"It's incredible" - Berrettini surprised after winning in Stuttgart

Matteo Berrettini capped his return to Tour by winning his first title of the season Sunday, overcoming former World No. 1 Andy Murray 6-4, 5-7, 6-3 in the BOSS OPEN final.

The Italian missed the clay season after undergoing a minor operation on his right hand in late March but has played as he has never been away in Stuttgart, improving to 28-6 on grass. He said:

“It is unbelievable. It was obviously a goal [to win the title], but I thought it would be really, really tough. I don’t even think I played my best tennis, but that is why I am even more proud of myself. Mentally I was really tough. I did an unbelievable job to be there. I fought hard and this means a lot.”

Berrettini admitted that he was feeling quite a bit sore after the match but it's something he expected as he made his way back to tennis:

"My body is hurting a little bit. It had been three matches without matches and today was almost three hours, so I am feeling it."
