Matteo Berrettini, a Wimbledon finalist in 2021, is now competing in Indian Wells. In his first round in the desert, he easily dispatched Alejandro Tabilo, and in the following round, he will face Taylor Fritz.
Berrettini recently lauded his fellow Italian, Jannik Sinner, in an interview. Sinner’s qualification for the Nitto ATP Finals would be wonderful for Italian tennis, according to Matteo Berrettini.

Berrettini voiced his desire for Jannik Sinner to qualify for the ATP Finals in a recent interview.
“It would be great for Italian tennis if Sinner played the Nitto ATP Finals. He is very young and he is fighting for this goal,” he said.
“We would play for the fans and it would be great, also because we are two different players. Our tennis is healthy.” (Translated via Google Translate)
#Berrettini: “Sarebbe grandioso per il tennis italiano se #Sinner giocasse le Nitto ATP Finals. Lui è giovanissimo e sta combattendo per questo traguardo.

Both Sinner and Berrettini have had a fantastic start to the 2021 season and are expecting to compete in the Nitto ATP Finals.
So far in the 2021 season, the Italian Jannik Sinner has won three ATP championships and one doubles title.
He began his season by winning the Great Ocean Road Open, his second ATP title of his career. Following that, he won the Atlanta Open with Reilly Opelka of America, defeating Steve Johnson and Jordan Thompson in the finals.
Jannik Sinner began his campaign as the fifth seed at the Washington Open.
In the finals of the competition, he defeated Mackenzie McDonald to win his third ATP singles title. As a result, in August 2021, the Italian entered the top 15 ranks.
Sinner, on the other hand, successfully defended his championship at the Sofia Open, defeating Gael Monfils of France in the final.
Sinner must have entered the India Wells as a top contender for the title after achieving these titles. In the round of 32, he’ll be up against John Isner.
