You can follow our preview free prediction and betting tips on this page.

Corentin Moutet in a very tough second-round matchup

Despite having a good start for his 2021 season, Corentin Moutet couldn’t build on the semi-final appearance in Melbourne. Moreover, the Frenchman has an 11-12 win/loss record in this year.

His best record of the year is on the hard courts winning five and losing three matches. As a result, the 22-year-old did well in beating Travaglia in the first round of the US Open in straight sets.

In fact, that was the third US Open victory of his career. Notably, in 2020, Moutet reached the third round after impressive wind over Daniel Evans and Jiri Vesely. However, he is up against a much tougher opponent in the second round a needs great effort to overcome this obstacle.

Moutet Key Stats

  • Moutet shot 32 winners in his first match at the US Open
  • The Frenchman committed 26 unforced errors
  • 42 games per match is the average number of games Moutet played in Grand Slams this year

Matteo Berrettini looking a bit shaky in his first-round match

There is no doubt that Matteo Berrettini is having the best season of his career. To Illustrate, the Italian reached a career-high eighth in the world. Also, his appearance in the Wimbledon final as the first Italian player was the highlight of his season.

In addition, the sixth seed in the US Open won two titles in London and Belgrade. With an impressive win/loss record of 33-8, Berrettini is one of the top performers on the Tour this season.

Furthermore, in 2019 the 25-year-old made it to the semi-finals in the US Open, losing to Nadal. Meanwhile this year, Berrettini faced some difficulties in his first-round match against Chardy. Eventually, he won in three sets after two tiebreak sets.

Berrettini KeyStats

  • Berrettini hit 37 winners in his first match at the US Open
  • The Italian won 81 % of the points on his first serve
  • 34.4 games per match is the average number of games Berrettini played in Grand Slams this year.

Corentin Moutet vs Matteo Berrettini Prediction

In spite of winning his first-round match in three sets, Berrettini looked shaky. In fact, since Wimbledon, the Italian has played just three matches as he lost in the second round of Cincinnati. Thus, the Italian needs to find his best form quickly and avoid any surprises. 

On the other hand, Moutet is a young player who is trying to edge his way through the ranks. We don’t see him posing a big danger to his opponent. Still, the Frenchman needs to go out there and do all he can to put pressure on Berrettini.

Obviously, the bookies are favoring Berrettini to win in straight sets. Bet365 is offering odds of 1.66 for such a bet. We will back that since we think Berrettini’s powerful serve and forehands will be too much for the Frenchman to handle.
