Matteo Berrettini Vs Andy Murray Prediction, Head-To-Head, Preview And Live Stream- Australian Open 2024

Wimbledon runner-up in 2021 At the 2024 Australian Open, Matteo Berrettini will face three-time Grand Slam victor Andy Murray in a highly anticipated first-round matchup.

The 26-year-old won two wins on grasscourt in 2022 but fell outside the Top-10 and is now ranked No. 14 in the world. He began the 2024 season by winning three games in the United Cup, including two victories over players ranked in the top 10 (Hubert Hurkacz and Casper Ruud). His winning streak, however, was short-lived as he lost to Taylor Fritz and Stefanos Tsitsipas, respectively, in the United Cup semifinals and championship match.

At the Adelaide International 1, Andy Murray had no victories but did lose in straight sets to eventual runner-up Sebastian Korda. The former World No. 1 has acquired some momentum recently, though, after spending a few years outside the Top-100. His finest performance in 2022 was reaching the Stuttgart Open final, when he lost the championship to his current rival Berrettini.

Berrettini vs Murray Prediction

The former World No. 6 will want to rack up early points and overtake Murray with his powerful serve and forehand. The 35-year-old, on the other hand, will attempt to take advantage of the Italian’s weaker backhand and will aim to produce reliable returns and prolong rallies to wear out his opponent. However, Berrettini is anticipated to put all on the line in 2024 and is most likely to advance to the following round at the 2024 Australian Open despite the challenge of defending points gained during last year’s semifinal.
