Matteo Berrettini proves once again that he is a pioneer in the field of turf in the modern competition. Last week, the Italian won the title at the Stuttgart event. In this he already reached the semi-finals of the prestigious tournament in London. In Friday’s quarterfinals he defeated Tommy Ball 6:4, 6:2.
“I am very happy,” said the 26-year-old from Roma, who won the seventh game in a row, in an interview on the field. – It was a tough day. It was windy and hot. I made some mistakes in the beginning, but I fought and the longer the match, the better I played.
The runner-up and defending his Cinch Championship title Berrettini (three yards, four breaks and 17 finals on Friday) will face Boutique Van de Zandschulp in the semi-finals. The Dutchman won with Alejandro Davidovic and for the first time in his career he will appear in the semi-finals of the tournament, which was held on grass.

“I don’t want to wake up from this dream,” Ryan Peniston said after reaching the quarter-finals. However, the 26-year-old Briton, who made his main series debut, woke up on Friday. He lost 6:4, 3:6, 3:6 with Philip Krajinovic.
Krajinovic, who considers this the best performance on the grass of his career, will fight for the final with Marin Cilic, the “seven” of the championship. The Croatian, Cinch champion in 2012 and 2018, beat Emil Rosovori 7-6 (2) 6-4 and won the 80th match on the green roof in the history of his professional debut, including a 35th place at Queen’s Club facilities.
