After the opening two sets were shared on the back of a single break of serve each time, it was Berrettini who brought his A-game in the decider with three breaks of serve.
“It was a really tough match. The conditions [were tough], it was cold and windy. The balls were moving a lot. So I was really focused on my game,” the 23-year-old said.
“After the first set I just told myself to fight game after game, point after point and I’m really happy because it was really difficult.”
