There will be no Italian in the semi-finals of the Masters 1000 in Rome. Last transalpine representative in the table and seeded number 4, Matteo Berrettini gave in in three sets against Casper Ruud. Thanks to an entry break, the world number 8 has yet started the meeting in the best possible way. After having saved two break points and then missed the opportunity to conclude the first set on the service of the Norwegian, the Italian concluded on the service after having discarded a last break point. The second set had a reverse scenario because it was Casper Ruud who made the entry break and, solid in service, came back up to a shutout after missing a set point on Matteo Berrettini’s serve. The 34th in the world confirmed his ascendancy with the break from the first game of the last set before seeing his opponent quickly come back to height to take him in an undecided decisive game. But it was Casper Ruud who had the last word on his first match point (4-6, 6-3, 7-6 in 3:00). Novak Djokovic or Dominik Koepfer will be his opponent this Sunday for a place in the final.
