Lorenzo Sonego Defeats Matteo Berrettini in Stuttgart Open in Two Sets

Stuttgart Open

Matteo Berrettini, winner of the 2022 Queen’s title against Serbia’s Filip Krajinovic for two consecutive years, faced a straight-set defeat by Lorenzo Sonego during his first match post-injury at the Stuttgart Open. This is his second loss on grass out of 22 matches, signalling a less than ideal start to his grass season.

The 2021 Wimbledon finalist was defeated 6-1 6-2 by his Italian counterpart. Berrettini, who had to withdraw from the Monte Carlo Masters in April due to an abdominal injury, was competing for the first time since his recovery. His performance in Stuttgart contrasted with his impressive track record on grass prior to this. He was also absent from Wimbledon last year after testing positive for COVID-19.

In another tournament, the ‘s-Hertogenbosch in the Netherlands, Canadian Milos Raonic celebrated his first Tour-level victory after a nearly two-year hiatus due to injuries. Raonic overcame Serbian Miomir Kecmanovic 6-3 6-4. The 32-year-old former world number three, who was the Wimbledon runner-up in 2016, expressed his gratitude for being able to play again in front of an audience.

Also at Stuttgart, Lorenzo Musetti, 21, world number 17, started off strong with a 7-6 (7-4) 6-3 victory over Croatia’s Borna Gojo, following his successful journey to the French Open fourth round. Meanwhile, France’s Richard Gasquet, 36, outperformed American Christopher Eubanks 7-6 (7-2) 6-4, setting up a second-round duel with Greek top seed Stefanos Tsitsipas, who had a first-round bye.

Elsewhere, the Nottingham Open saw Watson emerge victorious over Niemeier. Simultaneously, Boulter has replaced Raducanu as the new British number one.
