Lorenzo Musetti beaten in quarterfinals in Hamburg

With the same score, 7-5 6-3, with which Elisabetta Cocciaretto beat Russian Elina Avanesyan in the quarterfinals in Lausanne, Lorenzo Musetti, world number 18, was defeated in the quarterfinals in Hamburg by Serbian Laslo Djere, number 57 but an excellent clay specialist.

It was a bad blow for Lorenzo, who lost the points from last year’s success, his first on the ATP circuit, when he beat none other than Carlos Alcaraz in the final.

In the first set it was the 21-year-old from Carrara who went ahead by a break in the fifth game and then led 4-2, but then got overrun at 4-5 and lost the decisive serve in the 12th game.

In the second set Lorenzo never goes ahead in the score and does not even have a break point at his disposal, instead he suffers the decisive break at 15 when he is down 3-4 and a few minutes later Djere closes the match after less than an hour and a half of play.
