Matteo Berrettini is 9-6 in the 2022 season.

Fourth seed will be replaced by a lucky loser

Italian Matteo Berrettini withdrew from the Miami Open presented by Itau on Thursday evening due to a right hand injury. The fourth seed will be replaced by a lucky loser, who will play Argentine Juan Manuel Cerundolo, who eliminated Serbian Dusan Lajovic 6-3, 7-5 in the first round.

Berrettini is 9-6 on the season, with his most recent appearance coming at the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells, where he lost against Serbian Miomir Kecmanovic in the fourth round after defeating Holger Rune and Lloyd Harris.

The Italian’s best result of the season came at the Australian Open, where he eliminated reigning Intesa Sanpaolo Next Gen ATP Finals champion Carlos Alcaraz and ousted two former Top 10 players — Pablo Carreno Busta and Gael Monfils — en route to the semi-finals.

The 25-year-old is a two-time Nitto ATP Finals competitor who has won five ATP Tour titles. However, he will have to wait to pursue his first ATP Masters 1000 trophy.
