TennisSection previews the 2021 Wimbledon Championships as Matteo Berrettini (7) meets Guido Pella in the Round of 128 on Wednesday, June 30th 2021.
Will Guido Pella pull an incredible run as he did in 2019 here at Wimbledon by causing some big upsets? Will Matteo Berrettini build on the strong performances he put on in grass this season as he won the Queen’s Open? Both players can make this match very interesting if they are both at their best, but only one will make their way to the Round of 64 of the 2021 Wimbledon Championships. Who will it be?
Guido Pella has had a rough start to the grass court season, losing all 3 of his Singles matches. Guido Pella, when at his best, is hard to beat and can compete with some of the biggest names in the game. However, we have not seen this level of play in a long time. Guido Pella is going to have to raise his level drastically now as he has been handed a tough side of the draw at the 2021 Wimbledon Championships, as he meets the very in form Italian, Matteo Berrettini right from the get go.
Matteo Berrettini had a very strong start to his 2021 grass court season, winning his biggest title at the Queen’s Open. With his performances in that tournament, Matteo put himself in a strong position to be a dark horse here at Wimbledon and perhaps make his way very far instead of other big names like Zverev. Matteo Berrettini is a very tough player with a big serve and forehand. His only weaknesses are his second serve and his backhand. However, if he is able to master the backhand slice, on grass, he will find a lot of success. Can he show us some of this against Guido Pella?
Matteo Berrettini and Guido Pella have never met before, with this being their first encounter. If this was 2019, I would have expected a tighter match, but Matteo and Guido have been on opposite ends of the spectrum this year. Guido has gone 3-11 in his matches this year, whilst Matteo has gone 26-6. Matteo’s power, speed of shot, and ability to dictate points will allow him to get on top of this match right from the start and get an easy win under his belt to make his way to the Round of 64 of the 2021 Wimbledon Championships.
