Matteo Berrettini vs Guido Pella: Preview

 World number nine Matteo Berrettini won his fifth career title by defeating Cam Norrie in the Queen’s Club final 2021. Berrettini’s Queen’s championship triumph was his first at the ATP 500 level and his first on grass, and many are already tipping him for a long run at Wimbledon. Berrettini, 25, previously won the Serbia Open and came runner-up at the Madrid Masters, all on clay. Berrettini’s finest Grand Slam performance to date was a semi-final defeat to Rafael Nadal at the 2019 US Open.

On the other hand, Guido Pella has dropped in the world rankings after reaching the top 20 at the end of 2019. The Argentine has battled with his fitness and form, and it is no wonder that he is now ranked 59th in the world. The 31-year-old lost in the first round at Stuttgart and Halle, and his preparation for Wimbledon did not go as planned. In reality, he has only won three matches on the ATP Tour this year, but he will be hoping to reignite the form he shown here in 2019, when he reached the quarter-finals.

Guido Pella has had a difficult year as his fitness issues persist, and it is worth deferring this match until it is verified. After winning Queen’s, the Italian is in top form and should be aiming for the quarter-finals at the very least this season. We believe Matteo Berrettini will win in three sets.
