Berrettini Brings 2023 Season To A Close

Italian finishes year with 12-11 record

Former Wimbledon finalist Matteo Berrettini has announced that he will not play again this year.

The 27-year-old Italian, who has slipped to No. 90 in the Pepperstone ATP Rankings, has not competed since the US Open, where he retired from his second-round match with an ankle injury. Berrettini, who last year had surgery on his right hand, also missed most of this year’s clay season with an abdominal injury. He will finish the year with a 12-11 match record.

“Despite training at a high level for a few weeks my medical team has advised it would be a risk to compete in the final tournaments of the ATP season,” Berrettini wrote on Instagram. “It has been very difficult to accept this but I need to do what is best for next season and my long term career. I will take this opportunity to reset, re-build and start the year fully fit and healthy.

“It has been an extremely tough year but I’m looking forward to a full and successful season in 2024.

“I will stay in close contact with the Davis Cup captain and make myself available to support team Italy in any way I can for the Finals.”
