“Very good match, prepared very well. Today I felt very good and confident. I entered the field convinced that I could play my game. He played quite badly and this favored me. I played break points well and always managed to push in the decisive moments. In the round of 16 perhaps against Alcaraz? For now I’m enjoying this success.” So, on SuperTennis, Matteo Arnaldi spoke after his success over the British Cameron Norrie, which earned him the pass to the round of 16 of the US Open.
