Some really impressive stuff by the Italian. I saw him playing first on clay back in April (in that match he wasn't at his best tbf), but here he still excels after his good run in Stuttgart.
Some very clutch decisions, really hard to figure out by Khachanov. Very good at the back of the court and also at the net.
Finishing with an agressive volley at the end.
We have a new prospect here, for sure, a resident Top 10er to come at least.

Better and more complete player won, never lost serve and score could've been harsher (had bp for 5-0 in the first, and in 4 different return games in the second). H2H now 3-0 and top-20 ranking in sight, his current level on grass is surely top-15 at least.

Khachanov is seriously overranked, did nothing all year besides a pretty lucky draw at RG.

Matteo showed great tennis and was much better player today. It could've been 6-0 6-2, but he was too nervous during bp chances and Khachanov was clutch. The tie-break was very high quality.

Expected result, Berretini was even the bookies favourite here. Actually back-to-back matches for Khachanov where he has been the betting underdog. Has this ever happened before with a top 10 player agaist two players ranked outside the top 20? Probably not too often.

he is on a roll but i am worried he is going to overplay and crash out early at wimbledon.

He could be very dangerous at Wimbledon

I really hope he skips Eastbourne to save himself for Wimbledon.

Berrettini :dance:
Khachanov :hug:

Only watched the second set but it was good tennis from both :yeah: The Italian had many chances to break but Khacha dug deep and at least made the set competitive. Yet the winner was never in doubt - think hope Berrettini comes through this half now :)

Heh Berrettini is having a great run of form. Excellent stuff, I hope he beats Goffin too.
