Lorenzo Musetti finally expresses on the comparison with Roger Federer

Lorenzo Musetti qualified for the third round of the Roland Garros 2023. The challenge against the Russian Shevchenko, one of the fittest athletes around could create some headaches but the Italian played great, never gave up and really left few games to the opponent.

He now heads to the next match where he will face the British Cameron Norrie, another high-level challenge. The blue number two has about this and much more during an interview with Eurosport. Here are his words: "It was a very positive evening, it was a game that may seem simple from the outside but it saw me play all the points 100% and this is the fact that makes me most proud, I'm working on this Very.

In general, sometimes he can give you too much confidence and perhaps it never hurts, the next match will be difficult and will bring you new difficulties. Definitely better to get some energy and confidence in this match and now head to the next match against Norrie.

We've only faced each other once in Barcelona and I got the better of it, but now surely he'll want to take his revenge and I'll have to be careful. It's going to be a best-of-five match here, it's going to be a long and physical match and we'll see who comes through."

The tennis player also spoke of a problem related to many tennis players, the differences between those who play in the morning and in the evening and he was quite tepid on this matter, here are his words: "I haven't noticed huge differences between day and night conditions, I think it's a climatic condition and nothing else.

I enjoyed playing on the Lenglen." He then talked about the comparison con Roger Federer: "Did Wilander compare me to Kuerten and Federer? Federer was my idol, Kuerten is one of my coach's idols, they are two one-handed backhand legends and I'm really happy to be matched with them." Musetti has always been considered one of the outsiders of the tournament but the calendar is certainly not on his side with a series of matches, starting from the next one, which promise to be very complicated.
