Matteo is 28 years old, from Ceprano, Italy, and has been ranked as high as #667 ATP in Singles, and #423 ATP in Doubles. He played four years of college tennis at the University of Tennessee, where he was on one of the best teams in the country; they lost in the finals of NCAA’s to USC. Talking to Matteo was cool for me because he’s 28 and still out here playing Futures full time, playing league matches and coaching to help cover his costs; he has no intentions of stopping to get a “real job”. He loves the life he’s built for himself through tennis, and knows that something good will come from all the connections he has made while traveling once his playing career is over.
