Berrettini vs Pouille / ATP Rome – The last Masters that is played on clay courts will be played in Rome next week where R. Nadal is the title defender. The Spaniard defeated German A. Zverev in last year’s final by 2-1 in sets. The first analysis from the tournament will cover match between domestic player M. Berrettini and French L. Pouille.
Berrettini vs Pouille begins 12.05.2019 at 13:45 CET
Berrettini is one of younger Italian players who started to draw attention on himself last season. The Italian continued to play well in this season too and right now he occupies the 31st place in the ATP list, which is at the same time the best rating in his career. Berrettini won two ATP titles so far, out of which he won one in Budapest this season, where he defeated after three sets F. Krajinovic in the final.
The Italian played well at recently finished tournament in Munich where he reached the final but lost to Ch. Garrin. As we can see Berrettini’s good results are closely related to clay courts, meaning that great expectations of domestic audience are largely justified. His win/loss ratio that stood before the tournament in Rome at 15-10 also speaks in his favour.
Pouille struggles this season to regain form that he had in two previous seasons. We remind you that the French occupied the 10th place in the ATP list one year ago but he arrived to Rome being World’s no. 28. Fact that Pouille won just five matches and lost seven so far this season only speaks in favour of our conclusion that he is not in good shape.
Pouille won five ATP titles in seven-year long professional career, out of which he won the last one in Montpellier last season when he defeated R. Gasquet in the final. The best and at the same time the only noteworthy results Pouille made at the Australian Open where he reached the semi-finals when was expectedly stopped by N. Djokovic.
Berrettini vs Pouille PICK
The two players haven’t met before at ATP tournament. All what we have said before clearly tells us that young Berrettini is in better shape than his opponent, which is why we expect to win in front of his fans.
Pick: Berrettini wins
