Matteo Berrettini On Netflix: Wimbledon Final Loss To Novak Djokovic Was Really Hard

Wimbledon final loss to Novak Djokovic was very tough

Matthew Berrettini admitted in the Netflix tennis documentary that losing to Novak Djokovic in the 2021 Wimbledon final was a hard pill to swallow. The 26-year-old Berrettini reached his first Grand Slam final at Wimbledon 2021. Berrettini got off to a positive start in his first Grand Slam final, but Djokovic came from a set down to beat the Italian 6-7(4), 6 -4, 6-4 and 6-3.

«I was so close to being a champion. So far, it was the biggest moment of my career. If it wasn’t for Novak, maybe I would have had a slam by now. That loss was really tough, but it taught me a lot. Now, it’s my time «, Berrettini said in the second episode of Break Point.

Berrettini will not lift his first Grand Slam title this January

Berrettini came to this year’s Australian Open hoping to become a Grand Slam champion. Unfortunately for Berrettini, his hopes of winning the Australian Open didn’t last long after Andy Murray defeated him in the first round.

Berrettini had a match point in the tenth game of the fifth set, but Murray saved it to ultimately clinch a 6-3, 6-3, 4-6, 6-7(7), 7-6(6) win. . «I had a match point. It’s just really hard to talk about the match now. It could have been, you know, different just with a different ball.»

Last year I won 7-6 in the fifth. This year I lost 7-6 in the fifth. It’s just tennis,» Berrettini said after the loss. Additionally, Berrettini took a moment to acknowledge Murray’s fighting spirit and dedication following two major hip surgeries.

«It’s impressive what he was able to do after so many surgeries, after all the kilometers he ran in his career. It’s impressive. It just shows how much he loves the game, how much he loves this type of match,» Berrettini added.

Berrettini did not have a great Australian Open and will surely look to make amends in the next Grand Slam tournaments.
