It is a critical week in the Pepperstone ATP Live ATP Race To Turin, with only three spots remaining in the Nitto ATP Finals, which will be played from 13-20 November. Both eighth-placed Felix Auger-Aliassime and 15th-placed Matteo Berrettini will try to improve their standing at the UniCredit Firenze Open in Florence.
But first, the top two seeds in the ATP 250 visited the Piazzale Michelangelo, which looks over the city.
“It’s my first time in Florence and the view from up here is amazing,” Auger-Aliassime said. “It’s a beautiful city and I’m very happy that the tournament decided to take us to this beautiful spot.”
It was a special moment for the Italian Berrettini, who has a family connection to the city.
“Florence is very special for me as my grandfather is from this wonderful city,” Berrettini said. “It’s always a great pleasure to play in front of the Italian fans.”
