Matteo Berrettini vs Hubert Hurkacz Live Stream & Tips


8th seed Matteo Berrettini of Italy takes on Poland’s Hubert Hurkacz - seeded 14th - on Friday, July 9 for a place in the Wimbledon final. This is Berrettini’s second appearance in the semifinal of a slam, having also made the last 4 at the 2019 US Open, while it’s a first ever slam semifinal for Hurkacz. 

Considering Berrettini had played very little grass court tennis before this year, the way that he has taken to the surface and handled the pressure of being one of the favorites has been remarkable. Three weeks ago, Berrettini made the tennis world sit up and take notice when he powered his way to the grass court title at Queen’s Club. The 6’5” Italian heavyweight with the thunderous serve and sledgehammer forehand simply took that good form into Wimbledon and has continued to improve with every match.

On Wednesday Berrettini overcame his toughest test of the championships when he defeated the massively talented Felix Auger Aliassime of Canada in four sets, 6-3, 5-7, 7-5, 6-3. It was an excellent victory for Berrettini, against an opponent with the size and skillset to match his own. 

Speaking of size, Berrettini’s semifinal opponent Hubert Hurkacz isn’t exactly small. At 6’5”, he is just as tall as Berrettini, although at around 190 lbs, around 20 pounds lighter than the Italian. Being lighter seems to be beneficial to the panther-like Hurkacz, who moves phenomenally well around the court for such a big guy. His opponent on Wednesday - the legendary Roger Federer - certainly had no answer to the Pole’s combination of ferocious serving and tremendous baseline movement and power, with Hurkacz winning 6-3, 7-6, 6-0. 

I’m backing Berrettini to defeat Hurkacz on Friday, winning this match in straight sets and reaching his first slam final.

Head to Head 


This will be the third time overall that Berrettini and Hurkacz have played each other on the ATP tour. They faced each other in the first round of the 2019 ATP Miami Masters 1000 event, with Hurkacz winning 6-4, 6-3. While that match was part of the ATP main draw, the two also met in a qualifier for the Australian Open in 2018, in which Berrettini triumphed 7-6, 6-3.

Matteo Berrettini Form


Berrettini cruised through his first four matches at Wimbledon for the loss of just one set, and was finally given a real test on Wednesday by the 16th seed Felix Auger Aliassime. At 6’4”, the 20-year-old Aliassime is something of a super athlete, and his recent alliance with the great Toni Nadal is starting to show some positive results. However Berrettini has shown incredible mental toughness both at Queens and at Wimbledon, and his focus is unmatched. 

There were times when it seemed that the sheer ability of Auger Aliassime threatened to take control of the match, but Berrettini would hold firm and fire down another ace, or hit another forehand winner to restore order, finally winning 6-3, 5-7, 7-5, 6-3. The Italian’s game is reminiscent of two recent Wimbledon greats who both had big serves and killer forehands - Pete Sampras and Goran Ivanisevic. 

Hubert Hurkacz Form 


24-year old Polish no.1 Hurkacz is enjoying his best every year on the ATP tour. He began 2021 with a tournament victory at the ATP 250 event at Delray Beach, only his second on the tour. Then in March Hurkacz hit the best form of his life, defeating Denis Shapovalov, Milos Raonic, Stefanos Tsitsipas and Andrey Rublev to reach the final of the ATP Miami Masters 1000 event. 

In the final he faced his good friend Jannik Sinner, with the teenage Italian phenomenon the clear favorite to win. However Hurkacz was victorious 7-6, 6-4, claiming the biggest title of his career. 
In the weeks that followed his Miami victory, Hurkacz won just one match until he hit Wimbledon, and suddenly found his form again. Could he possibly replicate his Miami achievements at SW19? After the drubbing Hurkacz gave him on Wednesday, Roger Federer might think so.
