Alexander Zverev v Matteo Berrettini Head to Head

The pair have played each other twice before, in the same event, the Rome Masters. Zverev won their meeting in straights sets in 2018, and Berrettini returned the favour this year.

Zverev, Statement Win over Federer

It is a mark of how disappointing a year this has been for Zverev that his quarter-final victory over Roger Federer on Friday was the first time in 2019 that he had beaten another player in the top ten. Not that it was plain sailing. Having taken the first set, the German had to watch as his Swiss opponent battled back and clinched the second in the tie-break, before he was able to secure a vital break of serve in the third, and hang on to see out the match.

Despite winning his 11th career title in Geneva, and reaching the Acapulco final, getting to the semi-finals of a Masters event is arguably his best result of the year so far. If he can go on to lift the title on Sunday, then he will have something to salvage from what has been a mediocre 2019 otherwise for the German.

Berrettini, Maiden Masters Semi-Final

This is by far the furthest that Berrettini has ever got at a Masters event, with a third round at the Italian Open his previous best. And it comes just six weeks after he became the first Italian in 44 years to reach the semi-finals of the US Open at Flushing Meadows.

When this is added to the two titles he has won this year – in Budapest and Stuttgart – and his final appearance in Munich, it all adds up to a good year for the 23 year old from Rome.

He reached this stage after a very impressive quarter-final win over the number four seed, Dominic Thiem, on Friday evening, beating the Austrian in straight sets, coming through a tough first set tie break before forcing the one break of serve he needed in the second to close out the victory.

Zverev v Berrettini Predictions & Tips

Zverev is the slight odds-on favourite to win this match at 9/13, whilst Berrettini is priced at 11/8. Zverev may feel that, now that he has beaten Federer, the hard work is done, but the Italian has already proved his ability to handle the big occasion numerous times this year. It might be a very tight match.

Tip: Zverev to win in three sets: 27/20 (888Sport)
