Lorenzo Musetti (25th, Italy) has reached the singles quarterfinals of a major tennis tournament for the first time in his career.

Musetti defeated Taylor Fritz (12th-ranked USA) 3-2 (3-6 7-6<7-5> 6-2 3-6 6-1) in the men’s singles quarterfinals on the 10th day of the Wimbledon Tennis Championships (total prize money: £50 million-$87.5 billion) at the All England Club in London, England, on Tuesday (local time).

Musetti, who reached the last four of a major for the first time in his career, will face Novak Djokovic (No. 2-SERBIA) for a spot in the final.

The men’s singles quarterfinals at the tournament featured Djokovic-Musetti, Carlos Alcaraz (No. 3 Spaniard) and Danil Medvedev (No. 5 Russian).

Musetti, born in 2002, had reached the round of 16 at the 2021 and 2023 French Open before this tournament.

Musetti, who hadn’t faced a seeded player until the fourth round of the tournament, advanced to the quarterfinals where he faced 13th-seeded Fritz in a three-hour, 27-minute full-set thriller.

Fritz, meanwhile, is now winless in four quarterfinal matches at major tournaments.

Musetti’s quarterfinal opponent, Djokovic, is coming off a semifinal win over No. 9 Alex Diminor (AUS) and has the advantage over Musetti in terms of world ranking and fitness.

Djokovic leads their head-to-head head-to-head with 5 wins and 1 loss.

However, in the third round of this year’s French Open, Djokovic pulled out a hard-fought 3-2 (7-5 6-7<6-8> 2-6 6-3 6-0) victory.

His subsequent round of 16 match was also a five-setter, and he was unable to overcome the effects of playing five sets in two consecutive matches, eventually withdrawing in the quarterfinals.

Djokovic underwent knee surgery shortly thereafter and was expected to miss the tournament, but he breezed through to the last four.

Meanwhile, there have been 37 five-set matches in the men’s singles at Wimbledon this year, surpassing the previous records of 35 at this year’s Australian Open and the 1983 U.S. Open. 카지노 커뮤니티
