Lorenzo Musetti Facts
- When Lorenzo had qualified for the 2020 Rome Masters, it was the first time in his career that he had qualified for a Masters 1000 tournament. In the first round of the tournament, just his 2nd main draw tour-level match, he had defeated 3-time Grand Slam champion Stan Wawrinka in straight sets. This had made him the first player born in 2002 to win an ATP match. In his very next match, he had defeated then world number 4 Kei Nishikori, again in straight sets.
- In October 2020, at the Forte Village Sardegna Open, he had reached his first ATP semifinal. In the semi-final match, against eventual champion Laslo Đere, he was forced to retire in the 3rd set after sustaining an injury.
- In March 2021, he had become the youngest player to break into the ‘Top 100’ of the official ATP (Association of Tennis Professionals) singles rankings when he had reached the semi-final stage of the Mexican Open in Acapulco. During the tournament, he had notched his first win against a ‘Top 10’ ranked player when he had beaten then world number 9 Diego Schwartzman in 3 sets.
- Aged 19, he was the 3rd-youngest semi-finalist in the tournament’s history. Xavier Malisse (1998) and Rafael Nadal (2005) were the only players who had reached the ‘final four’ stage of the tournament at a younger age.
