A problem in his right leg forced him Matthew Berrettini to withdraw from his match against Holger Rune at the ATP 500 tournament in Acapulco. The Italian tennis player stopped again due to an injury and after about thirty minutes of play, down 0-6, 0-1, he decided to raise the white flag so as not to complicate his situation.
The Indian Wells and Miami Masters 1000 is in serious doubt: Berrettini will make his decision in the coming days. Several tennis fans are angry with Berrettini and comments about his love affair with Melissa Satta have unfortunately invaded social media..
Stephen Massarimental coach of the Italian tennis player, clarified the situation in an exclusive interview with Super Tennis.
Massari defends Matteo Berrettini
Massari explained: «He finished the Australian Open angry at the loss and regretful that he hadn’t been able to turn the match he had restarted.
Then, after a difficult year, in which he trained and played little, he decided to take a break to have more time to train and then be able to play continuously. A longer rest for love? No, I also talk to him about the things that happen to him off the pitch and therefore about his important relationships: I met his girlfriend about ten years ago and then Ajla, I don’t know Melissa yet, but I’m sure Matteo is fine with her and this has a positive effect on him..
Matteo is happy with what is happening to him in this relationship which is different from a fellow tennis player who is always a bit older but not as much as Melissa, who comes from show business.
It seems to me that he lives very well. Someone thinks and writes on social networks and jokes that Melissa is the cause of her latest injury: whoever trains him and therefore me too, perhaps, paradoxically, we would be happy if it were like that, but Matteo was injured other times and in his private life there were no conditions today».
