I hope it gets even better, I have to believe it“: Said Berrettini at the end of the match against Hurkacz. “I have no words, it will take me a couple of hours to figure out what I did. I’m very happy, my family has arrived, I have all my team close by, it’s fantastic. It is too big a dream, I never would have imagined. After the 3rd set, which I thought I could win, I told myself that I had to react and the result came. When I played center-back against Federer two years ago, I lost a lot but I still enjoyed it. That experience helped me win today ”.
