Tennis, Berrettini at the Sardinia Open? The possibilities are growing after the forfeit in Madrid

The already delicious cake of the Sardinia Tennis Open in Cagliari could have a further icing called Matteo Berrettini. The Wimbledon 2021 finalist, after withdrawing from the Master 1000 in Madrid due to tonsillitis, could choose the Monte Urpinu tournament to best prepare for the Italian Internationals in Rome. The Cagliari tournament will start next Monday until May 5th.

”We had already spoken with Berrettini about a Wild Card – specifies the director of the Cagliari tournament, Martin Vassallo Arguello – then the victory in Marrakech changed his plans. Now, after the withdrawal in Madrid, we hope he can ask for a new invitation”.
On the other hand, the Sardinia Open would be an important test for Matteo Berrettini, given the high quality of the entrants. Sinner aside, all the best Italian tennis players will be there (from Arnaldi to Musetti and Sonego) and beyond.

Consider that the last one admitted to the draw is the Hungarian Fucsovics, recent winner at the ”250 in Bucharest” and who has just become number 53 in the world. ”Ours is a ”Challenger 175” tournament only for ”pretend” – remarks Vassallo Arguello – it has a ”Cut off” (the last member), worthy of an ATP 500”.
