Berrettini wins MercedesCup 2019

Berrettini wins MercedesCup 2019

Stuttgart,

This year’s MercedesCup winner is Matteo Berrettini. The 23-year old Italien won the exciting finale at Stuttgart’s Weissenhof against 18-year old Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime in 1:47 hours 6-4, 7-6(11).

Berrettini, currently no. 30 in the world, only had to save two break points throughout the whole week (both against Jan-Lennard Struff in the semis). In the finals, he was mostly untouchable on serve. Though serving 16 aces (Berrettini only 6) Auger-Aliassime struggled at times when on serve. Berrettini converted his first break point to take a 2-1 lead in the first set and then went on to serve out the set.

Tie-break thriller
In the second set, Berrettini once again had three break points at 2-2 and 0-40, but Auger-Aliassime was able to save them all. The set – and in the end the match – had to be decided in the tie-break. Auger-Aliassime had two set points at 6-4, but Berrettini saved both. After that it was a see-saw battle, in which Auger-Aliassime had five set points, but ultimately it was Berrettini who converted his third match point to take the match.

For Berrettini it was already his second tournament victory of the year after hoisting the trophy in Budapest. For Auger-Aliassime, on the other hand, it was the third loss in a final in 2019 after Lyon and Rio de Janeiro. Still noteworthy: The Mercedescup was the first professional grass tournament for the young Canadian and reaching the finals should not be underestimated. Berrettini not only won 250 points for the ATP world rankings, but also the prize money of 117.050 Euro and a brand-new Mercedes Mercedes-Benz EQC Edition 1886.

The doubles title went to John Peers (AUS)/Bruno Soares (BRA) who beat Rohan Bopanna (IND)/Denis Shapovalov (CAN) 7-5, 6-3.
