Queen's Championships: Berrettini Beats Norrie In The Final To Clinch Title
Italian top seed Matteo Berrettini marked himself down as a genuine Wimbledon threat after beating Britain's Cameron Norrie 6-4, 6-7 and 6-3 to win the Queen's Club Tennis title.
The 25-year-old used his huge serve and forehand to great effect once again to claim his fifth career title and become the first Italian champion at the prestigious event.
Berrettini banged down his 19th ace as he served for the match and claimed victory on his first match point. The world number nine did not drop serve since the first round and held 46 service games in a row.
World number 41 Norrie dug deep to take the match to a deciding set but faltered at 3-4 in the deciding set as he became Berrettini's third British victim of the week.
He also beat five-time champion Andy Murray and Dan Evans on his way to the final on his tournament debut.
