Matteo Berrettini wants to take a cautious approach with his return to tennis after a hand surgery. Berrettini said that he will limit his play on clay and focus on the grass court season.
Speaking of his plans for the next few months, Berrettini told Eurosport Italia:
I don’t want to rush anything, I will only go to Paris if I am in a position to go all the way. At the moment it is more no than yes, in that case I will go directly to the tournaments on the grass.
Last year, Berrettini reached the Wimbledon finals where he lost to Novak Djokovic. He also won the Queen’s Club Championships, his first ATP 500 title.
Grass is a surface well suited for Matteo Berrettini who relies on his big serve and solid forehand to win points. His backhand continues to be a weakness that opponents often exploit during important points in a match.
