He released a statement that read, “Hi everyone I have some stiffness in my neck over the last few days so have decided to withdraw from Paris Bercy. I would like to make sure I am 100% ready to compete in Torino for the ATP Finals. Thanks for all the support and see you in Torino.”

Matteo Berrettini sets his sights on Turin 

Since Matteo has already qualified for the ATP Finals. It is wise for him not to compete in Paris. Lately, he has played a lot of tennis and for him to take this break is a good decision. 

Coming to tennis, Berrettini was last seen in Vienna. After winning the first couple of matches, the Italian player came across a roadblock when he faced Carlos Alcaraz. The Spaniard won the match in three intense sets. He has already had a great season as he reached the final of a Grand Slam event for the first time at the Wimbledon Championships 2021.
