Lorenzo Musetti vs Marco Cecchinato Prediction

Musetti will go into the contest as the favourite because of his recent strong play. The 20-year-old will be upbeat at Umag after winning the Hamburg European Open. Musetti can produce strong angles as well as a lot of topspin on his groundstrokes, especially his backhand.
Cecchinato plays a strong defence, and his ability to roam around the court will be helpful in defending against Musetti’s groundstrokes. If the 29-year-old is to have a chance against his countryman, he must perform at the top of his game.
Given his previous results, Musetti ought to be able to defeat Cecchinato and advance to the Umag quarterfinals.

Prediction: Musetti to win in straight sets.
