MATCH PREVIEW

Musetti Out to Cause a Shock

 

World number 76 Lorenzo Musetti has a good chance of causing a first round upset. He takes on the 13th seeded David Goffin at Roland Garros and he's the favourite with the bookies. The winner of this match faces either Yoshihito Nishioka or home favourite Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the second round.

Musetti is only 19 years old and has risen 52 places in the world rankings this year. It's been a good year for the Italian and in terms of ranking points earned this year he's 29th. One of his main targets this year will be the NextGen tournament in Milan. He's well on his way to playing in that being currently third in the rankings behind Jannik Sinner and Felix-Auger Aliassime. 

2021 got off to a good start for Musetti with a run to the finals of  Challenger tournament in Turkey and Italy. He failed to make it to the main draw of the Australian Open losing his first match. This is his first time in the main draw of a Grand Slam and he'll be out to make the most of it. 

Musetti reached the semi-finals of the ATP 500 event held in Acapulco. He beat Diego Schwartzmann and Grigor Dimitrov before being beaten by Stefanos Tsitsipas in the last four. The Italian will be well prepared for the French Open as he's played six tournaments on clay this year.

He made it to the last eight in Cagliari, with a win over in-form Daniel Evans. Barcelona saw him take Aliassime to three sets and in Rome, he knocked out Hubert Hurkacz. Lyon saw him reach the last four with a win over Aliassime before another loss to Tsitsipas. This time though the Greek world number five had to come from a set down to get the win. 

Goffin Struggling for Consistency

 

David Goffin has a best Roland Garros performance of a last eight appearance five years ago. 2020 saw him seeded 11th but he lost in straght sets to Jannik Sinner. He's 20th in the singles race this year but owes much of that to a tournament win in Montpellier in February. The Belgian beat Roberto Bautista Agut in the final. That was his first ATP Tour title in four years but he hasn't built on that victory.

His next four tournaments saw him win just two matches. The start of the clay court season saw Goffin get to the last eight in Monte Carlo, with a win over Alexander Zverev. Only two matches have been won in the three tournaments that have followed and his 2021 record is 14-11 coming into this tournament. 

This is the first match played between these two players. It promises to be a fascinating one with Musetti feeling at home on this surface. Goffin has been inconsistent for most of the year and lost to a player outside the top 100 in the Australian Open. A bet on Musetti could pay dividends here, over three sets in the match should be a winner too.
