From champion to eliminated in the first round. So, she went non-stop on the road Diego Schwartzman (9 degrees). The connection between Buenos Aires and Acapulco was troubled and Pique paid a heavy price for all his mistakes against a young player with lots of talent and a future. Italian Lorenzo MusettiThe 19-year-old and 120th in the world ranking, coming from the ranking, had his life victory by 6-3, 2-6, 6-4 in Mexican Cement.
Musetti had delivered his introductory speech at the M1000 in Rome last year, when he reached from the playoffs to the third round after eliminating Stan Wawrinka, 16 wins (3 major championships), and Ki Nishikori, the holder of 12 Cups. . But yesterday he showed he has the hand to fight the greats, the top ten. He has a great backhand and handles shots very well: he hits him loosely while driving and also enjoys shots. And so he made Diego running, not seen as comfortable as in the brick dust of Buenos Aires tennis, raising his fourth cup, first at home.
Lorenzo Musetti has a good hand and a great future in the ring.
Schwartzman started the first set well, going 3-2, but when sent to confirm the break he escaped. And not only that game: but the next game as well, to start at a disadvantage. In Chapter 2 he raised the level and extended the definition, but non-coercive errors reappear.
Musetti led 4-0 and nervously got on his nerves when it was time to identify him. He couldn’t score three match points at 5-2, nor one at 5-3 and finally got the score in the tenth game. For Diego, it was a bad move before the US tour; Lorenzo, to the next stage.
Diego, imprecise, was not as comfortable as in Buenos Aires.
