Matteo Berrettini is among the favorites at Wimbledon thanks to his big-hitting game and his current form. The ninth-ranked Italian, who reached round four at the All-England Club in 2019, powered his way to the Queen’s Club title earlier this month.

Berrettini has a long way to go before thinking about a much bigger title in London, but he is off to strong start after beating Guido Pella 6-4, 3-6, 6-4, 6-0 as first-round action wrapped up Wednesday afternoon. The No 7 seed saw his successful service games streak end at 57 when he was broken in the second set, but he did not face another break point all day. Berrettini finished with 20 aces while advancing in two hours and 16 minutes.
