Who is Matteo Berrettini’s girlfriend?

Matteo Berrettini has been dating Australian tennis player Ajla Tomljanovic since October 2019.

Tomljanovic is a famous tennis player in her own right and has reached a career-high singles ranking of no.39.

Born in Zagreb, Croatia, the 28-year old reached the fourth round of the French Open in 2014.

In 2021 she reached the women’s singles semi-finals at Wimbledon – her best Grand Slam finish to date. She lost to eventual champion Ashleigh Barty 6-1, 6-3.

In 2018, she received Australian citizenship. Before dating Matteo Berrettini, Ajla Tomljanovic dated fellow Aussie tennis star Nick Kyrgios. The couple competed in several doubles matches together but called time on their relationship in July 2017.

Berrettini spoke out about isolation from Ajla Tomljanovic after Australian Open last year

Before the 2021 Australian Open in January, Matteo Berrettini spoke about life in quarantine and being separated from Tomljanovic despite staying in the same hotel.

Players were forced to self-isolate for 14 days on arrival in the country because of the government’s covid restrictions.

Berrettini offered a glimpse into the lives of tennis stars in quarantine, telling Eurosport: “The only complicated thing for me is that Ajla is six floors below me but, despite the negative tests and everything, we’re not allowed to see each other.”

He reached the fourth round of the Australian Open but withdrew from the tournament after suffering abdominal pain.
