime Cressy. The Roman is aiming for revival after very difficult months, and in the last hours he has also cashed in the very benevolent words of a symbol of Italian tennis such as Adriano Panatta.

“Berrettini is a very nice guy, very polite and decent. He plays good tennis, earns a lot and now he also has a beautiful girlfriend – was Panatta’s analysis to the microphones of ‘Rai’ – The advice I can give him is to live intensely this moment, which can be beautiful.”

A confirmation on what Panatta himself had already stated to the ‘AGI’ agency on the occasion of World Tennis Day. “Berrettini, as well as Sinner, has the opportunity to return to the top ten in the world. Then, at that point, they can both aim even higher,” he said then.
