Matteo Berrettini defeated Hubert Hurkacz in four sets to reach the Wimbledon final and achieve a piece of tennis history.

The number seven seed triumphed over the 24-year-old Pole 6-3, 6-0, 6-7, 6-4 in an absorbing semi-final on Centre Court.

The 25-year-old is the first Italian to reach a Wimbledon singles final, and it will be the first major final of his career.

Berrettini got himself on top in the contest early on, and looked to be cruising to a straight sets victory, only for Hurkacz to come roaring back in the third set.

However, after a taking a moment off court, Berrettini was able to compose himself again and reassert his authority in the match.

“I have no words,” Berrettini said on court after the match. “I need a couple hours to under what happened here. “I played a great match. I’m really happy to be here

“I never dreamed about this as it was just too much. I’m really happy.”

The 25-year-old will face either top seed and five-time champion Novak Djokovic or No. 10 seed Denis Shapovalov in Sunday’s men’s singles final.
