After Fabio Fognini, Federico Delbonis and Christian Garin, Italian Matteo Berrettini, already sure of the ninth position in the ranking - also beats Casper Ruud to reach the 2021 Mutua Madrid Open final. Thanks to an impeccable performance with the available serve, Matteo won 6-4 6-4 on the threshold of two hours of play and reaches Alexander Zverev, Dominic Thiem's executioner.
The Austrian is not enough for this Alexander Zverev. This, simplistically, is the reason for the 6-4 6-3 which matures at the threshold of ninety minutes of play. The 2018 champion manages the matter perfectly thanks to 79% of the points with the first ball and above all he smears three breaks in a surgical way.
One in the inaugural stage, two in the second. Sascha catches the twenty-fourth final in his career, the number eight in the category, but above all consolidates his sixth position in the ranking.
