(ANSA) – MILAN, APRIL 29 – The rehabilitation of the little finger of the right hand operated at the end of March “is proceeding according to plan” but Matteo Berrettini is not yet able to reveal when he will return.
“I have not yet decided whether I will participate in Roland Garros – he explains during an event in the Milanese headquarters of RedBull – which at the moment is more no than yes, otherwise I will go directly to tournaments on grass. I do not want to take risks. Wimbledon? Last year? I took the post and lost in the final, next time I hope to score “. Berrettini admits that he did not have an “easy moment” after the injury, also due to having to give up the home tournaments – Monte Carlo and Rome – but he is determined to turn it into “competitive nastiness”: “I always felt a stronger push after a defeat, perhaps due to the desire for revenge which becomes a stimulus. This is why after many injuries I have always come back stronger than before “.
Berrettini denies feeling the weight of fame, multiplied by his participation in Sanremo: “I never expected it, but it’s nice to be recognized. Notoriety must be managed but it has never been a hindrance”. (HANDLE).
