    He does look a bit Brando-esque in that particular picture. Nice find. :)

    However, he's the Italian tennis player of Italian and Brazilian ancestry Matteo Berrettini. I watched him play a few days ago. Didn't get past Nadal, but a good player, and he seems like a lovely young man from the interviews, as well as lovely looking.

    I looked up his ancestry because despite the extremely Tuscan surname he didn't look Tuscan at all. Nice combination. :)

    @Angela
    My wife is a great fan of tennis. She also plays (as amateur, of course). Sometimes I watch games because of her, but I had never heard of Matteo till now.

    His mother is half Brazilian.

    You would know better than I would, but to my eye he looks more like certain Brazilians than like Italians, and more Brazilian than his mother. It's just something about the particular combination of features, although I may be wrong. Mainly it was the very Tuscan surname which seemed incongruous.

    Children don't always look like their parents. My niece looks more like me than my own children, and nothing whatsoever like either of her parents. Anyone seeing her would swear she was mine. :)

    He's a really well-spoken, humble, respectful young man, and, as I said, a really good player, but Nadal is almost impossible to beat on that court.

    Yes, there are men in Brazil who look like him. He could pass for Brazilian. The variation in Brazil is really big though.

    As for your niece, I understand perfectly what you're saying. The same with my sister, who is not similar to my mother, at all. Instead, she's a "clone" of a paternal aunt.

    That was a great game. It's not easy to beat Monfils. The young Berrettini really seems a promise. :)

    Yes, Matteo Berrettini is a 1/4 Tuscan or 1/2 Tuscan, the rest is a mix including Brazilian.

    His brother (on the right) Jacopo Berrettini, who is also a tennis player. Jacopo looks like their father.





    Their father, Luca Berrettini, who is fully or half Tuscan born and raised in Rome (his accent is clearly not Tuscan but it's more from Rome). Their father Luca is another tennis player.

    You never know from where a child's alleles for appearance will come. I've already mentioned my niece looks like me, not much like her parents at all. One of my first cousins looks just like my father except a little darker, more so than my brother does. After my father died I found it difficult to be around my cousin for quite a while; it was too painful.

    It's all a crapshoot.

    Yes, the father doesn't sound Tuscan at all, although he certainly fits there in terms of type. Lots of variation in Toscana, but not people who look like Matteo usually. If you were looking for dark Tuscans, they might look like this. Well, if they were fortunate enough to be really beautiful. :) I do wish he'd cheer up a little.

    Marco Mengoni is from Lazio, though. But yes, lots of variation anyhwere.

    My mistake. I know Mengonis from Toscana and thought the name might be largely Tuscan. Instead, it seems pretty widespread in Toscana, Marche, and Lazio.
