Duel between young players, this will be the first match between them in the circuit.Current world number 79 Mackenzie Mcdonald climbed many positions in the ATP ranking in 2018 and can grow even more in 2019 – especially in the fast court tournaments.To reach the main key of the competition, the American had to play the qualifying phase. He did not take big risks in qualifying. He beat Tim Puetz and Laslo Djere, respectively – went through both without conceding set.The American is agile, likes fast surfaces, shows solidity on both sides and has good angulation capability.

Tennis Prediction of the Day Mackenzie Mcdonald vs Matteo Berrettini

On the other side, Berrettini, current number 52 in the world, made a great season in 2018 and has everything to do another good season this year. However, the Italian did not start 2019 very well. Last week, he lost to Spanish Roberto Bautista-Agut in the first round of the ATP Doha (6-1, 6-4).Berrettini has interesting features to act on fast surfaces. He serves competently, has a great right, is aggressive and is not slow.The Italian has little favoritism, but it is important to emphasize that the American comes with a rhythm of qualifying and is not a bad player on the hard floor. So I expect a balanced game, with a tendency to overtake games. Let’s go with more than 22 games.
