Matteo Berrettini is enjoying his time off-court before he gears up for the Indian Wells which begins next week. The Italian is making the most of his time in California and was recently seen at the match between LA Lakers and Golden State Warriors.
Berrettini posted several clips of the match in his Instagram stories. He shared a few videos of LeBron James and also shared a snap with American Boxer Floyd Mayweather.
The Lakers vs Warriors was a star-studded affair with many notable sporting stars in attendance. Berrettini was joined by fellow ATP players Nick Kyrgios, Francis Tiafoe. All of them were cheering on for LA Lakers led by Lebron James, who later on went to win the match, snapping a 4-match losing streak against the Warriors.
Matteo Berrettini’s season so far
Berrettini has had a mixed season so far. The Italian started his season at the ATP Cup where he notched only one win out of 3 matches, which was against Daniil Medvedev. At the Australian Open, the 25-year-old was not in his top form but eventually reached the semi-finals after being stretched to the distance in most of his matches. Out of his matches in Melbourne, only one was a straight-set victory. In the semis, he lost to eventual champion Rafael Nadal. Berrettini entered the Rio Open as the top seed but his title fight ended in the quarter-finals itself with a three-set loss to Carlos Alcaraz, who then went on to win his maiden ATP title.
Berrettini had to withdraw from the ATP Finals last year due to injury and had to end his season as a result. There is no respite for him from injuries this year as well, he had to withdraw from his opening round clash in Acapulco with an abdominal injury. Now, he will look to bring his season back on track as he set sights on having a better outing at the Indian Wells, which begins next week.
