US Open Day 5 Predictions Including Andy Murray vs Matteo Berrettini

Andy Murray US Open 2022

Andy Murray takes on Matteo Berrettini for a spot in the round of 16 at the US Open, can Murray turn back the clock and continue his charge at the last Grand Slam of the season? We have predictions for every day 5 match in New York including Nick Kyrgios match.

Andy Murray vs Matteo Berrettini

Damian Kust: It’s tough to know what to expect from Matteo Berrettini right now as his performance in the second round against Hugo Grenier was really shaky. Faster hard court conditions should be advantageous to him and Andy Murray’s returning isn’t quite where it used to be. This could get very complicated though. Berrettini in 5

Jack Edward: In potentially the biggest match of the last five years of his career, Andy Murray will do everything in his power to be ready for this one. He’s beaten Matteo Berrettini on a hard-court in worse form than this and should be able to exploit the backhand of the Italian in the same manner as top-10 players before him. The journey will continue. Murray in 4

Pedro Cachin vs Corentin Moutet

Damian: Pedro Cachin capitalizing on his phenomenal Challenger streak to win these two marathons at the US Open has been a great story. That’s probably where his New York dream ends though, Corentin Moutet is just a far superior hard-court player and already beat him in Lyon this year (on clay). Moutet in 4

Jack: I’ve said it was once, I’ll say it again – never underestimate form! Pedro Cachin survived a second-consecutive fifth-set-tiebreak to defeat Brandon Holt and, though his legs will be aching, will feel like he’s playing with house money. Corentin Moutet will be willing to scrap as hard as he can for this one but Cachin just doesn’t know how to lose right now. Cachin in 5

Tommy Paul vs Casper Ruud

Damian: Tommy Paul has been very up-and-down thus far and playing ten sets thus far might come back to bite him, especially with a matchup that should require a big physical effort. Casper Ruud hasn’t been perfect so far, but he’s improved enough on hard courts that it will take a special performance to stop him. Ruud in 5

Jack: Casper Ruud has looked vulnerable sporadically but I’m not sure Tommy Paul is the man to take advantage if Ruud’s having an underpar day, especially after being pushed to five in his previous two matches. Ruud hasn’t been challenged too much himself and should be able to keep Paul moving at the very least. Ruud in 4

Pablo Carreno Busta vs Alex de Minaur

Damian: Low-key match of the round? Both guys are criminally underrated but very capable of deep Slam runs. They’ve gone far at the US Open before and this should be a cracker. Alex de Minaur’s improved serve and a bit more attacking potential could give him a slight edge, but it’s basically a coin toss. de Minaur in 5

Jack: This is a difficult match to call. Based on the tournament so far however, Alex De Minaur has looked the slightly sharper of the two players though Pablo Carreno Busta has arguably had the tougher set of opponents. I’ll still give the slight edge to PCB as I’m not sure how De Minaur will be able to consistently hurt the Spaniard without serving exceptionally well. Carreno Busta in 5
