Mussetti chews bitterness: ‘I did not deserve such a defeat’
5 hours ago
In the first group there is little to say. In fact, very little. Djokovic wins it with a frightening flair, bending Musetti’s weak resistance in just over 20 minutes (24, to be exact). Break in the second half, break in the fourth and then the comfortable closing 6-0 With the third in a row. A terrible start to Lorenzo, who in addition to contract tennis (especially serving, but also backhand and forehand does not walk) also complains of some breathing problems, as if he can not break his breath. Counting points is almost a joke: 25 to 8 for the Serbian.
The second part is a little better. The first two games are a pivot, then Djokovic charges with a blank pass and Musetti exploits it like a bird of prey. Service and rest 2-1. The match turns in a second, so much so that Mussetti finds himself ahead after 38 minutes without winning a match. However, the credit, if we may call it that, must be shared with the Serb, who misses almost everything and leaves room for the Italians. Finally, there seems to be a game, we think, but just as quickly as he finds himself in the lead, Mussetti is back in for a fall. Kontrobrik from Knoll, convenient service then break againfifth in the match, which directs the match definitively. The final reads 6-3 and the eighth semi-final in the Belgrade cannibal Bercy.

Striker also Tsitsipas, if he will deal with Nole
It took 78 minutes, five minutes ahead of Djokovic, and conceded 6 matches, three times more than the former world number one, but the result was the same. Stefanos Tsitsipas broke the pass for the semi-finals of the last Masters 1000 this year by defeating American Tommy Ball 6-2, 6-4. A match similar to the Serbian’s match for the original Athens: always in management, a bit of compulsion and surgery in the break area, both in attack and defense (10/10, 7 saves and 3 wins). Tomorrow evening, in the main event at the Accor Arena, he will face the 6-times champion for the eleventh time: the balance is 8-2 for the Serbian, but Stefanos wants to fight until the last match.
