Monday Morning Man: Matteo Berrettini!
Italian tennis pro Matteo Berrettini edged past Felix Auger-Aliassime in the Stuttgart Open final on Sunday, lifting his third career singles trophy after a narrow 6-4, 7-6 (11) victory.
Berrettini, 23, was competing in his third singles final of the season, following victory in Budapest in April and defeat in Munich last month, on clay on both occasions. The narrow win marked his first tournament victory on grass.
The victory lifts the sexy pro’s world ranking to a career high number 22.
He will next try and make an impression at Wimbledon where he will be seeded. The furthest he’s ever gone in a grand slam tournament was the third round of the French Open last year.
