Matteo Berrettini vs Brandon Nakashima Tips, Prediction & Preview

One of the more highly-anticipated Australian Open men’s matches on Monday features World No. 7 Matteo Berrettini coming up against 20-year-old young gun Brandon Nakashima in the first round.

Berrettini compiled an excellent season in 2021 that ultimately saw him reach his first Grand Slam final at Wimbledon and qualify for the ATP Finals in Turin, but unfortunately he was forced to withdraw due to injury.

The Italian returned to action at the ATP Cup to begin the season, losing to Alex de Minaur and Daniil Medvedev and beating Ugo Humbert of France.

Understandably, Berrettini wasn’t at his best, but he got valuable match practice under his belt and chose to sit out last week’s tournaments in favour of a training block across Sydney and Melbourne.

It took the very best – quite literally – to beat Berrettini at the majors last season, with only Djokovic getting the better of the Italian at the French Open, Wimbledon and US Open. Berrettini had to retire at the Australian Open and went 16-0 against players other than Djokovic across the other three majors.

That isn’t good news for Nakashima, who will be looking to take his game to the next level after a breakthrough 2021 that saw the American crack the top 100.

Nakashima made back-to-back ATP finals in the lead-up to the US Open last year in Los Cabos and Atlanta and enjoyed a great finish to the season by winning a Challenger and performing well at the ATP event in Antwerp, where he beat De Minaur.

The American youngster has a great return of serve and excellent movement, both of which he will be hoping to use to his advantage against the powerful Berrettini.

It’s a genuine danger match for Berrettini if he is off his game, so I’m expecting Nakashima – who made the quarter-finals in Sydney last week – to take a set.

But Berrettini’s slam record over the last year is too good to ignore, so it’s likely the World No. 7 will eventually be able to overwhelm Nakashima with his big serving and forehand to close out the win.
