Matteo Berrettini vs Cameron Norrie: Preview
Matteo Berrettini has been in tremendous form lately. The 2019 Stuttgart Open champion has gone past all his opponents in this year’s Cinch Championship without dropping a single set. He defeated Australian tennis star Alex de Minaur in the semi-final clash without much difficulty.
Berrettini looked dominant right from the first game and won the semi-final in straights sets by 6-4, 6-4. The match was done and dusted in just an hour and 23 minutes. Number 1 seeded Berrettini was stretched a little bit in the first round clash and the quarter-finals.
Stefano Travaglia posed a tough challenge in front of him in the opening round. However, Matteo still ended up winning in straight sets by 7-6, 7-6. In the quarter-finals, Dan Evans took the first set into the tie-breaker, however, Matteo continued to attack and won the game comprehensively.
Berrettini is just one step away from scripting history. He will face a tough challenge from Cameron Norrie who has been dominant in the tournament as well. He thrashed second-seeded Denis Shapovalov in the semi-finals to confirm his place in the finals.

Matteo Berrettini vs Cameron Norrie: Prediction
Matteo Berrettini has been fantastic in the tournament, but at the same time, Cameron Norrie has improved his game to a great extent as well. Norrie was taken to the third-set in his first-round clash by Albert Ramos Viñolas. Post that, Noorie hasn’t dropped a single set in the Queen’s.
Moreover, the way he defeated second-seeded Denis Shapovalov in straight sets in his last encounter shows that he is capable of thrashing even the best in the business. The odds are in favor of Berrettini, however, Norrie is expected to pose a tough challenge ahead of the Italian.
Prediction: Matteo Berrettini to win in three sets.
