Italian tennis player Matteo Berrettini continued his incredible run of form as he defeated Dutch opponent Botic van de Zandschulp 6-4, 6-3 to reach the final of the Queens Club final. But after the game, Berrettini was put in an awkward position as a fan asked him to marry him.
The Italian was talking about his performance in a rain-interrupted game, where the fan shouted, “Matteo, will you Marry me!” Responding to this comment, Berrettini cheekily said, “Let me think about it!” This win against Zandschulp marked his 19th win in his last 20 grass-court matches. In this run, his only loss was in the Wimbledon final against Novak Djokovic.
I am really happy and looking forward to the final: Berrettini
In the post-match interview, he addressed that this was his best performance of the week. “It was a really tough match. We stopped for the rain. I had a lot of chances. It was windy again and really tough to play but I definitely think it was the best match of the week, so I am really happy and looking forward to the final,” Berrettini said.
I am in this final - it is a dream come true: Krajinović
Similarly, Berrettini’s final opponent Filip Krajinović also expressed that he is ready for the match despite not enjoying playing on grass court. He said, "To be honest, I don't like to play on grass and every year I find a way to skip the tournaments.”
“To come to Wimbledon and lose in the first round for the past 10 years... maybe it's going to change now and I'm going to start to like it! I just can't believe that I am in this final - it is a dream come true," Krajinovic added.
