Matteo Berrettini's net worth: Wimbledon finalist will bag $2.4M if he beats Novak Djokovic
Matteo Berrettini has already smashed a huge record and become the one to beat after defeating Polish player Hubert Hurkacz in the Wimbledon semi-finals. He became the first Italian tennis player -- male or female -- to make it to the Wimbledon finals and will be facing World No 1 Novak Djokovic on center court at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in London. He is currently ranked No 9 by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP). The 25-year-old player, who is dating Australian tennis player Ajla Tomljanovic, will jump up on the ranking chart to become World No 3 in case he wins.
Berrettini became the highest-achieving player from his country in 2019 after he became World No 8 in 2019. Corrado Barazzutti held that spot back in 1978. He beat French tennis player Gaël Monfils at the 2019 US Open and became the 2nd Italian semi-finalist in tournament history since Barazzutti in 1977. The same year he also won an ATP Tour title without dropping serve at Stuttgart on grass. Now Berrettini stands to face Djokovic in the Wimbledon men's finals, and winning the championship won't just win him the title or up his rankings, but also make him richer by a couple of millions. Here's how much Berrettini is worth and how much money he will bag if he wins against Djokovic.
