(ANSA) – ROME, JUN 24 – Matteo Berrettini’s return to the circuit after the injury and the operation was a great champion: two tournaments won one week apart, the ATP 250 in Stuttgart and the Atp 500 of the Queen’s, launch the run-up of the Roman at Wimbledon, appointment at the start on Monday and a dream broken a year ago in the final against Novak Djokovic.
Matteo is energized and the Snai blackboard places the 26-year-old Italian in second place among the favorites for the victory of the third Slam of the season. The first triumph of an Italian at the Championships is worth 6.50: ahead, only the world number one, at 1.85.
After the victory at Roland Garros, Rafa Nadal is also back on the track, on the lowest step of the podium at 8.00 and preceding another Spaniard, the very young Carlos Alcaraz, placed at 10.
The fifth favorite, the Polish Hurkacz, is played at 15, as well as the “Other” option which includes the possible surprises in a tournament that among the big players will be orphaned by the Russians Medvedev and Rublev and by the injured German Zverev. The other hope of Italian tennis, Jannik Sinner, is more delayed, but does not seem to have a particular feeling with grass: the South Tyrolean champion is at 100.
If the men’s tournament seems open to other solutions than the victory of the ‘usual’ Djokovic, the odds for the women’s draw have only one queen, undisputed: the Polish Iga Swiatek, who stopped in the round of 16 at Wimbledon last year . Swiatek’s share (2.75) is higher than Djokovic’s, but behind to find another name you need to get to 10 of Coco Gauff (finalist at Roland Garros) and 12 of Ons Jabeur, Simona Halep and of “Other” option.
On the other hand, those hoping for a romantic epilogue at the All England Club can bet on the quota (15) for the return to success of Serena Williams, who at almost 41 has no intention of giving up. (HANDLE).
