Matteo Berrettini will also not be present on the red pitch in Rome, as he was preparing to make his Internazionali Bnl debut at the Foro Italico in the derby with Stefano Napolitano on Thursday May 9. After Jannik Sinner and Carlos Alcaraz, this is his last excellent retirement, which the 28-year-old announced at a press conference visibly disappointed. “I won't be able to play, I tried to do everything, but I'm not ready to compete. I risk injuring myself and being immobile,” he told reporters, confirming his withdrawal from the Masters 1000 tournament. “I have taken a lot of medications that have weakened me and I don't feel the strength I have. I needed. I'm afraid that when I play tomorrow something will happen to me and, after going through everything I've been through, I'm afraid I'll get injured again and be out for a long time.” Not a decision simple therefore, taken not following a muscular problem but with the fear that his body could betray him during the match “I do not want to risk all this I wanted to say it here, in the presence, in front of you all, and not with. a post on social networks because it seemed the minimum to me, being here in Rome”, added the tennis player who plays at home at the Foro Italico, “it's a tournament that I haven't been able to play for three years now, it’s the tournament that made me choose to become a tennis player.” A few days earlier, the same announcement had also been made to Jannik Sinner, who revealed the persistence of the hip pain which affected him during his last outings: “After speaking again with the doctors and specialists about my hip problems , I must announce that unfortunately I will not be able to play in Rome.”
