Defeat without appeal for Musetti

Lorenzo Musetti’s adventure in the Wimbledon men’s tournament already ends in the first round: the young Carrara player can do nothing, in fact, against an opponent of the level of Taylor Fritz (No. 14 Atp, No. 11 in the seeding), able to close the accounts in one hour and three quarters, with the final score of 6-4, 6-4, 6-3. Therefore, it will be Fritz who will face, in the second round, Alastair Gray (No. 288 Atp), surprise executioner of a top 100 such as Taiwanese Tseng (6-3, 6-3, 7-6(3) the match’s partials).

Since 2011, Novak Djokovic has won the tournament six times, which was not played in 2020 because of the pandemic. When it was not the Serb who lifted the top trophy it was Roger Federer, in 2012 and 2017, and Andy Murray, in 2013 (beating Djokovic himself in the final, by the way), and 2016. Nadal, who is still in the running for the Grand Slam in 2022, last triumphed on London’s grass in 2010, defeating Berdych in three sets in the last act: 7-5, 6-3, 6-4.
