Hamburg will host the first-ever showdown between the two tennis players.

The Hamburg tournament could be remembered as the first tournament in the ATP 500 category put in the trophy cabinet by Lorenzo Musetti, who by the way is in his first final in a competition of such lineage. The last act of the tournament on German soil also represents the sixth ATP final for Carlos Alcaraz, who so far can boast of an unblemished roster: in fact, there are 5 victories, out of as many finals, for the Murcia phenomenon.

Already certain to reach the number 40 ranking position with only landing the last match of the competition, Musetti would reach number 31 in case of a victory against Alcaraz. Who, at the same time, would thus cash in on his first career upset in a final. The opportunity is really one of those greedy ones: after the exploit of Jannik Sinner, who beat the Spaniard in four sets at Wimbledon, another Italian can give a displeasure to what many think could even be Rafa Nadal’s designated heir in the history of Iberian tennis and not only.
