“My thinking has changed,” said Lorenzo Musetti.

On hard courts, Lorenzo Musetti has advanced noticeably over the course of the season, displaying numerous improvements in his captivating game. Given the last-minute absence of the Dane Holger Rune, the blue is now required to do a task that is both challenging and hardly obvious: win the Next Gen ATPFinals in order to honour the prediction made on the night.

By defeating the Taiwanese Tseng in three sets on Tuesday, the Italian got off to a strong start and moved up into the red group. The Carrara native discussed the Milan premiere at a press conference. He said: “It was undoubtedly a stronger debut for me than in 2021.

I’m pleased with myself because I had a tremendous match, with one break per set that was crucial. I’m particularly happy for the audience, the pleasant mood, and the numerous kids that came to see me.”

“My thinking has changed,” said Lorenzo Musetti.

The gifted 20-year-old made the following views about Fabio Fognini‘s attendance at the event in response to his presence: “Given our close friendship, Fabio assured me he would attend.

Besides playing tennis, we are having fun together. Davis? We have a team that is absolutely competitive with all of them, and it is an event that we are all waiting for right now. We will try since we are a decent group.” Given the large number of young athletes that are competing well in the Tour, he commented on potential format changes “The discussion of age is mostly irrelevant; if one is successful in getting over this challenge, it is on his merit, and he must show that he is capable of doing so.

At age 18, Sinner and Alcaraz triumphed. Rune has 19 after forfeiting. A ranking cap might be more sensible.” He then said, signalling with his comment: “Nobody can guarantee a win, but that is how every competition plays out.

Since moving to Australia at the start of 2022, my mindset has changed, and now my constant goal is to fall to the bottom. The objective is to learn how to adapt, although in my opinion the Next Gen format tends to flatten the level a little.”
