Italy in two faces in the men’s draw: Jannick overcomes Nakashima in four sets, in the next round he faces Ivashka winner on the other blue
No blue derby in the second round of the Us Open. On the men’s scoreboard, on the concrete in New York, alone Jannick Sinner manages to pass the third round while Lorenzo Musetti say hello to the tournament. The South Tyrolean overcomes the American in four sets Nakashima with a score of 3-6, 6-4, 6-1, 6-2 and in the next round he faces the Belarusian Ivashkaa surprise winner on the Carrarino (6-4, 3-6, 6-2, 6-3).
It could have been the Italian derby in the US Open round of 16 but on the American night only Jannick Sinner gets through the third round, while Lorenzo Musetti is eliminated by Ivashka and greets the tournament. Bravo the South Tyrolean to recover a set of disadvantage to the American Brandon Nakashima and close in comeback with a score of 3-6, 6-4, 6-1, 6-3. Solid proof for Sinner who, as always, demonstrates great mental stability and thus equals the result of last year on the hard courts in New York. Too bad for the 20-year-old from Carrara, seeded number 26 but unable to respect the favors of the prediction against the number 73 in the world: the Belarusian Ivashka also takes advantage of some physical problems of Musetti, who calls the intervention of the doctor at the start of the match , to win a surprise 6-4, 3-6, 6-2, 6-3.
