Key Stat

  • Musetti is 10-0 in tour-level tiebreakers.

The 19-year-old Italian first made his presence known last fall at his home tournament. As a qualifier, Musetti scored back-to-back wins over Stan Wawrinka and Kei Nishikori to reach the third round of the Internazionali BNL d’Italia in his first Masters 1000 main draw.

The win over Wawrinka made him the first man born in 2002 to win an ATP match.


A junior Australian Open champion, he matched that result in Miami to earn his Top 100 debut and keep building a new generation of Italian tennis alongside Jannik Sinner.

“Of course, we motivate each other,” he said of his countryman, who is just under seven months older than Musetti.

“We push each other to be better and to play better and to be more professional.”

Musetti moved on to enjoy an impressive clay-court swing, pushing Stefanos Tsitsipas to three sets in Lyon and taking the first two sets against Novak Djokovic at Roland Garros.

"I came here to play my first Grand Slam in the main draw, and I made second week taking two sets against the No. 1 in the world," he said after reaching the fourth round.

"I think I took away a lot of feelings, a lot of emotions, but a lot of experience. Now I know how can I play, how far I am from the biggest in the tour, like Nole, so I know that if I play good I can stay at this level.

"I will go home, rest a bit, and work for Wimbledon."
