Matteo Berrettini's stardom continues to grow around the world. But for the Rome native, there's no place like home—and nothing like Italian cuisine.

The 25-year-old is set to make a surprise television appearance—his second within a month—as a guest judge in the latest season of MasterChef Italy, a spin-off of the popular MasterChef cooking competition franchise. The Italian, who reached the semi-finals of the Australian Open this year, posted a sneak-peek of the episode alongside the other three judges: Bruno Barbieri, Antonino Cannavacciuolo, and Giorgio Locatelli.

"What a fantastic experience to be a guest on the outdoor episode of MasterChef," Berrettini wrote on social media in Italian. "It was fun to taste the dishes of the aspiring chefs... Good thing no one asked me to cook seriously!"

Berrettini also recently made a live appearance at the Sanremo Music Festival, the most popular song contest and awards ceremony in Italy.


The Italian's profile has certainly been on the rise since his appearance in last year's Wimbledon final.

Not only will he appear on a famous TV show, but he was also profiled by GQ this week, discussing how he became one of the best players in the world. Of course, he was dressed head to in Hugo Boss for the interview—Berrettini is the German fashion house's first global brand ambassador in tennis.
