Nicola Pietrangeli: "I don't want to talk about Matteo Berrettini"

Jannik Sinner is one of the players with the most victories on the circuit in 2023. Lorenzo Musetti struggled at the start of the season, but scored an unexpected victory in Monte-Carlo, considering the premises, against world number one Novak Djokovic.

In the Principality, however, Matteo Berrettini leaves the scene: the Italian was forced to forfeit before the eighth final against Holger Rune due to an injury to the abdomen. The former Italian tennis player Nicola Pietrangeli, interviewed by Notizie.com, commented on the injury of the Italian number three, not going too far considering the recent past.

Pietrangeli told: "It is not clear what he has him. I don't even want to talk about it, because the last time I spoke about him someone was offended. We are talking about a great player, but we see that in recent times there is something wrong.

I hope he and his staff know what's going on." The reference to the offenses concerns an old statement that Pietrangeli made about the life of Berrettini off the court, comparing it to that of Adriano Panatta, who had responded to this comparison.

The stop, however, does not affect what the blue movement is: two players in the top 20, three in the top 30. "It is a beautiful moment for Italian tennis: the matches and the ATP ranking prove it.

Finally, after a few years of darkness, today we not only have players who are scary and all very young," said the former blue captain of the Davis Cup, who said right on the team competition: "We have all the credentials to be able to reach the finals of the Davis Cup.

Without being presumptuous, I'd say that with the team we have we can aim to win it." Italy has the chance this year to avenge the result of the last edition, where it was defeated in the semifinals by Canada, then last year's winner and holder of the title.

Since the final got at Wimbledon and the two Queen's title, Berrettini didn't get good results, and he is try to find she form he lost in the last months
