Musetti won 6-1, 1-6, 7-6 (8) over Daniel Evans
in the second round of Cagliari on Thursday.
Musetti won 74% of points on his first serve and saved four match points in this seesaw affair as he took out the No. 1 seed after 2 hours and 10 minutes. The 19-year-old Italian has shown early in his career that he's a difficult opponent, especially on clay courts. Musetti will face John Millman
or Laslo Djere
(0-1 H2H) in the quarterfinals.
