Withdrawing from Wimbledon due to Covid19, Berrettini chose to compete in a clay court tournament in Gstaad, where he advanced to the final. But after that, consecutive loses in the first round of the two Masters competitions in Montreal and Cincinnati would not have surprised him. After recovering to go to the US Open quarterfinals by defeating Andy Murray and Alejandro Davidovich Fokina, Berrettini went on to win three Davis Cup matches over the previous weekend.
The season had started off quite well for Auger-Aliassime as he advanced to the Australian Open quarterfinals, won the title in Rotterdam, and then qualified for the Marseille title match. Since then, though, the Canadian has somewhat lost his stride and has only once—at the French Open—won three straight matches at the top level in the 17 events in which he has competed. More recently, after great beginnings at Montreal and Cincinnati, he lost in the third match he played. However, wins over players like Jannik Sinner and Cameron Norrie in both competitions would lift his spirits.
