Tennis Prediction of the Day Matteo Berrettini vs Dominic Thiem Pont
I bet with average confidence on a first set with overtime between the two top 8 tennis players in the world.
Berrettini won last weekend the UTS tournament organized by Patrick Mouratoglu, on hard in the south of France.
Thiem is the most complete tennis player from a technical-tactical point of view, but the Italian will be difficult to break and it is very possible to go back to work with the service, at least in the first set.
