In the beginning it was Anna Kournikova, a Russian tennis player famous both for her tennis and for her extraordinary attractiveness. It seems that the advent of the Russian was like a divide. From that moment on, female and male tennis players were seen as icons of style, fashion and beauty. One of the most appreciated tennis players in recent years for his physical attractiveness is obviously Matteo Berrettini.

The Italian talked in a fun interview with Esquire about why he is considered a good athlete. Berrettini is unquestionably also followed by the female public for a certain charm and he himself joked by explaining that it is all linked to his mother and his mother's family

"Why am I so beautiful? Well, I think there are good Brazilian genes in me (he said in reference to his mother's family - ed.), then I'm also Italian and let's say that I haven't done anything, it's a gift that gave me my family did. It's embarrassing to talk about it. I'm one of the messiest people on the planet and I struggle to carry an object with me all the time. The only thing I always have here is the necklace, my mother gave it to me and I always wear it When you go on the pitch I take it out and always put it on, it's a sort of ritual of mine," he said.

When we talk about Italian tennis we cannot fail to refer to Jannik Sinner but we must not forget that one of the main supporters of this great Italian tennis period is Matteo Berrettini. Matteo was in the Top-10 for some time and, in 2021, he became the first Italian tennis player to reach the final at Wimbledon and achieved many great results, especially playing on grass. This week, after weeks of absence from the Tour, he returned to the field right on the grass-coutrts.
