Lorenzo Musetti in fluency: Chun-Hsin Tseng ends up knocked out

Lorenzo Musetti’s experience at the Atp Next Gen Finals in Milan got off to a great start: the Tuscan tennis player overcame Chun-Hsin Tseng with a score of 4-2, 4-2, 4-2. Coming back from the quarterfinal knockout at the Bercy Masters 1000 against Djokovic, Musetti proved from the start to be clearly superior of his opponent, who however fought until the end, also unleashing some surprise shots.

The award-winning Intesa Sanpaolo Next Gen ATP Finals, held for the first time in 2017, feature the best seven under-21 players of the season, plus a local wild card, staged in Milan. The event proposes a series of rule changes and innovations aimed at creating a faster, cutting-edge, TV-friendly game geared toward attracting new fans and younger fans, while maintaining the basic elements beloved by traditional fans of the discipline.

Played on a singles-only court (no aisles), matches are staged with a shorter format – match three sets out of five, four-game sets (Tie-Break on 3-all) and scoring in the ‘killer point’ game with no advantages – electronic “Hawk-Eye Live” refereeing, no-let rule, player coaching and ‘free movement’ rule to allow fans to move freely in and out of the stadium. The tournament takes place over five days, with two Italian rounds, followed by the semifinals and final.
