Matteo Berrettini was the first ATP Top 10 player to take to the clay at the Mutua Madrid Open. Just 3 days after winning his first title of the 2021 season, the Italian arrived at the Caja Mágica to prepare for the second ATP Masters 1000 of this year’s clay swing.
The Rome native completed a training session early on Wednesday in the Manolo Santana Stadium with Australian player Ajla Tomljanovic. One of the most powerful players on tour, the Italian will be looking to adjust to the conditions at the Mutua Madrid Open.
Berrettini is currently one of the most visible faces of Italian tennis. After playing in the qualifying stages in 2018, Matteo is now facing the challenge of participating in the main draw in the Spanish capital for the first time. The Italian’s confidence is sky-high after bringing his first title of the season home from Belgrade, demonstrating his prowess on the red stuff.
Matteo Berrettini is, without a doubt, one of the hot favourites at this year’s Mutua Madrid Open. Matteo has produced some big results on clay, having won 3 out of his 4 titles on this surface. The Italian is now ready for battle.
