The first round of the Australian Open 2023 was very bad for Italian tennis players, but it was epic for the British star Andy Murray.
After Lorenzo Musetti, Matteo Berrettini also says goodbye to the Slam Down Under. A disastrous first round for Italian tennis, that loses two of its greatest protagonists.
Australian Open: Andy Murray vs Matteo Berrettini, the match point
After losing the first two sets, Matteo reacted well and even reversed the challenge, gaining a match point that would have given him the victory. Great chance wasted with Berrettini who sent a rather easy backhand into the net. A point that will cost him the match since Murray won the super tiebreak of the fifth set.
Murray deservedly won the challenge, demonstrating once again all his class, his talent and his grit.
Here is the match point:
