Italian Matteo Berrettini talked about his favorite surface and amazing slices.
“Now it’s difficult to say what coverage I have. I said before the US Open that it is clay and grass. Before the grass, I called it only clay. Now I like everything. It all started four years ago. I trained a lot on the clay, but the trainer told me to work play on fast surfaces. And I increased the number of matches on hard to 70%. Of course, my punches work on this surface, but because of growth I find it difficult.
As for my punches, at the age of 17 I injured my left wrist and could only perform slices. My mentor also specialized in them and delivered a blow. I think I could go out to the net more often. I intend to further work on this aspect, although I already feel pretty confident, “US Open press service quotes Berrettini.
