Berrettini dissolves his reservations: he returns to Acapulco

The Roman, slipped to no. 22 of the world will play the ATP 500 in Mexico from February 27. For Sinner restart from Montpellier on the 6th, Musetti in Argentina from the 13th

Matteo Berrettini will play the ATP 500 in Acapulco, Mexico from February 27th. The Roman, now Italian number 3, will be the last to take the field among the big blues. Sinner will play on February 6 in Montpellier, while Musetti’s return is scheduled for the following week in Argentina, on red in Buenos Aires.

The left foot problem that had held the Roman back in the final of the ATP 250 in Naples dragged on for a long time and did not allow him to make adequate winter preparation. He worked with Vincenzo Santopadre for about a week in Montecarlo, and now the player is continuing his preparation in Milan with his brother Jacopo: “Finally we have a period to work with a bit of continuity – explained the historic coach of the current number 22 in the world – In Melbourne we had 720 points to defend, we pulled our teeth and now, that there are very few points, we can plan our recovery”. Acapulco is the most logical choice from an American perspective compared to the alternative of Dubai, where instead Lorenzo Sonego will play and where both Djokovic and Nadal are enrolled: “Fortunately Matteo is now physically intact – concluded Santopadre – so we will be able to train well. We don’t see Time to get back on the field.”


South America is instead the destination of Lorenzo Musetti who this year has chosen to play swing on clay after the Australian Open where he went out in the first round in the fifth set against Lloyd Harris. First engagement in Buenos Aires (from 13 February), for the ATP 250 which will also see the seasonal return of Carlos Alcaraz: “The shoulder is fine – explained coach Tartarini -, now it’s healed and we’ve trained. We’ll start on the 7th February for Argentina, and it will be a long 7-week away game. After Baires we will be in Rio de Janeiro and then we will go to Santiago, before playing Indian Wells and Miami.”
