Among the various topics, Tartarini also spoke about a tennis player who has always had a great relationship with Musetti, namely Fabio Fognini. The man commented: "Fabio is a great player of tennis and I would have really liked to coach him.

We have already demonstrated all this in Malaga, even though there are several competitive teams, I believe we are the two or three best." Tartarini also expressed about the relationship with the other coaches on the Tour, clarifying that he often stays in contact with them and tries to analyze various topics regarding the development of tennis.
