Wimbledon: Matteo Berrettini laughs, Jannik Sinner takes chances.
Matteo Berrettini may only cross paths with Djokovic in the final
Positive Wimbledon scoreboard draw for Matteo Berrettini, who, according to bookmakers, is the second favorite to win the final London tournament after his successes in Stuttgart and at Queen’s. The Roman tennis player will begin his Slam adventure against 26-year-old Chilean Cristian Garin, who is certainly not at ease on this surface.
Until the quarters, the most hostile opponent for Berrettini is Diego Schwartzman: in case of finishing in the top 8, a challenge with Stefanos Tsitsipas, number 4 in the seeding, could loom instead, while in the semifinals a clash with Rafa Nadal is likely. A rematch with Novak Djokovic could take place only in the final.
On the other hand, Jannik Sinner, who also highlighted his difficulties on grass in Eastbourne, is not laughing. The South Tyrolean tennis player risks big right away in the first round against the highly experienced Wawrinka. Fabio Fognini grappling with Dutchman Tallon Griekspoor, Lorenzo Sonego with U.S. Denis Kudla, Lorenzo Musetti with U.S. Taylor Fritz.
