Matteo Berrettini admitted he was trying not to cry after successfully defending his Queen's title from last year with a straight-sets win over Filip Krajinovic. The No 2 seed only just returned to the Tour last week after three months out due to a hand injury.
He beat Andy Murray in his first tournament back to win the Stuttgart Open and took that form into Queen's this week. Berrettini beat Cameron Norrie in last year's final and faced a different test this time around against Krajinovic.
But the Serbian was no match for Berrettini as he strolled to victory to keep up his perfect grasscourt record this year. Berrettini now joins illustrious company in defending his Queen's title and the 26-year-old joked: "I forgot how heavy it [the trophy] was".
But he was also clearly emotional as he stood up on the court holding his trophy as he fought back the tears.
