Lorenzo Musetti vs Michael Mmoh: Prediction
The Italian Musetti has a fantastic backhand which is precise and penetrative. His ability to win intense three set matches is something that belies his young age of only nineteen. Mmoh has not played enough tennis in this calendar year, and has looked out of touch from time to time. Musetti looks like the favourite to win this.
Match Prediction: Lorenzo Musetti will beat Michael Mmoh in three sets.
