Musetti Earns Chance To Thrill Home Fans In Milan
Lorenzo Musetti is the sixth player to qualify for the Intesa Sanpaolo Next Gen ATP Finals in Milan, to be played from 9-13 November.
The Italian will make his debut at the 21-and-under-tournament after enjoying a standout year in which he rose from No. 128 in the FedEx ATP Rankings to a career-high No. 57 in September.
Musetti earned his first Top 10 win when he upset then-World No. 9 Diego Schwartzman en route to the semi-finals of the Abierto Mexicano Telcel presentado por HSBC in Acapulco. He also advanced to the last four in Lyon, where he defeated fellow #NextGenATP stars Felix Auger-Aliassime and Sebastian Korda.
In his maiden major appearance at Roland Garros, the 19-year-old reached the fourth round. Musetti led World No. 1 Novak Djokovic by two-sets-to-love at that stage before the Serbian rallied to advance.
Musetti joins Jannik Sinner, Auger-Aliassime, Carlos Alcaraz, Korda and Jenson Brooksby in the Milan field.

Musetti has a tattoo of a heartbeat with a tennis racquet on his left tricep. “You can imagine how important tennis is in my life,” he said about the tattoo.
