In a special interview with the Wimbledon Channel, Ajla finally ended the mystery of them not playing together.

Well, because we have been planning to play for the longest time and we always find the reason why not. But this time, the rain screwed us up because we have to play back-to-back. For me, it’s not a big problem even though I have to play women’s doubles and then for him, I mean he is playing best of five,” said Ajla revealing the reason why they did not pair at Wimbledon 2021.

Matteo Berrettini entered the Wimbledon 2021 as the 7th seed being the World No.9 whereas Alja is the World No. 75 in the WTA rankings. Both Berrettini and Alja are through to their first-ever quarter-finals of the Grand Slam at the All-England Club.
