Lorenzo Musetti (born 3 March 2002) is an Italian professional tennis player.[1] He has a career-high singles ATP ranking of World No. 51 achieved on 9 May 2022 and a doubles ranking of World No. 304 achieved on 21 June 2021. Musetti trains at La Spezia TC and Tirrenia.[2]

Professional career

Juniors

He has achieved a career-high ITF juniors ranking of 1 in the world on 10 June 2019.[3][4] On 26 January 2019 Musetti defeated Emilio Nava to win the 2019 Australian Open boys' singles title.[5]

2020: ATP debut

After receiving a wildcard and passing the qualifying, he made his ATP Tour main draw debut in February 2020 at the Dubai Tennis Championships, at the age of 17, where he lost in the first round against Andrey Rublev.

His second main draw tour-level match and first on a Masters 1000 level in his career came after qualifying at the Italian Open, where he defeated three-time Grand Slam champion Stan Wawrinka in straight sets in the first round, becoming the first player born in 2002 to win an ATP match, and former World No. 4 Kei Nishikori in the second round.[6] In October he received a wildcard for the Forte Village Sardegna Open, where he reached his first ATP semifinal, retiring due to an injury against eventual champion Laslo ?ere after trailing 1-4 in the third set.

2021: Top 100, ATP 500 semifinal, Grand Slam debut and fourth round

Musetti was the youngest player to break into the top 100 for the first time in his career by reaching the semifinals of the ATP Tour 500 Mexican Open tournament in March after going through qualifying. There he had his first top 10 win against world no. 9 Diego Schwartzman in three sets. He also beat Frances Tiafoe and 5th-seed Grigor Dimitrov to break into the top 100 and reach his second ATP semifinal, and first at a 500 level, where he was defeated in straight sets by Stefanos Tsitsipas.[7][8] The 19-year-old was the third-youngest semifinalist in the tournament's history. Only Xavier Malisse (1998) and Rafael Nadal (2005) reached the final four in Acapulco at a younger age.[9]

Musetti reached his third ATP semifinal at the Lyon Open in May, where he was again defeated by Tsitsipas.

He capped off the clay season by reaching the fourth round at the French Open, on his Grand Slam championship debut (only the sixth player since 2000 to do so), beating 13th seed David Goffin, Yoshihito Nishioka and Marco Cecchinato in his first five-set match.[10] He had a 2-0 lead in sets against top seed Novak Djokovic in the fourth round, but retired in the 5th set trailing 0-4.[11] As a result of this successful run, he climbed to his best ranking of World No. 57 on 13 September 2021.

At the end of the season, he took part in the Next Generation ATP Finals, where he was eliminated in the Round robin stage as third of his group, having lost to Sebastián Báez[12] and finalist Sebastian Korda, and won to Hugo Gaston.

2022

At the beginning of the season he achieved the quarter-finals at the ATP 500 Rotterdam Open, losing against Ji?í Lehe?ka after having defeated No. 11 Hubert Hurkacz in the second round. In Monte Carlo, Musetti recorded the second top 10 win of his career by defeating world number 9 Félix Auger-Aliassime in the second round.[13]
