You should look why waits Novak after Ber... Don't be so hatred man... Novak has worst possible draw he could get...
Don’t be so hatred...yeah I’m good man. In 2019 had Zedrot not lost to Shortsman RAFA would have played the exact same last 3 players as Joker most likely will. Just switch Zedrot and Berry in the QF-SF matches and it’s a mirror image.

Djokovic triumphs. What’s amazing is that Berrettini hit some first serve bombs that Djokovic returned so deep and with precision placement. It’s just astounding how he does that over and over grinding his opponent down. Roddick wasn’t kidding when he said Djokovic takes your soul.

A pleasure to witness a master at work!

If Berrettini wins a major in the future with that backhand, I'm fracking going to stop watching tennis
I see him as a different flavor Tsonga. Weak backhand that can be surprisingly adequate when he’s on and poor movement too but a serve/forehand combo that can fill up a hot shot reel.

Well, actually Zverev has a very good BH and a monstrous serve.
I think that he will beat Djokovic that keeps losing sets in every match.

If Berrettini doesn’t fix his backhand then I just don’t see him winning any major titles. Maybe he snags a 1000 if he redlines but it’s just such a glaring weakness.

Tsonga's backhand was significantly better than Berrettini's and so was his movement.....Berrettini hits some big forehands but what's the point if the forehand and serve breakdown when you need it the most under pressure

Berrettini at the peak age of 25 has lost 3 consecutive slam matches to a player 9 years his senior...with none of the matches going to 5 sets. He should fire his entire coaching team effective immediately.
He had to know if he got broken early in the 2nd, he’d be in big trouble. And yet he did absolutely nothing to try to change that.

I don’t know who the real Tsonga was. He could go from a brilliant volleyer who could rally with top players one week to a player who couldn’t put two backhands in the court and was allergic to the forecourt the next
