The words of Matteo Berrettini after the first round in Marrakech


A very strong Matteo Berrettini got through the first round of the Marrakech ATP 250 without any problems, getting rid of a tricky opponent like Alexander Shevchenko, number 56 in the ATP ranking, with a clear 6-2 6-1 after only 75 minutes of play.

"It's great to be back after such a long time, I've missed playing,” admitted the Italian at the end of the match. I want to have fun playing, I enjoy every match. I need to be on the court, è it was a very positive match for me and I am happy. It's an extraordinary moment for Italian tennis players, there are many of us".

The Roman tennis player also wanted to 'thank' Jannik Sinner: "Jannik has done a great job, he is winning a lot. His victories push us to give our best. Italian tennis is doing well, there are so many young people. It's a great moment, as shown also by the victory in Davis".
