Matteo Berrettini: "I'm doing everything possible to get back to my level"

Matteo Berrettini will have the opportunity to raise his head again at the ATP Masters 1000 in Miami. The Italian experienced a start to the season that didn't live up to expectations, but he has no intention of giving up.

At Challenger 175 in Phoneix he didn't achieve the desired result, he was eliminated in the quarterfinals by Alexander Shevchenko, but he still put in important minutes in his legs. Berrettini also had to deal with the criticisms received on social media for off-court factors.

Many users have attributed the blame for some negative performances in a very superficial way to the new love story with showgirl Melissa Satta. Of the totally unfounded accusations that have however influenced the Italian tennis player.

He said to Sky Sports: "I'm working very well with my team and I have full faith in them. We're doing a job to try and feel good mentally and physically. I know I have the right level and that, as in all careers, There are times when things go less well.

But I'm ready, I'm fighting and I'm doing everything I can to get back to the level I deserve."

He also said a few hours ago: "Now I'm fine. I had some difficult moments this season, but they are part of the life I have chosen.

I know very well that there are moments of up and moments of down." The name of Berrettini's first opponent in Miami will emerge from the match between Mackenzie McDonald, who defeated an injured Rafael Nadal at the Australian Open, and Colombian Daniel Elahi Galan.

In case of success in his debut, the path of the blue could then intertwine with that of the number 15 seed Alex de Minaur. Berrettini was drawn in the same round of 16 as Daniil Medvedev. The Russian, considering the negative results achieved last season, is clearly recovering and only the current ATP number one Carlos Alcaraz prevented him from winning the fourth consecutive title at the Indian Wells Masters 1000.
