World No. 1 Novak Djokovic will take on Matteo Berrettini in the French Open Men’s singles quarter-finals this year.
Let’s talk about last matches of both quarter-finalists. For Novak Djokovic, the Serb tennis veteran was stunned by Lorenzo Musetti, 19, on Monday.
Right when the match began, he was put under pressure but the Italian teenager who had the World . 1 trialing by two sets. Djokovic turned the game in its favour dramatically after being two sets down.
The 34-year-old, who lost the opening two sets on tiebreaks, went on to exhaust his teen counterpart. But Djokovic will find it difficult to break his next opponent – Matteo Berrettini.
Italy’s Berrettini, 25, has done well this season. From winning a clay title at clay at the first Serbia Open show to silently making it to the Masters final, he has shown class all around.
He was rather lucky in the Roland Garros tournament where he avoided locking horns against one of the Big 3 stars – Roger Federer.
The Swiss tennis legend was scheduled to take Berrettini to court in the last 16, but he announced his withdrawal due to knee issues.
Federer had remarked: “After discussions with my team, I’ve decided I will need to pull out of the French Open today. After two knee surgeries and over a year of rehabilitation it’s important that I listen to my body and make sure I don’t push myself too quickly on my road to recovery. I am thrilled to have gotten three matches under my belt. There is no greater feeling than being back.”
The Swiss legend looked lethargic after playing beating Dominik Koepfer in the French Open game that lasted three hours and 35 minutes. Federer got the victory 7-6 6-7 7-6 7-5 close to 1 am local time in Paris.
This meant a walkover for Berrettini.
