Then there was two at SW19. What a story this is for Matteo Berrettini, the big hitting Italian conquered Queens and has carried that grass court form into Wimbledon. Over the past two weeks Berrettini shown his class powering through to a first Grand Slam final of his career, seeing off the Hubert Hurkacz in four sets in the semi-final on Friday.
Sunday 14:00 – Matteo Berrettini v Novak Djokovic
Berrettini’s opponent is all too familiar with Wimbledon finals though. Novak Djokovic will look to make this his sixth victory at Wimbledon and is heavy odds on favourite to do just that. The Serb has been ultra impressive en-route to the final, as he hunts a record equaling 20th Grand Slam title. He has only dropped one set all tournament and that was in Round 1 against the young, up-and-coming Brit Jack Draper.
The remarkable thing is that Djokovic has barely looked out of second gear throughout the competition and could bring his top game to the final, something Berrettini will pray won’t be the case. The early exchanges will likely be focused on getting games on the board and holding serve. This may drag the first set towards a tie-break, as Berrettini big, booming serve has may help him get a foothold in the match. For that reason, our first fancy is Set 1 Total Games Over 12.5.
The sheer physical strength and power of Berrettini, alone with his obvious ability makes the Over 36.5 Total Match Games a strong fancy. Both players have only played two tie breaks at Wimbledon throughout the tournament so far, but we fancy there will be at least one in this final. Djokovic has a unique knack to serve himself out of any possible trouble and Berrettini has landed 101 aces at this year’s tournament.
We do believe Djokovic will have too much for Berrettini, but as mentioned above the big hitting Italian may well be able to use his new found confidence on the grass to take a set or two. But, ultimately the five-time champion should add to his trophy haul, which will then not only put him on the cusp of having the most major titles of any player in history but also being the first man to win a calendar Grand Slam since Rod Laver in 1969.
