Lorenzo Musetti ITA, 2002.03.03
Lorenzo Musetti : “We both played well. It ‘s true I have managed some feats, some magic … there was also a bit of luck. I’m really happy: for me it’s a dream come true. All the work, all the sacrifices made me grow as a boy and as a player. For me it is the first time here but I feel at home. I will try to play the game, to enjoy it, to have fun: I will try to give my all to beat Novak. We will probably play on the Centrale and this makes me very happy ”.
Marco Cecchinato : “In my opinion I had too many chances in the second set to go on 2 sets to 0 and instead I lost that fraction.
I didn’t take advantage of the many opportunities I had during the match. Musetti played one of the best matches in his career.
Today at some point it really seemed like fantatennis: blows from behind the back, passers-by on the line, 200 lines taken. These are things I’ve never seen. Bravo Lorenzo and rightly he went to the round of 16 ”.
