Matteo Berrettini's love life is once again under the spotlight. The golf Ryder Cup is the most important event of the weekend and has involved many famous people from the world of sport. Among these, the Serbian champion, new number one in the ATP world ranking, Novak Djokovic, the Ferrari driver Carlos Sainz and the Italian player, were glimpsed in Rome.
The three took a selfie, which naturally went viral on the web and set social media ablaze. The Italian athlete, still stuck in the pits due to an injury suffered at the US Open, decided to attend the event and accompany his girlfriend Melissa Satta, who was the presenter on the opening day.
The kiss caught by the cameras
During the Ryder Cup Matteo Berrettini and Melissa Satta were filmed by the cameras in a moment, while they were together in front of many people. In the video reported and published by the Italian newspaper Il Messaggero, you can see how the two also kissed each other.
It would also seem like a signal to extinguish any type of controversy over a crisis in the relationship, which someone has highlighted and is pointing out on social media.
During the ceremony the showgirl was interviewed and declared: "I am very excited and proud for this role."
Accompanying her was Berrettini, who left all the attention on her partner: "I'll let her do the talking," he clearly underlined to the journalists present.
The Italian returned to training in recent days and announced his return to the fields through a video on Instagram: "The rehabilitation is progressing well and the ankle is gaining strength every day. I can't wait to return." Berrettini recently signed up for the ATP 500 in Vienna: after the injury at the US Open, Matteo doesn't want to miss all the important events of the season finale and will try to return.
The objective, especially from the beginning of next year, is to earn a lot of points and move up the rankings.
Matteo Berrettini's love story with Melissa Statta coincided with a wave of social controversy, largely unjustified and unfair, from the tennis player's haters, who accused him of dedicating himself too much to his private life, rather than thinking about the court and to tennis.
