Lorenzo Musetti beat David Goffin in straight sets to reach the French Open second round in his first Grand Slam main draw match.

The 19-year-old triumphed 6-0, 7-5, 7-6 (7-3) against the world No. 13 in the first round in Paris.

The world No. 76 took the opening set in just 30 minutes – winning 28 of 43 points played and after saving four break points.

Musetti then edged a much tighter second set after securing the only break at 5-5 – having saved a set point when serving at 4-5.

The Italian twice failed to serve out the match in the third set at 5-4 and 6-5, but closed it out with an impressive tiebreak where he did not drop a point on serve.

The unseeded ATP star was strong on serve in the match – making 71% of his first serves and winning 71% of the points when he did. He also won a decent 50% of points behind his second serve.

He saved six of the eight break points he faced, and won 47% of points played on the Belgian’s serve.

Musetti will face either Jo-Wilfried Tsonga or Yoshihito Nishioka in the second round.
