Jannik Sinner v Matteo Berrettini: Prediction, Tips and Odds

It really has been a remarkable season for Jannik Sinner, who will be looking to reach his first ever Wimbledon men's singles final this summer, and standing in his way in round two is fellow Italian Matteo Berrettini.

Sinner has been the standout player on the ATP tour, securing top spot in the world rankings ahead of the season's third Grand Slam, and he will take some stopping.

Berrettini is not the force he once was but he reached the final at Wimbledon in 2021 and could be a fierce opponent.

Jannik Sinner to win 3-1 - 9/4

For many punters, Sinner is the man to beat at Wimbledon this year and it is easy to see why.

The Italian ace heads into Wimbledon having won 38 of his 41 matches on the ATP tour this year, hoovering up four titles in the process.

The latest of those triumphs came at the Halle Open in late June and that represented Sinner's first tour-level title on grass.

He beat fifth seed Hubert Hurkacz 7-6 7-6 in the final and is looking to reach the final of Wimbledon for the first time in his career, having carved out a run to the semi-finals in 2023.

There is every chance he can do so but in his way in the second round is compatriot Berrettini, who made the final at the All England Club three years ago.

This will not be a straightforward match for Sinner but neither was his opener against Yannick Hanfmann.

Sinner won that match 6-3 6-4 3-6 6-3 in the end, firing down 16 aces and 47 winners against his German counterpart.

He dropped a set in the match but he did not seem fazed about doing so and he kept his composure to see out the contest.

And while Sinner can be destructive when at his peak, he could well drop a set against Berrettini when recharging, so a bet on the world number one to win this match in four sets could be the way to go.

Jannik Sinner -4.5 games on handicap - 4/6

Although Sinner could drop a set against Berrettini, he nonetheless looks worth a bet at -4.5 games on the handicap.

He lost the third set against Hanfmann last time out but nonetheless won the overall game count 21-16 and he could prevail by a similar margin in this one.

Sinner can be ruthless when he gets going and he should draw confidence from his only previous meeting with Berrettini.

The pair locked horns in an ATP Masters 1000 event in Toronto last year with Sinner coming out on top 6-4 6-3, so even in a best-of-three-sets contest, he still would have covered the -4.5 games on the handicap.

Sinner barely broke a sweat en route to the last four of Wimbledon last year, losing just two sets across matches with Juan Manuel Cerundolo, Diego Schwartzmann, Quentin Halys, Daniel Galan and Roman Safiullin.

He was eventually ousted by Wimbledon powerhouse Djokovic but Sinner looked more than comfortable on the grass courts at the All England Club and those reluctant to take a stab at the set betting market may prefer to back him on the games handicap.
