THE PREDICTION

World number nine Matteo Berrettini’s grass season got off to s sluggish start in a tough first round match against fellow Italian Stefano Travaglia but the 25-year-old will only get better with each passing round. Berrettini will face possibly the toughest task of the tournament, though, as he takes on Andy Murray for a second time with an adoring crowd ready to back the five-time champion to the hilt. World number 124 Murray played very well for a first match back on tour in three months on a surface that has always been kind to him but Berrettini will be significant step-up in quality from an out-of-sorts Benoit Paire. 34-year-old Murray won their first encounter in straight sets at the 2019 Beijing Open via two tiebreaks and that looks a useful option here to spare picking a result. The opening set could be a very tight one indeed so take at least a tiebreak in this match and leave the winner up to chance. Berrettini won his match against Travaglia via two tiebreaks on Tuesday.
