From tennis player to pop icon. But always with tennis as the guiding thought of his life. Matteo Berrettini, after the semifinal at the Australian Open in Melbourne, experienced another moment of great popularity throughout Italy, as had already happened to him after the final of Wimbledon 2021.
Back then, Matteo had the privilege of being able to celebrate with the national football team, winner of the European title. This time, he even ended up on the stage of Sanremo, the show par excellence of the Italian television that ended last Saturday.
The Roman tennis player, elegant as ever, did not seem at all confused in front of the cameras of the most watched show on national networks. On the contrary, he knew how to look at ease on the stage, then recounting his feelings about it on the radio. “I train to perform in front of the tennis audience – said Matteo – but this one lived in Sanremo was an important and unexpected emotion, too. Music is an integral part of my life, during the long journeys from tournament to tournament or during training. I really like Coez, an artist I’ve been following for a while and who often accompanies me with his voice on my trips».
Berrettini is the first of the eight champions to have confirmed his presence at Tennis on the Racetrack 2023 in Imola, from an idea of CC LAB Consultant Ltd, organized by CC LAB Italia Srl in synergy with Enzo and Dino Ferrari International Racetrack of Imola: a privilege for all those who will have the opportunity to see it live.
