Matteo Berrettini became the first Italian to reach at the US Open men’s semi-finals after Having a slugfest against Gael Monfils on Wednesday since 1977.
Berrettini, the 24th seed, also made some enormous hitting battle to a lung-busting 3-6 6-3 6-2 3-6 7-6 (7-5) victory in climatic states under the roof of Arthur Ashe.
The 23-year-old won an epic poem competition lasting a shade later shooting his match point to emerge on top of a roller-coaster ride of the experience.
“Right now I don’t remember any issues. Only the match purpose,” said Berrettini, who dropped here in the very first round this past year. “While I was playing I thought, this is only one of the greatest matches I ever watched. I was enjoying with, but I was watching too.”
He served 15 aces and hit 53 winners, winning a game despite making 64 unforced errors. Monfils made 51 unforced errors and served as 17 faults.
Berrettini will hope to go one better than his compatriot Corrado Barazzutti, who dropped to Jimmy Connors at Forest Hills 42 decades back, when he chooses the winner of the past quarter-final between three-time champion Rafael Nadal and Diego Schwartzman of Argentina for a spot in the closing.
