TennisSection previews the 2021 Vienna Open as Matteo Berrettini takes on Carlos Alcaraz in the Quarter-Finals on Friday, October 29th, 2021.
Will Carlos Alcaraz get another big win under his belt as he aims to get into the Semi-Finals of what he hopes to be his first ATP 500 title of his career? Will Matteo Berrettini continue to show some solid tennis in these conditions as he aims to get his best form before the Paris Masters and ATP Finals? Both players have huge forehands, but who’s forehand is going to get them into the Semi-Finals of the 2021 Vienna Open?
Carlos Alcaraz put on an amazing performance in the Round of 16 against Andy Murray, who has been unbreaten in his career here in Vienna up until that match. Carlos won in straight sets 6-3/6-4, which seems to be an easy scoreline, but the match was definitely not easy. Murray was showing great resilience at the start of the second set and it looked as if he could potentially take it to a third set. However, Alcaraz pulled off some amazing shots to break back and get the win over in 2 sets. The Spaniard’s forehand is huge, and he will definitely come out here looking to show us this again as he aims to beat a top 10 player in Matteo Berrettini here at the 2021 Vienna Open.
Matteo Berrettini had to fight back from a set down against the in form Georgian, Nikoloz Basilashvili, beating him in 3 sets 6-7/6-2/6-3. The match was very tight early on, and once Matteo realised that playing long rallies would not get him too far, he drastically increased the power and risk on his serve to get some free points. Berrettini will be very happy that he was able to come through that match, but he will now know that he has an even tougher challenge ahead as he meets the in form and determined Carlos Alcaraz here at the 2021 Vienna Open.
Matteo Berrettini and Carlos Alcaraz have never met before, with this being their first meeting on the ATP Tour. Although Matteo is the higher ranked player, we cannot take Carlos too lightly in this match. With his amazing speed around the court, and his powerful forehand, he can keep the Italian on his toes. However, I think that the experience of the Italian will allow him also find some advantages. This match could go either way in my opinion, but I believe that it is not going to be a quick match, and both players are more than capable of winning a set each here as they fight for a spot in the Semi-Finals of the 2021 Vienna Open.
