The prediction for the match between Matteo Berrettini and Fabio Fognini. The most interesting Italian derby will take place in the second round of the competition in Madrid, and there is no doubt that the tennis players will delight us with a great game.
A detailed analysis of the match is waiting for you below.
Once the athletes represented crossed paths, their meeting took place at the Masters in Rome in 2017. Fognini then beat Berrettini fairly easily in two games. However, due to the fact that since then Matteo has made tremendous progress in the game plan, the favorite of the current match is him.
Berrettini recently became the champion of the tournament in Belgrade, and this success undoubtedly motivated him to new achievements. I am glad that Matteo managed to recover so quickly from the injury he received in February, but it is worth saying that he still has a lot to grow. Last season was not the best for the Italian, while now he clearly intends to properly rehabilitate himself for all the failures.
Fognini, unlike his current opponent, managed to play one match on the local courts, in which he defeated the little-known Spanish athlete Carlos Taberner. It is clear that Fabio is now in mediocre conditions, so he will definitely not be able to stay in the Spanish capital for a long time.
