Lorenzo Musetti: ‘Tsitsipas is one of the best guys on tour. I can’t let him dominate me’
Lorenzo Musetti labelled Stefanos Tsitsipas as “one of the best guys on tour” and said he will try not to let the Greek dominate him in their Lyon semi-final clash.
The 19-year-old will meet the world No. 5 in the last four of the ATP 250 tournament on Saturday.
Musetti beat Aljaz Bedene 6-3, 7-6 (7-2) in the quarter-finals today, while Tsitsipas saw off Yoshihito Nishioka in straight sets.
“He is one of the best guys on tour. Acapulco was really tough for me as I played a lot of matches and I didn’t have enough energy to play 100 per cent,” said Musetti in a post-match interview.

“He served really well, and he played well with the forehand, moving me around a lot. I will try to lead the match and try not have him dominate me.”
The Italian was defeated 6-1, 6-3 by the 22-year-old in their only previous clash – in the Acapulco semi-finals two months ago.
