Lorenzo Musetti (born 3 March 2002) is an Italian professional tennis player. He has a career-high singles ATP ranking of World No. 58 achieved on 21 June 2021 and a doubles ranking of World No. 305 achieved on 14 June 2021. Musetti trains at La Spezia TC and Tirrenia.

Professional career

Juniors

He has achieved a career-high ITF juniors ranking of 1 in the world on 10 June 2019. On 26 January 2019 Musetti defeated Emilio Nava to win the 2019 Australian Open boys' singles title.

2020: ATP debut

After receiving a wildcard and passing the qualifying, he made his ATP Tour main draw debut at the 2020 Dubai Tennis Championships, where he lost in the first round against Andrey Rublev.

His second main draw tour-level match and first on a Masters 1000 level in his career came after qualifying at the 2020 Rome Masters, where he defeated three-time Grand Slam champion Stan Wawrinka in straight sets in the first round, becoming the first player born in 2002 to win an ATP match, and former World No. 4 Kei Nishikori in the second round. In October he received a wildcard for the Forte Village Sardegna Open, where he reached his first ATP semifinal, retiring due to an injury against eventual champion Laslo Đere after trailing 1–4 in the third set.

2021: Top 100, ATP 500 semifinal, Grand Slam debut and fourth round

Musetti was the youngest player to break into the top 100 for the first time in his career by reaching the semifinals of the 500 series Mexican Open in Acapulco after going through qualifying. It was here he had his first top 10 win against world no. 9 Diego Schwartzman in three sets. He also beat Frances Tiafoe and 5th-seed Grigor Dimitrov to break into the top 100 and reach his second ATP semifinal, and first at a 500 level, where he was defeated in straight sets by Stefanos Tsitsipas. The 19-year-old was the third-youngest semifinalist in the tournament's history. Only Xavier Malisse (1998) and Rafael Nadal (2005) reached the final four in Acapulco at a younger age. Musetti reached his third semifinal at the 2021 ATP Lyon Open where he was again defeated by Tsitsipas.

He capped off the clay season by reaching the fourth round at the French Open, on his Grand Slam championship debut (only the sixth player since 2000 to do so), beating 13th seed David Goffin, Yoshihito Nishioka and Marco Cecchinato in his first five-set match. He had a 2-0 lead in sets against top seed Novak Djokovic in the fourth round, but retired in the 5th set trailing 0-4. As a result of this successful run, he climbed to World No. 58 in June 2021.
