Carlos Alcaraz is the world No.1 and Matteo Berrettini is unseeded, but the Wimbledon factor means that, in many people's eyes, it's the Italian who enters this contest as the favorite. He's won 19 of his last 20 matches on grass courts in London, whereas the Spaniard is still a relative novice on this surface. The only thing for certain is that you won't want to miss Alcaraz vs Berrettini today.
Wimbledon is airing for FREE in some countries. But don't worry if you're on holiday while it's on because you can watch Alcaraz vs Berrettini live streams from anywhere with a VPN.
Berrettini's luck with injuries and illness has been so rotten that he entered the tournament ranked at No.37. This is the guy who won Queen's two years running and got to the final the last time he played at Wimbledon. He's had a torrid year and a half, but he's been making up for lost time at the All England Club, hurtling through one of the toughest sections in the draw with relative ease.
After seeing Lorenzo Sonego, Alex de Minaur and Alexander Zverev fall victim to Berrettini's immense power, it's probably safe to assume that the 27-year-old has finally got over the abdominal issue that's been plaguing him all year.
It was Alcaraz that took Berrettini's crown at Queen's last month and, like his opponent, the 20-year-old has only dropped one set at Wimbledon so far. However, it's notable that it happened against Nicolas Jarry, a huge-server in the Berrettini mould. The Italian's pedigree is at a different level to the Chilean's, though. Berrettini he faced just one break point in his last match. It wasn't converted.
Alcaraz and Berrettini have met three times previously, and all three matches went the distance, with the man from Rome winning their only previous five-setter via tie-break. Make sure to catch all the Wimbledon action by tuning into a Alcaraz vs Berrettini live stream. Scroll down for details.
