Berrettini is coming off a 7-6, 5-7, 7-5 win over Roman Safiullin in the first round. This is only the fourth tournament for Berrettini this season, and he reached the final in two of them. In Phoenix, he lost to Nuno Borgues, and in Marrakech, he lost to Roberto Carballes Baena.

Prediction and Conclusion

Five years after their last match, Matteo Berrettini and Denis Shapovalov will face each other in the second round of the ATP Stuttgart. Both players are far from their best form, and they hope that this season they will get back on the right track. Both of them are very confident playing on grass since Shapovalov has reached the semifinals at Wimbledon, while Berrettini has gone even further and made it to the final. Shapovalov won both of the previous matches against the Italian, but looking at the scores, the last four sets between the two have gone to a tiebreak. Given that and the way both players serve on grass, we are going with over 0.5 tiebreaks in the match.
