Italian star Lorenzo Musetti pulled out his box of tricks to battle past Marco Cecchinato and reach the second week at the French Open. 

The 19-year-old came through a five set thriller against his compatriot in three hours and 9 minutes 3-6 6-4 6-3 3-6 6-3 to book a potential meeting with World No 1 Novak Djokovic in the fourth round.

However, it was not only Musetti’s all-round performance that caught the eye, but also two outrageous flair shots which showed just how good the Italian really is.

The first trick shot was a simply stunning behind-the-back volley to break his opponent after Cecchinato delivered a subtle underarm serve.

However, the Italian teenager wasn’t finished there. For all the world it looked as though Cecchinato had produced a perfectly measured lob, before Musetti replied as only Musetti can.

Musetti will be buoyed by a great display against the former Roland Garros semi-finalist. The 19-year-old recorded a 72% first serve percentage, winning 65% of first serve points.

The youngster also managed to save seven of the 10 break points he saved, making him incredibly tough to beat.
