    (ANSA) – ROME, JANUARY 25 – Matteo Berrettini continues to write pages in the history of blue tennis. The Roman, after becoming the first Italian tennis player to hit the quarter-finals in all four Grand Slams, has reached the semifinal at the Australian Open, so far the only one in history.

    After a five-set battle against Gael Monfils, Matteo Berrettini in three days challenges the legend Rafa Nadal, the only one of the Big Three who tries to block the way to the New Generation of world tennis. It will be an uphill race for the number 7 in the world: Sisal experts see Manacor’s left-handed favorite at 1.50, to hit the sixth final in Melbourne, while Berrettini’s success is played at 2.60.

    The match on January 28th will be only the second challenge between the two: it so happens that even in 2019, in the semifinal at the US Open where Nadal won 3-0, the Roman tennis player had beaten in the quarterfinals, after another battle in 5 sets, Monfils.

    Another marathon is shaping up as the hypothesis that they both win at least one set is offered at low odds, at 1.44. Thus an exact result of 3-2 in favor of Berrettini is given at 7.75 while the same score but in favor of the Spaniard is played at 6.25. The Italian, who does not want to stop dreaming, is chasing a double goal against Nadal: reaching the first career final at the Australian Open and overcoming Nadal himself, currently at number 5 in the world rankings but just a few points behind Berrettini. in the ATP ranking.
