The last match of the ATP 250 tournament in Stuttgart, Germany. We have an Italian Matteo Berrettini facing off against Canadian Felix Auger-Alissime battling it out in the final match in Stuttgart. To have more insights on this ATP Matteo Berrettini vs Felix Auger-Aliassime match please check out the preview below.
Young Italian is having a great season so far. He has won 27 out of 39 matches played overall including 4 in a row on grass. He hasn’t even lost a single set at this tournament while defeating Kyrgios, Khachanov, Kudla, and Struff in straight sets. This is only his second season playing on the grass where he hasn’t played until 2018. Matteo didn’t have an impressive record on this ground last year. He won 4 out of 8 matches and he’s almost surpassed his previous season record today by winning the 4th match in 5 days on grass. Tomorrow will be a little tougher for him knowing that Felix had a day off today. While Berrettini had to play against Struff. Even though the match didn’t take long some fatigue should still be felt.
The youngest of this tournament reached the final after today’s opponent Milos Raonic decided not to play due to injury. Felix got a little bit lucky someone may say. However, there is a good chance he would’ve been in this spot anyway given how well he’s been performing so far this season. While struggling in first 2 rounds against Popyrin and Tsonga only coming out on top in the 3rd set in both matches he’s beaten Fucsovics in straight sets in the quarter-final. He showed some growth on his grass game. It’s hard to believe that this tournament is only the first one on grass for him as he has already in the final and playing like a solid veteran. There are high expectations for this kid and winning the first title on grass would definitely pass a lot of them for a while.
