Matteo and Jannik: Good day will come

Pictured are Matteo Beretini and Janic Cinar

It’s been two months since the Australian Open and we’ve had so much fun. Reaching the semifinals of Matteo Beretini and the quarter-finals of Janic Sinar has given us the feeling (and perhaps a bit of an illusion) the feeling of starting again this year after a great 2021 whose memory is still able to warm the heart. Each of us.
A lot has happened since then, weeks have passed, tournaments have taken place and now, at the end of our “Double Sunshine”, we can say this: something is wrong.

And how can you not connect this negative phase in terms of performance and results and can be
Especially the big misfortune that has hit our two strongest players in recent times. Suffice it to say that a list of events took place: Cena took Covid in early February and was forced to leave the tournament in Rotterdam and Marseille when Beretini withdrew from the Acapulco 500 due to stomach discomfort. In March, on American soil, Cena seized Indian Wells for flu symptoms before the 16-round match against Kyrgios, and then in Miami, first Beretini gave up due to a problem in his right hand (which was later forced to undergo surgery) and finally another public retirement, this time. After five matches with Serundolo in the quarter finals.

If we add everything together, we get the result of six retreats in just a month and a half, four janitors and two meteors. If this is not bad luck!
There is no shortage of regrets as Beretini could have gone a long way in California and Miami where Cinar also had a great opportunity to replicate last year’s final due to the development of his share in the scoreboard.

Our number one weakness was the biggest weakness we know, physically, but so be it
It is equally true that he has a headache whenever he finds the best shape
It forces you to stop again, as if it were a constant. Sinner is also not doing well from a health standpoint due to the problems of covid, flu and now blisters on his legs. We know that young Redhead has recently embarked on a new technological journey, leaving Piati for Simon Vagnozi and of course all these mandatory stops will not make the already fine adaptation process more difficult, especially if you are in the middle of the season.
The “cursed” moment, if we may say so, seems to be not over yet
Monte Carlo, Madrid (where
Lost 600 points in last year’s final) and, above all, the Rome, the home tournament with which he was always associated.

Fortunately Cena seems to have recovered from his own broken blister problem
Hard Rock Stadium’s glory is a dream come true, but from now on it remains to be seen whether he will be able to avoid other unpleasant dangers.
The thing that doesn’t come out of the result clearly or at least as much as they don’t like themselves, the thing that leaves a bitter taste in the mouth is not being able to fight to the best of one’s ability. We’ve already seen Beretini play so badly in the Indian Wells (where the alleged split with Azla Tomljanovic was probably also affected) and in the Miami Cinema with the great match against Kyrgios, he always defended himself for his extraordinary mental strength, for his idiosyncrasy to defeat Not published. On the other hand, recovery from all these ailments is not easy and can affect the body both in training and especially in sports.
It is said that patience is a virtue of the strong and it will be of great use to us at this stage and especially to those who are directly involved. The quality of the two players is not disputed as there is no doubt about their improvement and desire to reach higher and higher.
The “macumba” that someone seems to have thrown at us will eventually lose its effect and we will finally be able to return to the role that we now have.

Obviously nothing sanctioned or deserved has been taken, but it will be the work of our two main representatives
Try to get back to that high level that they have already shown many times on their ropes.
The night is suddenly full of clouds, but soon Jeffrey’s breath will come to take them away, and so we’ll see them again, the stars that have returned to shine in the Italian sky after a long, long time, and world tennis.
