Berrettini Defeats Alejandro Davidovich Fokina

It wasn’t easy, but Berrettini was the one who finally ended Davidovich Fokina’s impressive play at the US Open. The Italian won 3-6, 7-6(2), 6-3, 4-6, 6-2, in an almost four hour match.

Berrettini came out to a rather slow start, that had him having to play catch up quickly, to extend his record to 16-4 in New York.

After missing both the French Open and Wimbledon this year, the 26-year old is back in the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam. With the win, he reaches the quarterfinals for his fifth consecutive Grand Slam appearance.

Ruud is One Step Closer to No. 1

It almost didn’t happen there for a second, but fifth seed defeated lucky loser Corentin Moutet 6-1, 6-2, 7(7)-6(5), 6-2 to earn a spot in the US Open quarterfinals for the first time in his career.

Ruud was in control of this match until he wasn’t. The Norwegian was cruising nicely, until he seemingly lost control of his forehand, it was not working for him. At that time Moutet was able to take advantage and win that third set. But the 23-year old was able to compose himself and win the fourth and final set quite easily.

If Ruud beats Berrettini here, he’ll rise to World No.2 in the rankings, and continues to possibility that he could go No. 1 by the end of the tournament.

Sixth Times the Charm

Berrettini and Ruud know each other fairly well. This will be the sixth time, and the second time this year that two will go toe-to-toe. Four of their meetings were played on an outdoor clay court, and despite Ruud holding the 3-2 head-to-head edge, it’s Berrettini that has one the only match they’ve played on a hard court, at the 2020 US Open.

Berrettini vs Ruud Pick

Berrettini is hand’s down the better player on hard court, we know this. Ruud’s specialty is clay. But the Norwegian has made up noticeable ground in his hard court play, especially here at the US Open. The 23-year old is also playing some of the best tennis of his career, hence why he’s continuously climbing up the rankings.

The two have similar styles of play, but Berrettini is definitely the stronger player. The Italian’s serve is unmatched, and he follows it up with a very strong forehand. But Ruud has the stronger backhand, and is able to bring in more versatility into his game, which can cause his opponents to be on the heels.

So where’s the best bet? Let’s go beyond who will win, and focus on how much tennis needs to be played before we have a winner.

Best Bet: Five sets (+260)
