Second round action at Wimbledon continues on Friday, as a delayed tie between Alex de Minaur and Matteo Berrettini takes place. It promises to be a fascinating battle between two impressive players on the grass surface, with both holding a good chance of going far in the competition this year.

Before Betting On Matteo Berrettini vs Alex de Minaur

Matteo Berrettini is a player that always impresses at Wimbledon, and he holds a brilliant record on the grass surface. The former winner of the Queen’s Club Championships was made to wait an extended time to book his spot in the second round, with his match against Lorenzo Sonego getting underway on Tuesday morning. However, rain delays meant that both players were forced to remain patient, with the result eventually being settled on Thursday evening.

It was Berrettini that was able to deal with the delay better, as he caused a slight shock by eliminating his close friend in four sets. The Italian dropped the opening set against his compatriot, but he would win the remaining three sets to cruise through. However, it will be interesting to see how he deals with the quick turnaround.

Alex de Minaur has had an extended period of time to prepare for this showdown, as he booked his spot in the second round on Wednesday. The Australian player reached the fourth round at the Grand Slam last year, and has an impressive record at the Slam on the grass over recent seasons.

He made no mistake in booking his place in the next round of the competition earlier this week, as he managed to overcome a tricky test against Kimmer Coppejans. The Australian wrapped up the victory after four sets, scoring 14 aces and making just three double faults. He also scored 75% of the points on the first serve, and 72% on the second serve.
