The dream continues. By defeating Monfils in the fifth set, Matteo Berrettini has reached the semifinals of the US Open 2019: the last Italian to achieve this goal at the American tournament was Corrado Barazzutti 42 years ago. In the semifinals Berrettini will have the most complicated challenge: Rafa Nadal. The Italian tennis player is living a real magic period: the result achieved repays him for all the efforts made during the year to improve his game.
The match against Rafa Nadal will be very difficult and Berrettini will start underdog. The Spaniard has a chance to win the second Grand Slam tournament of 2019. In fact, Federer and Djokovic, the other two favorites to win the 2019 US Open went out in the quarter and round of 16 due to injuries that limited their play. On the way to winning the tournament he has only Berrettini and one between Dimitrov and Medvedev to beat. The Italian player, however, has all the weapons to put Nadal in trouble: the important thing is to maintain a good percentage with the first serve.
The semifinal between Berrettini and Nadal will be the highlight match of the day and unfortunately for the Italian fans it will not start before midnight. Those who can hold out until this hour will be able to watch the match on TV on Eurosport 1, a channel available on Sky and on DAZN.
