Opposed this Friday in the quarter -finals of the Stuttgart tournament, Matteo Berrettini and Lorenzo Sonego exchanged a long applause at the net as they saluted.

He wants to win all the winning matches (laughs) »Lorenzo launched a smile to his lips before leaving the word at his fingertips.
“It was a special confrontation because we have known both since the lizards, since we played one against the other even when we were kids. So it was not easy to surprise him. He was one of the rare friends I had on the circuit, so it was a special match. »
