Matteo Berrettini vs Aljaz Bedene: Preview
Matteo Berrettini is enjoying some superb form at the Wimbledon Championships 2021. The Italian player has lost just a single set so far and recently crushed Botic van de Zandschulp in straight sets in the second round of the tournament.
Similarly, Aljaz Bedene too has been phenomenal on the grass court and is yet to lose a set in the Grand Slam. He recently steamrolled over Japan’s Yoshihito Nishioka where he lost just three games in the entire match.
While Bedene will find it hard to return the high serves of Berrettini, he can cause a lot of damage to the Italian with his forehand. He is one of the players who doesn’t give much room to his opponents and thus, Berrettini will have to play some exceptional backhands in order to give himself any chance during the match.
Matteo Berrettini vs Aljaz Bedene: Head-to-Head
As of now, Berrettini leads the head-to-head battle 2-1. On grass too, he is 1-0 ahead of Bedene as he was able to defeat him in four sets when they last crossed their paths in the first round of the Wimbledon Championships 2019.
Matteo Berrettini vs Aljaz Bedene: Prediction
After winning the Queen’s Club Championships 2021, Berrettini will surely begin the match as the favorite player. He has proved himself on grass this year and has played some really good slices and cheeky drop shots as well.
However, Bedene surely has the potential of beating him if he manages to find a way to return his serves. Even if the Slovenian player manages to break once, he’ll be able to put a lot of pressure on the Italian.
Fans have really high expectations from the match. Will Bedene be able to take revenge of his last defeat at Wimbledon 2021?
Final Prediction: Matteo Berrettini to win in four sets
