Despite a recent spout of injuries, Matteo Berrettini will return to Wimbledon next week. The Italian professional tennis player, who had to pull out of the French Open and Queen's due to a stomach muscle tear, is set to land his feet firmly on the grass of the All England Club.
Wimbledon means a lot to the Italian. Not only was it in 2019 that he faced his idol Roger Federer there for the first time, but Berrettini reached his first Grand Slam final in 2021 when he got to the men's Wimbledon singles final. Which is objectively impressive. And in doing so, he became the first-ever Italian player to contest a Wimbledon final, where he was battling it out against Novak Djokovic (who ultimately took home the trophy after winning three sets to one).
He's already been sighted getting his practice in a week ahead of his return to SW19, while he's already firmly scored the best kit for his court appearances. Berrettini will be decked out in a capsule collection he's designed in collaboration with German powerbrand Boss. Back at the beginning of 2022, in line with Boss' big creative overhaul, he was introduced as a global brand ambassador. For the 2023 Wimbledon tournament he's set to wear a form-fitting, zip-up polo shirt with striped trims and a subtle all-over Boss monogram, a pair of tennis shorts cut mid-thigh and a cap. Of course, it will all be in crisp white in keeping with Wimbledon's strict dress code. Off-court, Berrettini will also wear a custom Boss tracksuit.
But, you don't need to have the glory of the world number six to dress like a champ. Boss and Berrettini are dropping the entire range of slick tennis separates for anyone to wear. The collection comprises the pieces that Berrettini will be wearing on court, and will also include the jumbo kit bag that he's going to whip his racket out from at every game.
The collection is out now at boss.com, and scroll down for some of the sickest kit to ever grace Wimbledon.
