    The only notable error you made is only when you wrote "anyone will fancy him in draw" because you missed to write the "a" as it should be anyone will fancy him in a draw so nothing wrong with your english.

    Berrettini is enjoying a very good season so far. Except of Bublik and Fokina,his defeats are coming from better ranked players: Medvedev,Tsitsipas,Zverev and Djokovic. His record is 26-5 which is pretty decent,i would say.
    So far,he didn't show any sign of injury,fatigue problems..

    But above all this - he've improved his game. Particulary on backhand side. Before,his bh was very vulnerable. Not even average,but poor. These days his bh is solid. Not solid as his forehand,but it's no longer poor..he is now able not just to hit cross-court bh,but also down the line..also his slice is decent enough..so plenty shots to mix with.. of course his serve and fh are stil his "trademark" shots,very powerful shots..
    His footwork is nice, which is very important on grass surface especially

    His return shots are no more than average,but i believe that he could 'live' with it..like i said - tough nutt to crack and don't believe anyone will fancy him in draw.

    Your english is very good @DrO
    Just because it isn't perfect doesn't mean it isn't very good.

    I think it's very hard to go against Medvedev. He is a smart guy, probably one of the most gifted players out there, with incredible game strategy. Every match he wins on the clay makes him exponentially stronger. 
    I really thought he would battle with Tommy Paul, but when the chips were down, he readjusted and brought his A game.
    For me almost a match to bet in play. Evaluate how quickly Medvedev figures out the Opelka serve. If Opelka is struggling to win his serve early on, it's a strong indicator of him losing. And odds won't change that much considering Medvedev is 2.8 to 10.
    Does standing 2 meters behind the baseline work against a player with a rocket for a serve?

    Tsitsipas to win the 4th quarter at 1.72 with bet365
    Laaksonen to beat Hanfmann at 2.20 with bet365
    Vesely vs Khachanov - Over 36.5 Games at 1.83 with bet365
    Lepchenko (-2.5 Games) to beat Shuai Zhang at 1.83 with bet365
    I think Tsitsipas has good draw. He will play Chardy in the 1st round and P.Martinez or Korda in the 2nd one. Isner is the most dangerous player he could face in the 3rd round. Raonic, Tiafoe or Busta in the 4th round. In the QFs he could face Dimitrov, Garin, Opelka or Medvedev. IMO, if Tsitsipas plays as he has done during this year he should beat all these players.
    Laaksonen beat Van Assche, Varillas and JM Cerundolo in the qualification. I saw the last one and I really liked how Laaksonen played. IMO, both players have a similar level (their best ever ranking is exactly the same -93-) but Hanfmann's last results are not good. He retired from Munich due to a neck injury. After that, he won against Griekspoor but he lost against Menezes and Nakashima, both in straight sets. Laaksonen should be a slight favorite considering both players' last matches.
    I think Khachanov shouldn't be with these odds against Vesely. He did not convince me at all this year and he was destroyed by Norrie in his last match (6-1, 6-1). The only time these players have played each other was here in 2020. It was in the 2nd round and Khachanov won, but it was a very tight match (6-1, 6-7, 7-6, 7-6). 
    Lepchenko has beat Rakhimova, Barthel and Friedsam in the qualification. I'm surprised with how much ease she beat Barthel (6-1, 7-5) and Friedsam (6-1, 6-3) in her last 2 matches. Shuai's best surface is hard, by far, and he has a 1-6 record on clay this year. The only player she has beat is Doi, who has a negative record on clay (51-57). She comes from a heavy defeat against Cirstea in Strasbourg (6-2, 6-1).

    Serbia - Portugal over 3.5 @3.70 (local bookie)

    Serbian starting line-up suggest lot of goals. It's stuffed with offensive players,while our defense it's very shaky and not convincing at all.
