Andy Murray showcased his vintage gameplay in his last match. The 34-year-old won 43% of his return points and was never under pressure throughout the game. However, he will face a tough challenge from the Italian tennis star Matteo Berrettini in the second round.
Berretini has been in decent form this season. He was able to reach the quarter-final of the French Open 2021 without much hassle. However, his dream run was halted by the French Open champion Novak Djokovic in a hard-fought encounter.
Berretini also dominated fellow countryman Stefano Travaglia in his opening-round match. Especially his serves proved way too difficult to handle for Travaglia. Berretini won 81% of his first-serve points and ended up winning the game in straight sets by 7-6, 7-6. He would look to replicate his performance in the next encounter as well.

Despite the fact that Murray has been out of action for a long time, it would be fair to say that odds are slightly in his favor. The Brit dominated the proceedings in the previous game and he is moving around the court with great agility. However, the top-seeded Berretini will not go down without a fight.
