The words of Lorenzo Musetti’s coach

Lorenzo Musetti’s coach, Simone Tartarini, spoke to SuperTennis microphones ahead of the big match against Novak Djokovic, valid for the third round of Roland Garros, scheduled for tonight on the 'Philippe-Chatrier', not before 8:15 pm. Any feat by the azure would automatically give world number one to Jannik Sinner, starting next Monday.

"In the evening the conditions are different, Ons Jabeur also told us that,‖ Tartarini began.

With the roof there's a lot of moisture, the balls tend to swell and get dirty. He likes the conditions. Hopefully Novak likes them less, who è is one of the players he has perhaps encountered the most; between practice and matches".

"Lorenzo knows very well that Novak in these tournaments, even if he is not è at his best, he manages to bring his level to the maximum – added the coach of the Carrarino – We will try to prepare the match thinking about what he has to do. Lorenzo had a very good attitude against Monfils, è he was very good. He did what is asked of him, I hope against Novak he continues to do that. In my opinion it could be a very open match if Lorenzo can express the tennis shown against Gael".

" Lorenzo has to get closer to the lines, as we have been saying for a long time now, and he did. Against Monfils we asked him to play tighter diagonals because heé plays very far from the court. Tactically if Lorenzo can get closer to the court and command, even against Djokovic he has a good chance of winning" concluded Tartarini.
