The Italian Lorenzo Musetti eliminated the Serbian Dusan Lajovic (6-7 7-6 6-3) and advanced to the second round of the Hamburg tournament on Monday midday at the Am Rothenbaum in Hamburg.
The 20-year-old hadn’t won a single match on the ATP Tour since the Masters 1000 in Madrid last May. Lorenzo Musetti had chained five consecutive defeats during his appearances at Roland-Garros, Stuttgart, Queen’s, Wimbledon and Bastad.
Musetti, ranked 62nd in the ATP, will face the winner of the upcoming match between Finland’s Emil Ruusuvuori and Argentina’s Diego Schwartzman, seeded No. 3 in the second round of the German Tennis Championships.
