Roland Garros, Italy is full: Berrettini, Sinner, Musetti and Cecchinato join Fognini in the third round of the Grand Slam. Out Seppi

Italy is full of qualifiers in the third round of the Roland Garros. After the success of Fabio Fognini Wednesday, on the day on the red clay in Paris, it was Jannik’s turn Sinner, Matteo Berrettini, Lorenzo Musetti and Marco Cecchinato take off the pass for the last appointment of the first week of the Grand Slam. Out instead Andreas Seppi.

The South Tyrolean won the blue derby against Gianluca Mager: after going 2-0 to zero, the 19-year-old lost the third set 6-3 and he settled the opponent in the fourth with the same score. Berrettini instead played on velvet against the Argentine Federico Coria: 6-3 6-3 6-2 without hesitation and is now the number 9 seeded tournament expected by Kwon Soon-woo. The South Korean tennis player, born in 1997, eliminated Andreas Seppi in the second round with a score of 6-4 7-5 7-5.

Proof without flaws also for Lorenzo Musetti, in the first Slam of his career: the young blue has stretched the Japanese Yoshihito Nishioka for 7-5 6-3 6-2 and reaches the third act of Roland Garros with zero sets lost after the 3-0 trimmed in the first round to the Belgian Goffin. Victory also for Marco Cecchinato versus Alex De Minaur, n.21 of the seed: the 29-year-old from Palermo went on 2-0 and then lost the third set 6-3, but found his best tennis in the fourth set and found the qualification in the tournament in which, in 2018, he reached the semifinal.
