I bet with maximum confidence on a match in which Federer will not lose his service more than once.
Berrettini is a reputable player at his own service, but he does not have an uncommon agility, being a massive and relatively heavy athlete.
Roger has the quality to serve very varied, both as placement and alternation of effects, often comes to the net as a result of efficient services.
The difference in intuition in the return was seen in the previous duel between the two, also from here in London, but on the Wimbledon turf, when Matteo created a single break and the save saved by the Swiss veteran.
◽️The Serbian player, even though he won the last Masters tournament in Paris, fell to second place in the ATP standings, following the Iberian Rafael Nadal.
◽️But he proved once again that he is the most prolific player on such a surface in the circuit, winning the match against Matteo Berrettini without any emotion, with an extremely clear score, 6-2 6-1.
◽️He is in a series of 6 consecutive victories, coming to London after the Paris-Bercy victory, and against Dominic Thiem again starts as a favorite.
◽️The 26-year-old Austrian is currently ranked 5th in the ATP rankings, having long been in the top 10.
◽️He is having the best season of his career so far, managing to win his first Masters tournament at Indian Wells, respectively the tournament in Barcelona, in the first part of the season, while in the last he won the home tournament in Vienna.
◽️In this tournament he surprised many people with the third victory of this season against Roger Federer, a very consistent victory, with a 7-5 double, the Austrian being very solid in the important moments of both sets.
▫️The two players have met so far 9 times, the score being 6-3 in favor of Novak Djokovic, but the last 5 clashes took place on the slag, where Thiem can balance the duel very much.
