Italian-American Model Takes on Hosting Role
Melissa Satta, the well-known Italian-American model and singer, has made a significant career change by securing a role as the host of the Ryder Cup opening ceremony. The event will take place on Thursday afternoon at Marco Simone in Rome, where Satta will present the pre-tournament event from the fan village stage.
Tom Grennan to Perform Live During Ceremony
During the opening ceremony, singer-songwriter Tom Grennan will also appear for a live performance, adding to the excitement of the event.
A Change in Role for Satta
Although this role marks a major change in Satta's career, she has previously worked as a TV presenter, notably for Sky Sport Italy. She now takes on a role previously held by Premier League icon David Ginola.
A Spectacular Hour-long Show
The opening ceremony is expected to last for approximately an hour and will include both captains introducing their teams on stage. Tradition dictates that the ceremony will conclude with the unveiling of the pairings for the opening foursomes on Friday.
From Modeling to Dating Tennis ACE
Satta is not only famous for her modeling career but is also known for dating Italian tennis ace Matteo Berrettini. The couple made their relationship public earlier this year, but Satta has faced backlash and accusations of distracting Berrettini. Trolls have even suggested that she was causing his injury problems, citing her previous claims of causing ex-husband Kevin Prince Boateng similar issues.
Satta was previously married to former Tottenham midfielder Boateng, with whom she has a son.
