Lorenzo Musetti v Sebastian Baez Head to Head
The pair have never played each other before. This will be the first match between Musetti, who is 19 years old, and Baez, who is a year older.
Musetti Struggling Recently
Musetti really booked his place in Milan on the strength of his performances in the first half of the year, when he made the seme-finals in both Acapulco and Lyon, and then led Novak Djokovic by two sets at the French Open before eventually succumbing to the world number one.
He has found results much harder to come by when the tour moved away from his preferred surface of clay, and he briefly took time away from tennis to focus on finishing his high school exams, and to deal with an off-the-court issue.
His form coming into this event has been poor, and he has not been beyond the second round of any tournament he has entered since Roland Garros.
That sequence continued in Paris last week, where he came though qualifying, and beat Laslo Djere of Serbia, the world number 51, only to lose in three sets to the Australian James Duckworth.
Baez’s Stellar Year on the Challenger Tour
Along with fellow Argentine Juan Manuel Cerundulo, Baez is making history in Milan this week, as the first South American players to appear in the tournament.
Not that the world number 111 was among the original qualifiers – he only got his chance ween several higher ranked players withdrew through a combination of injury and other factors.
Despite this, he has enjoyed a highly impressive year on the Challenger circuit, where he has appeared in eight finals, winning five of them, including two last month in Santiago and on home soil in Buenos Aires.
The runner-up in the boys’ singles at the French Open in 2018, it is worth noting that, of is 16 junior tour finals 15 of them have been on clay, whereas Milan is played on indoor, hard courts.
On the main tour he qualified for the Hamburg Open and reached the second round, but then had to retire with injury.
Musetti v Baez Prediction and Tip
Although Musetti’s recent form has been poor, he has the advantage of playing at home in front of an Italian court and,, although he is the younger man, has more experience of the senior tour. Those factors combined make him the favourite.
