England, Wimbledon. 11.07.2021.
In the final of the men's Wimbledon tournament Novak Djokovic, Number 1 in the world will meet the number 9, Matteo Berrettini. The bookmakers consider Novak, who has won Wimbledon five times before, to be the favorite of the game. In addition to the fact that Novak likes grass courts, let's not forget that the Serb has beaten the Italian twice in his career, although the two opponents have not yet played each other on grass.
Novak Djokovic current form
What kind of form do you think the world number one is in when Novak hasn't lost a single set in his last five games? That's right, Djokovic is not at his best, but close to it. In the semifinals of Wimbledon 2021, the Balkan was stronger than the Canadian Denis Shapovalov. You can't say that the match against Denis was an easy one for Novak, but at the same time, the Serb kept it to three hours. In the first set, the rivals played a tie-break, then Novak won twice with a score of 7-5. All in all, Novak served eight times and five double faults in the semifinal match. The ratio of winners/unforced errors is excellent, 33/15, it is obvious that Novak played quite accurately, tried not to take risks, in part, it can be said that he accumulated strength, not fully laid out.
Matteo Berrettini current form
Matteo Berrettini will play in a Grand Slam final for the first time in his career. And do you know what kind of final it will be for Novak Djokovic? That's right, the 30th! It is hard to compare the experience of his opponents, Berrettini seems to be unlikely to win any finals at all. However, I had the same feeling about the semi-final between Shapovalov and Djokovic. After the game, the Serb himself said the Canadian had played better in the first set and was worthy of winning the game. Apparently, it was this notorious experience that let Denis down. In six matches at the tournament Berrettini lost only three sets: Pellier, Auger-Aliassime, and Hurkacz. Although Berrettini played four sets against Hurkacz, the match against the Pole was more short-lived than the second semifinal. Berrettini was amazing against Hubert, serving 22 times on the court with just one double fault. Overall, Matteo's winner/unforced errors ratio was 60/18.
Experts betting tips
The victory of Matteo Berrettini over Novak is unlikely. However, we hope that the Italian can serve again as powerfully as he did in the semifinals against Hurkacz. If Berrettini's serve goes again, but very likely the Italian will win at least one set in the final. We expect hard tennis and at least four games played. Here are the following bets for the men's Wimbledon final: W1 for 1.20, TO (37.5) for 1.944, Novak Djokovic Set Betting 3-0 for 2.10.
