Berrettini makes triumphant return to ATP circuit with convincing victory in Morocco

Posted : 03 April 2024

After enduring seven months plagued by injuries, Italy's Matteo Berrettini, a Wimbledon runner-up in 2021, made a triumphant return to the main ATP circuit on Tuesday. Despite his ranking slipping to 135th, the former world No 6 displayed his prowess by defeating Kazakh Alexander Shevchenko, ranked 56th, with a commanding 6-2, 6-1 victory on the clay courts of Morocco. Berrettini's successful comeback sets the stage for an eagerly anticipated second-round encounter against Spaniard Jaume Munar.


Reflecting on his return to competitive tennis after the extended hiatus, Berrettini expressed his enthusiasm and energy, emphasizing the significance of being back on the court. The 27-year-old acknowledged the challenges posed by the lengthy period without playing but demonstrated resilience and determination in his performance.


Berrettini's journey back to competitive form has been marred by a series of setbacks, including a ruptured right ankle ligament at the US Open last August and a foot injury that led to his withdrawal from the Australian Open earlier this year. Despite facing adversity, Berrettini's recent achievements, including reaching the final of a Challenger event in Phoenix, underscore his unwavering commitment to overcoming obstacles and reclaiming his position among tennis's elite.
