«Melissa (Satta, ed.) and I are no longer together. I can say that we had a beautiful, intense relationship. We have the greatest respect for each other. I have to thank her for this year spent together despite all the difficulties.” As Matteo Berrettini, Italian tennis player and former number six, makes official the breakup of his relationship with the showgirl, model and TV presenter Melissa Satta in a press conference. The Italian tennis player also clarified his program on the circuit.

«I don’t know how I will feel when I return, 2024 certainly won’t be the year I chase a Grand Slam title. If it then arrived I would sign in blood. The approach will be different and I hope to get as far as possible at Wimbledon because I really care about it”, he continues during a zoom conference from Monte Carlo where he is carrying out intensive preparation. «What interests me is returning to compete with the best. I won’t go to Indian Wells but I will leave from Phoenix and Miami and then there are the clay tournaments. I want to play in Rome, where I haven’t been for two years and it hurts me a lot – he says – the dream remains that of winning a big tournament. 2024 will not be the year in which I will chase a grand slam tournament – he added in the press conference – I will try to get as far ahead as possible because it is the tournament I care about most. Sinner? He is obviously one of the favourites, if he isn’t… Then there is the clay season which is very expensive, but he is one of the favourites.”
