Tennis Prediction of the Day Dominic Thiem vs Matteo Berrettini
The form and morale of the two players are at diametrically opposite levels, Thiem being confident after the victories against Djokovic and Federer, while Berrettini is already eliminated from the competition, with no winning set. I expect Dominic Thiem to be equally dominant in this last match, and will win without too much trouble this confrontation, considering the rather ominous form of the Italian.
Bet Tips: D. Thiem 2-0
In all 3 previous direct matches, Matteo has managed to win at least one set in front of Dominic. Thursday’s game will take place under special conditions, with the Austrian already qualified and probably not 100% mentally involved. The preservation instinct could also intervene, given that Thiem will play Saturday’s first career semi-final in the Champions Tournament.
