As Berrettini was describing the tough conditions he faced during the match, some guy from the crowd shouted, “Matteo, will you marry me?”

In reply, the tennis player gave a funny reply, which made the whole crowd laugh. He said, “Let me think about it.”

Last year, Berrettini showed his tremendous grass-court prowess, as he reached the final of the Wimbledon. Unfortunately, he lost to Novak Djokovic in the final after a tough battle. This year, he was in pretty good form till the Indian Wells. After that, he has gone through a surgery on his right hand. As a result, he had to miss the entire clay-court season, including the French Open.

Last week, he returned to action at the Stuttgart Open, where he won the tournament by beating the 2-time Wimbledon champion Andy Murray in the final.

Now, he is in the final of the Queen’s Championships as well, where he will face the Serbian tennis player Filip Krajinovic; the final will take place tomorrow. If he wins this final, it will be his second title in a row on the green surface. Safe to say, it will also boost his confidence greatly for the Wimbledon Championships.
