Recently, Matteo Berrettini spent an evening at dinner along with his girlfriend Ajla Tomljanovic and Croat Donna Vekic. However, there was a comical incident that took place which caught the attention that evening. The moment occurred when Matteo was served a drink, which seemed like a cocktail.

Interestingly, the drink was served on a stand that had two long and thin legs. Upon seeing that, Matteo spontaneously compared the holdings to his legs, as his legs are thin too. His two companions at the table burst into laughter as they saw the funny side to it, and it was sporting of the Italian to troll himself.

Berrettini will be entering the Wimbledon Championships 2021 high on confidence after winning his ATP Masters 500 title in Queen’s last week. The 25-year-old is a versatile player and has the ability to adapt to the various surfaces played on Tour. 

His girlfriend, Ajla Tomljanovic, featured in the Australian Open 2021 followed by the French Open 2021. Unfortunately, she could not go past the second round.

Players are now focusing on the grass season

The third person on the table that evening, Donna Vekic, competed at the Australian Open and the French Open. In Melbourne, she lost in the fourth round, and in Paris, she suffered an opening-round exit.

Now that the focus has shifted to grass, players are looking forward to competing at the Wimbledon Championships 2021, especially since the event was canceled last year. 

This time, players will be living in a bubble with stern protocols to be followed for the fortnight of the event. Although there are absentees this season, superstars like Roger Federer and Serena Williams will headline the scenes. All eyes will be on this wonderful event once it begins on June 28, Monday.
