Berrettini in Nadal’s half of the table

By with AFP

Italy’s Matteo Berrettini, a finalist at Wimbledon last year and a winner at Stuttgart and Queen’s this month, will be half of Rafael Nadal’s table for the London Grand Slam leg after Friday’s draw

In the first round and for his first Wimbledon since 2019, Nadal will oppose the Argentinian Francisco Cerundolo, in a tournament which has not smiled on him since 2010. He could also have to get rid of Félix Auger-Aliassime who had delivered to him a dantesque fight in five sets at Roland-Garros, in the round of 16. Ranked seeded No. 8, Berrettini, current No. 11 in the world, will start his tournament against the Chilean Cristian Garin and would theoretically find on his way Stefanos Tsitsipas, No. 6 at the ATP, in the quarter.

The seeded n ° 1, Novak Djokovic, defending champion, will have a priori a fairly simple first round against the South Korean Kwon Soon-woo (75th), with an appointment scheduled against the Spanish nugget Carlos Alcaraz in quarter of final.

On the side of the local idols, Andy Murray, injured since his lost final in Stuttgart, will face him against the Australian James Duckworth in the first tour. He may then have to face the powerful server John Isner in the second round.
