Lorenzo Musetti’s parents, Francesco and Sabrina Musetti, raised their only child in Carrara, Italy. Francesco and Sabrina instilled a love for tennis in Lorenzo from a young age.
The 21-year-old recently faced a loss at the German Open in the quarter-finals. The Italian player was handed defeat by the Serbian player Laslo Djere.
Djere faced Alexander Zverev in the finals but lost in straight sets handing the German his 20th ATP title. Despite not winning a single tennis tournament in 2023, Lorenzo has managed to break into the top 20 world rankings.
