Berrettini is 4-2 this season.

Pablo Carreno Busta battles hard to claim a 3rd round win over Sebastian Korda, defeating the American 6-4, 7-5, 6-7(8), 6-3 in 3 hours and 27 minutes.

Matteo will come into the tie with a career hardcourt record of 110-52 and was 14-5 on the surface last season while finishing the 2021 season with a record of 41-12 across all surfaces. Pablo will take the court with a career hardcourt record of 151-79 and was 14-8 on the surface last season and had a 38-18 record for the season across all surfaces.

Looking at these numbers and considering their form in the 2021 and the little of the 2022 season, it looks to be a balanced tie given their form this week. It would all come down to winning the crucial moments that will eventually decide the tie. Pablo gets the edge to be the favourite for this tie but Berrettini’s massive forehand can certainly turn the match anytime.

Prediction: Pablo Carreno Busta to win in 5-sets.
