Berrettini comes into this contest after beating Georgia’s Nikoloz Basilashvili in the previous round. The Italian also beat Australian Alexei Popyrin in the earlier in the tournament. It has been a very impressive for Berrettini, across surfaces, owing to which he has also booked his place in the World Tour Finals in Turin. Although the Wimbledon finalist lost early at the BNP Paribas Open, the No.3 seed has spent adequate time to get warmed up for the bigger matches this week in the Austrian capital.

Meanwhile, Carlos Alcaraz will be cock-a-hoop after beating former World No.1 Andy Murray in straight sets in the last round. Not only did he beat the Scot, but the manner in which the World No.42 out-gunned Murray was impressive. The Spanish sensation also beat crafty Brit, Dan Evans earlier in the competition. After announcing his arrival on the clay, Alcaraz has also enjoyed his time on the hard courts over the past few months. With 15 wins on the hard surface in 2021, the 18-year-old is expected to be a threat for the top seeds in Vienna.

Although Berrettini might be seen as the slight favourite, he will also feel the pressure of coming up against an inspired youngster. Interestingly, both players will also take time to get use to each other’s style of play and pattern. Therefore, it will be interesting to see who gets the break early. While Alcaraz has shown his ability to return well and cover the court, Berrettini will bank on his booming, first serve and flat forehand to find holes in the Spaniard’s game.

Match Prediction: Matteo Berrettini should win in three sets.
