A week from Wimbledon, Matteo Berrettini is proposed as the best alternative to Novak Djokovic on grass-courts. The Italian number one collects his twenty-sixth success of the season, but above all a historic title in the ATP Queen’s tournament, which came in 2021 at the 118th edition.
For example, Boris Becker had won his debut at Queen’s in 1985. Berrettini, ever closer to box number eight in the ranking, after a practically perfect week does not change the project against Cameron Norrie.
He beat him with an excellent 6-4 6-7 (5) 6-3 at the threshold of two and ten hours of play. After Omar Camporese in Rotterdam in 1991 and Fabio Fognini in Hamburg in 2013, an Italian tennis player returns to win an ATP 500 tournament. For Berrettini it is the second title of the season, the second on grass-courts and the fifth in his career.
