Matteo Berrettini became the first Italian to reach the Wimbledon men’s singles final with a dominant victory over Poland’s Hubert Hurkacz.
The seventh seed and Queen’s champion used his big forehand and serve to good effect in a 6-3 6-0 6-7 (3-7) 6-4 win.
He will play top seed Novak Djokovic in Sunday’s showpiece, just hours before his nation take on England in football’s Euro 2020 final.
Berrettini is the first Italian man to reach a Grand Slam final since 1976.
“I have no words, really,” Berrettini said.
“I need a couple of hours to understand what happened. I think I never dreamed about this because it was too much for a dream.”
