With wins in 22 of his last 26 matches, it’s fair to say Berrettini is probably the hottest and most underrated player remaining in the men’s field. Berrettini hopes to make a grand slam fourth round appearance for the first time in his career. Berrettini has won 10 of his last 11 matches on grass court.

Schwartzman won the only meeting, which was this year in Rome, a match decided in straight sets. The match needed 19 games to be completed.
Schwartzman is capable of winning this match and did win the only previous meeting less than two months ago. Schwartzman plays his best on these slower courts where he can set up shots and control the pace. The problem is Berrettini doesn’t lose these days and has been a serving machine through his fist two matches. I’m just not trying to step in front of the Italian and it’s really that simple.
