‘I feel I am playing the best tennis of my career,’ reveals Matteo Berrettini at Wimbledon

Matteo Berrettini has only dropped one set on his way to his first Wimbledon quarterfinal and says he feels like he’s playing the best tennis of his career.

Berrettini arrived at Wimbledon full of confidence after winning Queens Club and has had a successful season so far, winning Belgrade, reaching the Madrid Masters final and the French Open quarter final.

His route to the quarters has largely gone unnoticed due to his draw only featuring one other seed, John Isner who was knocked out in the first round.

Beating Argentinian Guido Pella in the first round, Botic Van De Zandschulp in the second and Aljaz Bedene in the third, the Italian has quietly gone about this business, finally beating Ilya Ivashka to reach the quarters.

And the seventh seed says he’s happy with not only the progress he’s made but also the efficient way he’s won his matches.

“I feel like I’m not using a lot of energy, because I won most of my matches in three sets,” said Berrettini.

“It’s really good for me if I look at the long run. I feel [that] I am playing the best tennis of my career.

This year Berrettini has gone one step further than his last attempt in 2019, when he reached the fourth round and he said this time he has learned from that experience.

“[Two years ago] I was playing [well], but everything was kind of new. I had to adjust a little bit. Now I have more confidence for sure, more experience as well,” said Berrettini.

“I know I can achieve my best results like [I reached the] quarters in Paris [at Roland Garros and] quarters here. Obviously, the tournament is not done yet. I’m really looking forward to achieving even more.”
