Lorenzo Musetti: "I envy Jannik Sinner because..."

The future hopes of Italian tennis lie mostly in Jannik Sinner and Lorenzo Musetti. The two players undertook a truly incredible path of growth together and in a short time they became part of the world top 100. Of course, the Sinner can boast more important and prestigious results, but also his young countryman (one year younger, 19 compared to the 20 of his teammate in the 2021 edition of the Davis Cup) showed good performances on the court and excellent qualities to become a level player.

The last duel between the two dates back to the tournament in Antwerp, Belgium, in which Sinner's current difference was noted, precisely in terms of experience and safety in the shots, although Musetti was the protagonist of a beautiful match.

To close the season, the boy born in 2002 will take part in the Next Gen Atp Finals in Milan, while the native of Sinner will be at the start of the competition in Stockholm.

Musetti confesses his opinions

Lorenzo Musetti, in an interview with Corriere della Sera, gave his opinion and what he feels about the successes achieved by Jannik Sinner, who reached the best ranking in ninth position (now he has slipped to tenth, overtaken by the Polish Hubert Hurkacz) and triumphed in four tournaments this year, specifically in Melbourne, Washington, Sofia and Antwerp.

He said: "I am so happy for him and I really mean it with my heart. Top 10, Atp Finals, he deserves everything. Everyone knew he had potential, but then the results are another thing. I envy him the constancy of performance; For example, I am still too fluctuating, but I have started having fun again: Milan will be a new beginning."

The Italian also commented on the call-up and the trust placed in him by coach Filippo Volandri. He added and concluded: "I am happy to be part of a young and strong team, which can aim for the Cup. Ready to give my contribution whether on the bench or on the court."

This year, we recall, that for the first time in tennis history an Italian player got the men's singles final at Wimbledon: Matteo Berrettini who lost against Novak Djokovic.
