Zverev vs Berrettini (By: Iniestaone)
Second round match from ATP Rome between Zverev (#5) and Berrettini (#33)
As Zverev's awful form continues to plague him, I will be backing Berrettini to defeat him tomorrow in the second round in Rome.
Zverev was 20/3 on clay last season, this season he is 5/5 and we're only on May 13th. There have been instances of good clay court performances here and there but unless you count Auger Aliassime as a top tier player, then he hasn't defeated a top tier player so far this season on clay. I can't put my tongue on what exactly is wrong with him but so many things look mistimed, the groundstrokes and especially the slides when he's coming in on the court, its not the same Zverev we saw last year.
Berrettini on the other hand is having the season of his life and he has now entered Rome as a big fan favorite after winning Budapest and reaching the finals in Munich. But its only that he won the tournaments, its that he plays really well. He has a big serve to go with his baseline consistency and in the first round he took out Pouille 6-2 6-4 going through it unbroken and only giving Pouille one breakpoint. The massive crowd support is helping him a lot here as well.
I think the odds should be a lot more even than this, Berrettini should perhaps be an underdog at around 2.15
