Alexander Zverev vs Matteo Berrettini: Preview
Alexander Zverev enters the tournament as the new World No. 3 after his semi-final run at the 2021 Paris Masters and a title in Vienna before that. Zverev has 5 titles to his name this season from the 5 finals he has played and has been one of the most consistent players across surfaces. Zverev won the 2018 ATP Finals and now is now on the hunt for his 2nd Year-End Championship title. Zverev was eliminated in the Round-Robin stage in 2020.
Matteo Berrettini will make his 2nd appearance at the Year-End Championships after having made his debut in 2019 when he was eliminated in the Round-Robin stage. The Italian on the back of two titles this season from 4 finals including a maiden Grand Slam final, finishing as the runner-up at Wimbledon 2021, is one of the most exciting players this week in Turin.

Zverev will come into the tie with a career indoor hardcourt record of 75-39 and is 9-2 on the surface this season while having a season record of 55-14 across all surfaces. Berrettini will take the court with a career indoor hardcourt record of 24-24 and is 3-1 on the surface this season and has a 41-11 record for the season across all surfaces.
Looking at these numbers and their recent form in the past few weeks, Zverev seems the favourite for the tie given his superior form with Berretini having struggled a bit lately.
