Berrettini should be a model. He’s so pretty.


His brother is photogenic as well.

Yes he brother is hot. Too bad Matteo is a bad sport. He didn't even acknowledge Herbie when he left the court.

 

I don't know what happened in the fourth set where he kept giving Herbie the evil eye.

Yeah, that was weird. Like Hubi didn’t sufficiently apologize for the netcord winner or something? Matteo’s odd attitude seemed to happen around that point…

It really did. Incredibly childish of Berrettini if that was the reason. Especially since he himself offered no apology at all when he had a netcord winner later.

Matteo is the player that has benefited the most from the 2 year ranking freeze. He should've dropped last year to around 80 in the world. He had zero results.

 

And just noticed.. How did Tsisitpas gain 170 points when he lost first round?

Like that moron Fognini.  He is so damn pretty but a a really nasty person.  

Speaking of Fognini…

Roger Federer would like a word, but certainly Matteo would have been a lot lower in the rankings.

Absolutely!  But look at what he's done with it?  A Slam final.

Totally. One might wonder who he might have faced at Wimbledon if his ranking had been much lower. (Given how much higher-ranked players like Tsitsipas crapped out, not sure it would have made much difference.)

This SF doesn't seem worth my time, tbh. I tried.

Why is Novak playing like crap?  I'm tired of seeing him play these kind of matches. The sad part is shapo is playing his cat and mouse game.

He’s played badly all tournament, but I chalk it up to a (mostly mental?) letdown after winning RG and having to come back so soon to play Wimbledon. He’s not young anymore. It’s crazy he only dropped that first set in R1 against Draper. But Shapovalov isn’t taking advantage, and I’m not totally sure Berrettini will either.

I can't remember the last time I didn't care about either final.  While I would love for Pliskobot to lose, it's still a meh.  

Novak vs Berrettini is not must see to me.
