Tennis careerEdit

2017: ATP main draw debutEdit

Berrettini made his ATP main draw debut at the Italian Open after earning a wildcard in the pre-qualifying wildcard tournament.[4] He was defeated by Fabio Fognini in the first round. He was the top seed in the eight man Italian field competing for the final spot in the inaugural Next Generation ATP Finals in Milan. He lost to Filippo Baldi in straight sets.[5]

2018: First ATP titleEdit

At the Swiss Open Gstaad, Berrettini won his first ATP title, defeating Roberto Bautista Agut in the final.[6] He also won his first ATP doubles title at the same event, partnering compatriot Daniele Bracciali.[7]

2019: Second and third ATP singles titlesEdit

At the Hungarian Open, Berrettini won his second ATP singles title, prevailing against Filip Krajinović in the final. Berretini continued his form into the following week as he reached the final at the Bavarian International Tennis Championships. There, his nine match winning streak ended as he was defeated by Cristian Garín in a third set tie-breaker. At the Italian Open, Berrettini upset Alexander Zverev in the round of 32 for his first ever win against a top 5 player.

Berrettini's development continued into the grass court season, winning his third singles title in Stuttgart, defeating Félix Auger-Aliassime in the final. During the tournament, Berrettini didn't lose a service game, thereby becoming the sixth man since 1999 to win two tournaments without dropping serve (the other time he accomplished this feat was at the 2018 Gstaad Open).[8] The following week, Berrettini reached his first ATP 500 semifinal at the Halle Open where he was defeated by David Goffin. Following the tournament, the Italian broke into the worlds top 20.

As the 17th seed at Wimbledon, Berrettini reached the second week of a grand slam for the first time after defeating Diego Schwartzman in 5 sets in the third round. He lost his next match to 8 time champion Roger Federer comprehensively in 74 minutes. After congratulating Federer for his win during their post-match handshake, Berrettini jokingly asked Federer "Thanks for the tennis lesson, how much do I owe you?"[9]

Personal lifeEdit

He has a brother named Jacopo Berrettini, who also plays professional tennis and won the bronze medal at the 2018 Mediterranean Games.[10]
