There was not much difference between them in this set with the exception of 1 break that the Italian conquered in the 7th game (4-3) before winning the set (6-4).
Berrettini won this match even if he scored the same amount of points of Dominic (68 vs. 68).
The Italian served extremely well to win 83% of the points (40/48) behind his first serve, and he won 58% points (15/26) on his second serve. Berrettini won this match even if he wasn’t that great in converting his break points since he converted only 33% (1/3). On the other side, Dominic wasn’t able to conquer any break point (0/3).
