Matteo Berrettini finds himself in great company among those who have won back-to-back Queen’s Club titles.
Matteo Berrettini clinched victory over Filip Krajinovic at the Queen’s last weekend and lifted the trophy for the second consecutive year after beating the Serb 7-5, 6-4 in the final.
Berrettini joins Andy Murray, Andy Roddick and Boris Becker to retain their title at Queen’s Club while all other stars on the list reach world No. 1.
The 26-year-old knocked out Britain’s Dan Evans in the round of 32 early in the tournament before reaching the final in the English capital five days later.
Berrettini has now won back-to-back titles after beating Andy Murray and winning the Stuttgart Open earlier this month.
Here’s everything you need to know about the world No. 10 on the rise…
Who is Matteo Berrettini?
Matteo Berrettini was born in Rome, Italy and has a younger brother, Jacopo, who is also a professional tennis player.
The 26-year-old was ranked No. 6 in the world in January and has won seven ATP Tour singles titles.
He enjoyed a historic run at the 2021 Wimbledon Championships, becoming the first Italian to reach a Wimbledon singles final and the first Italian to reach a grand final since Adriano Panatta at the 1976 French Open.
Berrettini recently ended his relationship with the Croatian-born Australian tennis star and his girlfriend Ajla Tomljanovic.
Comeback from injury
Berrettini’s Queen’s Club title is more impressive given that he was sidelined for several months before the tournament.
The Italian underwent surgery on his right hand after the Indian Wells Open in March and missed a total of three months of action.
However, his absence from court clearly did not affect him and he was able to return to great form in London.
Net Worth & Career Income
As of January 2022, Berrettini is believed to have a net worth of $6 million.
According to the ATP Tour website, he has earned $9,920,046 during his career.
It was reported that the winner of the Queen’s Club Championships would receive over £340,000 last week.
Will he play at Wimbledon?
The Italian star has won 20 of his last 21 games on grass, his only loss coming in last year’s final.
Berrettini was beaten by Novak Djokovic in a historic 6-7 6-4 6-4 6-3 and he will be looking to redeem himself in what has been a brilliant year so far.
What did he say before Wimbledon?
After yesterday’s win at the Queen’s Club, Berrettini has expressed his positive attitude towards Wimbledon.
Speaking to BBC Sport, he said: “I couldn’t ask for a better start to the grass season.
“I feel really good. Obviously a best-of-five slam is different and there’s going to be a lot of pressure on me, but I think that’s normal. I know it will be very difficult to get to the final, but I like doing it, I like going beyond my limits.”
