Carlos Alcaraz vs Matteo Berrettini – Match Predictions
Things are heating up at Wimbledon as the world No. 1 will take on Berrettini, who is playing excellent despite a recent injury.
Carlos Alcaraz -3.5
Every previous match between these two players has seen drama, and that will probably be the case this time as well. Berrettini is still in the tournament even though his appearance was questionable after missing significant time this season. Alcaraz is on top of his form, and it is pretty unlikely Berrettini will be able to pull out another amazing performance like he did against Zverev. The Spaniard will be ready to take advantage of every given opportunity and will win this one by covering the -3.5 games spread.
First set over 9.5 games
Both players will start strong in the match, and the opening set will set the tone for the entire match. Berrettini is serving well all week long and will be able to hold to it in the opener and take it over 9.5 games.
Carlos Alcaraz vs Matteo Berrettini Preview
Alcaraz still remembers the loss to Berrettini in the decisive tiebreak at the Australian Open and will want to deliver the bill to the Italian. Berrettini has nothing to lose as he already beat all the odds this year at Wimbledon.
Alcaraz is coming off a 6-3, 6-7, 6-3, 7-5 win over Nicolas Jarry in the third round, which was his first lost set so far in the tournament. The Spaniard previously defeated Jeremy Chardy and Alexandre Muller in straight sets.
