Matteo Berrettini vs Gael Monfils: Match Preview
Matteo Berrettini has had a somewhat rocky start to his Australian Open 2022 campaign as he has not won a single match till now in straight sets. He will come into the match after a straight-sets victory over Pablo Carreno Busta in the fourth round. The Italian has had a solid 2021 season. The current World No.7 won his first ATP 500 title at the Queen’s Club Championship, which was the biggest title of his career so far. He also reached the final of the Madrid Open, where he lost to world No.3 Alexander Zverev. The 25-year-old also made it to the ATP finals, where he was unfortunately forced to withdraw after an injury in the first round.
Gael Monfils is coming into the match after a dominating straight-set victory over Miomir Kecmanovic in the fourth round of the Australian Open 2022. At the previous attempt in the tournament in 2021, the Frenchman lost to Emil Ruusuvuori. The Frenchman then reached the second round of the French Open 2021 too, eventually losing to Mikael Ymer. The veteran was last seen at the ATP-500 Adelaide International 1 2022 as he went on to win the tournament, making a strong start to the season despite his injury struggles over the past couple of years.
