Young Italian player Lorenzo Musetti reached his first ATP Tour final on Saturday with a straight set victory over Francisco Cerundolo at the Hamburg clay event. The 20-year-old won 6-3, 7-6 (7/3) to reach the final against world number six Carlos Alcaraz. “It means a lot to me,” Musetti said. “It was a surprise for me because I didn’t play my best tennis last week (in Bastad), so I didn’t expect to be in the final here.”

The world number 62 dominated for most of the match but missed a point when leading 5-4 in the second set when an underarm serve went into an own goal.

Musetti rallied to win the draw, beating the in-form Cerundolo, who won the Bastad championship last week.
