Lorenzo Musetti vs Sebastian Baez: Preview

Lorenzo Musetti

19 year-old Italian, Lorenzo Musetti started off 2021 in incredible fashion, making it far in most tournaments he played in, beating a top 10 player and taking 2 sets off Novak Djokovic at the French Open. However, since the French Open, the Italian has really lost his form and he has basically eliminated in the first or second round of every tournament he has participated in. Musetti’s work in the first half of the year has earned him the spot here at the NextGen ATP Finals 2021 in Milan.

Sebastian Baez has had a great year in his career, winning 5 Challenger Tour titles this year and showing everyone that he is a great clay-court player. Baez is probably the least known player in this entire NextGen ATP Finals field as he has only played 2 main ATP Tour matches this year and not really done much to make a name for himself outside of the Challenger Tour. Therefore, Sebastian will be very happy for this opportunity.

The 20 year-old Argentine has not yet passed any real tests of strength and rarely appears on the radar of the general public and it is quite possible that he will leave Milan ingloriously.

Lorenzo Musetti vs. Sebastian Baez: Match Prediction

Lorenzo Musetti

The 18 year-old Italian, Musetti has failed to maintain stability over a long period this season and would be aiming to leave a mark at his home tournament, NextGen ATP Finals and perform as productively as possible.

Although Lorenzo has not been at his best as of recent, there is a big difference in the level required to play in the Challenger Tour and the ATP Tour. Sebastian lacks a lot of experience on the ATP Tour and he might come in here being distracted by the big lights, the big crowd and the big stage. Lorenzo is somewhat used to that now, and the fact that the crowd is behind him will give him even more confidence and momentum coming into this match at the 2021 Next Gen ATP Finals.

The Argentine, Baez has nothing to lose here and if he plays like that, perhaps he can cause an upset against the crowd-favorite in Lorenzo Musetti.

Prediction: Musetti in five sets.
