Matteo Berrettini is an Italian professional tennis player who achieved his high rank in January 2022 as world No. 6 in singles by the Association of Tennis Professionals and world No. 105 in doubles achieved on July 2019.
Berrettini has produced his best major performance by reaching the singles final of the 2021 Wimbledon Championships and has won seven ATP Tour singles titles and two doubles titles.
He is the first and only man born in the 1990s and the first Italian man to reach the quarterfinals or better at all four Grand Slam.
Berrettini is known for his aggressive game style boosted by his large build. Berrettini at 6 feet 5 inches tall possesses one of the tour fastest serves and often uses his heavy topspin forehand to dictate rallies and set up one-two punches. This makes him versatile on all surfaces.
