Italy's Matteo Berrettini, the runner-up of the 2021 Wimbledon, has pulled out of the ongoing Championships after testing COVID-19 positive. He is the second player to withdraw from the grass-court major after Croatia's Marin Cilic. The former confirmed the same through a heartfelt note on Instagram. Berrettini, who lost to Novak Djokovic in the 2021 final, was supposed to face Cristian Garín (first round).
