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

The world number 62 dominated the majority of the match, but missed a match point after leading 5-4 in the second set when an underarm serve backfired.

Musetti, however, regrouped to take the win in a tie-break, defeating an in-form Cerundolo, who had won the Bastad title last week.
