Wimbledon Quarterfinals: Matteo Berrettini to meet Hubert Hurkacz in semifinals, defeats Felix Auger Aliassime in 4 sets marathon- Seventh seed Matteo Berrettini has defeated 16th seed Felix Auger-Aliassime in Wimbledon quarterfinals 2021.

The two men are regular practice partners and at times there was little to separate them, but in the end the Italian’s greater experience carried the day, 6-3, 5-7, 7-5, 6-3.

It was not all one-way traffic, and there were times in the middle of the match when Berrettini was beset by unforced errors as his ground strokes buckled under the pressure of the Canadian’s game. However, he will now face Hubert Hurkacz in the semi-finals.

The Queen’s champion and No.7 seed is the first Italian to reach this stage for 23 years and he reached it with a flurry of aces, 67 in all.

Before Auger-Aliassime could establish himself in the first set he found himself two breaks down and it slipped away in 38 minutes with a third break of service.

The second set was closer but, as the shadows lengthened on No.1 Court, the younger man recovered from 0-40 on his own serve at 3-4 just as the Italian’s ground strokes began to go awry. Auger-Aliassime took it 7-5.

Berrettini eged the third set but he raced away at the start of the fourth, establishing a 3-0 lead. That brutal serve saw him home, taking his aces tally to 13 for the match.

Berrettini was heading into the contest after wins over Ivashka, Bedene, Van de Zandsculp, and Pella. Notably, he had won the finals of Queen Club Championship- a grass-court ATP event- last month. He would look to continue his dominance in the important stage of the tournament.
