Lorenzo Musetti shone on grass

Lorenzo Musetti eliminated the number 2 seed at the Atp 500 at Queen’s. A wonderful comeback that completed by the Italian at the expense of Alex De Minaur, back from the victory at s'hertogenbosch resulting in best ranking in seventh place in the standings.

Despite a first set almost without history won by the Australian 6-1, the Blue managed not to be demoralized and remained in the game. In a match between two players who do not have in the service their best weapon, the Tuscan has been able to find the right countermeasures to put in trouble the 25-year-old Sydney in the exchanges.

Lorenzo Musetti said at the end of the game: "Terrible start. I said I could play much better and I showed it in the end. I couldn’t find the right rhythm, especially at the service.

Then I started to serve well and play with more confidence. Obviously beating Alex on the grass is one of the most difficult challenges to overcome. So I’m very happy to be in the second round of the Queen’s tournament.

A fantastic event, with a fantastic audience". Musetti added: "I’m really happy to have won the second round. Mine, so far, has been a season full of ups and downs. I’m trying to regain the confidence to express my true level and I started the grass season well.

Today I knew it would be difficult, but I had clear ideas about what I had to do. I play well and I am proud of this victory".
