Novak Djokovic Form


Novak Djokovic started 2021 by winning his 9th Australian Open title. 

He didn’t play again until the clay court swing in Europe. The Serbian failed to fire in Monte Carlo and Belgrade before reaching the Rome Masters final, going down 7-5 1-6 6-3 to Rafael Nadal in Italy.

The World No.1 went back to Belgrade and was too good for a weak field, beating World No.255 Alex Molcan 6-4 6-3 in the final.

Djokovic won in straight sets in his first three matches at the French Open, beating Tennys Sandgren, Pablo Cuevas and Ricardas Berankis without much fuss.

The Serbian had a rough start against World No.76 Lorenzo Musetti in the fourth round. He lost the first two sets but fought back and went through 6-7 6-7 6-1 6-0 4-0 after Musetti retired in the 5th set.

Matteo Berrettini Form


Matteo Berrettini began the clay court swing with a first round defeat to Alejandro Davidovich Fokina in Monte Carlo.

The 25-year-old fell to Stefanos Tsitsipas in the Rome Masters third round before heading to Roland Garros.

Berrettini beat Taro Daniel, Federico Coria and Soon Woo Kwon at the French Open before a walkover against Roger Federer in the fourth round.
