Matteo Berrettini is currently in great form ahead of the Wimbledon. After a long break due to injury, the Italian star has returned for the grass season. Even after a long break, it looks like he is in great touch. His recent performances have made him a threat to all the players.
Recently, Berrettini was asked who would be tougher to play between Djokovic and Nadal. Without mincing his words, the world number 10 revealed that he found Djokovic to be a bigger threat than Nadal. Moreover, Berrettini said, “I’m not saying it will be easy to beat Rafa, but I think Novak it will be more difficult.”
Berrettini has played Nadal twice in his career. Interestingly, he has lost both matches against the Spaniard. Berrettini last played Nadal in the Australian Open semifinal where he lost the match and Nadal went on to win the title.
On the other hand, Djokovic and Berrettini have faced each other three times in the past. Just like Nadal, Berrettini is yet to beat the Serbian star. The two last met in September 2021 in the US Open where Djokovic won the match in four sets.
