Biography

Overview

Berrettini is the only Italian man to reach the quarterfinals or better at all four Grand Slam tournaments. The 26-year-old became his country’s first Australian Open men’s singles semifinalist earlier this season, boosting his ranking to world No.6. After undergoing hand surgery in March, Berrettini won two titles and built a 12-match winning streak on his return to the tour. He made his Laver Cup debut in 2021 and  returns this year as Team Europe’s alternate.

Off Court

Growing up, the athletic Berrettini competed in swimming, football and judo. His younger brother, Jacopo, encouraged him to play tennis too, so he could have a hitting partner. Both now play professionally. Berrettini, who lists Team Europe teammates Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal as the athletes who have most inspired him, is an avid basketball fan and names fast food as his biggest guilty pleasure.

Career

Many of Berrettini’s biggest career highs have been achieved in London. At The 02 in 2019, he became the first Italian to score a singles victory in ATP Finals history. Berrettini is also a two-time champion at the prestigious Queen’s Club and was a Wimbledon finalist in 2021. With that stunning run at the All England Club, Berrettini became the tournament’s first Italian singles finalist and the first man from his nation to reach a major final since 1976.
