- On the test: Roger Federer sweeps Matteo Berrettini (ATP 20) 6: 1, 6: 2, 6: 2 from the middle of the field.
- 73-minute Tagwerk: The favorite is on his way to his 17th Wimbledon quarter-final at the 21st part-time job.
- Next opponent: Wednesday, we wait before the possible summit meeting of the semifinals with the Japanese Kei Nishikori, Rafael Nadal.
Matteo Berrettini certainly had arguments to make Roger Federer an uncomfortable opponent in the round of 32 at Wimbledon. Roman, 23, did not compete until his 14th Grand Slam appearance, but the winner of the Stuttgart race recorded an impressive record this season on 11: 1 wins before making his first comparison with the "Maestro".
I'm in a good groove!
But the arguments were swept away in no time. Because the pitiful Italians could never recover its effective capacity. He seemed overworked and visibly nervous. After a record 17 minutes, 2 pauses and only 2 points in the service Roger Federer was the starting game.
No more than a workout partner
In the same style, it continued with one-way tennis. Berrettini was also to take the service twice each of the following rounds – still at an early stage. He had thrown in the preparations for the match and this document for his strength of form in the balance: he had to leave the service during his triumph in Stuttgart three weeks ago, throughout the tournament.
"I could read his service very well," the bidder commented laconically. He then added, "I am in a good way!" On the other side of the net, the 1.96 meter man himself had a chance to clear himself. When the train had long gone for him, Berrettini forgave him miserably. Therefore, the end of the game after 73 minutes for him was equivalent to a release.
The Wimbledon champion 8 times, despite a one-way duel, had ample opportunity to demonstrate his own class. He gave only 40 points (even 78 points) and left after a rather quiet entry into Church Road a strong and strongly bearish impression. The award: Federer celebrated his 185th field victory and is lucky to win the 100th anniversary of the All England Club in the next game.
Kei Nishikori (Jap), 37, will be looking for another legendary brand. The world number 7 conceded against Mikhail Kukushkin (Kas / ATP 58) the loss of the first set of the tournament. The face to face is 7: 3 for Switzerland. Although Nishikori won the last game in 2018 in the ATP final, but lost in the only 2014 duel ever played in the grass in Halle's semifinal (3: 6, 6: 7).
