Paulo Dybala and Matteo Berrettini, two great champions protagonists in their respective sports. This time they were the protagonists of a joint interview under the ATP Tour channels. The two told some experiences about their career and, on the sidelines of Italian Serie A soccer match Juventus-Fiorentina (Matteo supports Fiorentina) a curious curtain was staged.
Among other things, Matteo will be in Turin for the ATP Finals in a few days and the attacker was very kind in inviting him to his house. Berrettini and Dybala talked about their relationship with the coaches and while the Argentine explained that he would be fired in case of jokes, Matteo grinned: "I have a relationship almost like a son with a father with Vincenzo Santopadre.
I happen to record him asleep or wake him up. Of course, unlike you, I pay for it, so I can get away with it." The two were protagonists of historical finals and both were defeated: Dybala lost the Champions League final 2017 against Real Madrid while this year Matteo lost to Wimbledon final against the number one at world Novak Djokovic.
He revealed: "Before the match I had knots in my stomach, they wanted to force me to eat but it was tough. I knew it was very tough against Djokovic, he had played over 30 Grand Slam finals while for me it was the first.
In the locker room he would relax with headphones and music and I couldn't even eat, I remember that he was dizzy and my hands were sweating before the match." Two different sports but a common passion for Berrettini and Dybala: the Swiss and world tennis legend Roger Federer.
We have known Matteo's passion for the Swiss champion for years and even Dybala has revealed that he idolizes Roger, Paulo has in fact confirmed: "Sometimes to watch his matches I would skip football matches. I've never met him in person but one day I'd like to do it."
Matteo confirmed instead:" I've never hidden my passion for Roger Federer, I love the way he makes his every play seem easy, he seems like Ronaldinho in soccer."
Is Charlotte Flair leaving WWE?
This week in Writing With Russo, a format where the former WWE booker analyzes the main topics of WWE and AEW, Russo spoke about the situation between the McMahon company and Charlotte Flair.
According to the man, in fact, the Queen could ask for his release shortly, with the WWE who, however, will not want to grant it to him, forcing her to still respect the years she has on the contract, which we know to be a little longer, even if we do not have the precise number.
These are his words: "So now we're going to play this little game of chess. Probably, I think, she'll ask for her release, and I don't think they'll let her. They'll make her life hell. I don't know the terms of her contract, brother.
I don't know how long he's under contract, but in the end, brother, he's probably going to have to use it until that contract is done. " Russo himself also said a few days ago: "When you get to the point that you are unhappy and you don't want to work for that company anymore, and you make it up in your mind… Let's take a look at Charlotte Flair, brother.
Her husband [boyfriend] is in AEW, WWE has treated her father like shit about her over the years. Brother, you can make any price of any kind to Tony Khan [president AEW ed], any price, and you know it." Russo also said that no amount of money would have been enough to entice Charlotte Flair to stay if she had already decided to leave WWE psychologically, remembering her days in WCW.
"I negotiated a two-year contract for a million dollars, like. For two years, because I was going to save everything and was going to end it, plus brother, I got bonuses, incentives and things like that. I swear to God, Chris , three months later, three months later, I was on the phone with my lawyer and I said, 'I don't care what you have to do, get me out of this deal.'
And brother, I don't have Charlotte Flair's money, I don't have the money of a wrestler, but there was two years, two million dollars and I was like, get me out of this. So, money doesn't matter. All the money in the world won't make her happy."
