Rotterdam Open 2022: Lorenzo Musetti vs. Mikael Ymer Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2022 Rotterdam Open as Lorenzo Musetti takes on Mikael Ymer in the first round on Tuesday, February 8th, 2022.

Lorenzo Musetti is looking to recapture the form that propelled him to a career-high World No. 57 this past year. The Italian teenager faces the fast-rising Mikael Ymer in an intriguing first-round match at the Rotterdam Open on Monday. Who will advance?

The wheels have come off for Lorenzo Musetti. Unless there is a dramatic turnaround in his form, the Italian is staring at the prospect of cascading further down the ATP rankings. Musetti is 66th in current rankings, but a famine of just win this season does not bode well. He is defending a huge chunk of points in the upcoming months including semifinal points in Acapulco and a handful of clay court tournaments including Roland Garros where he made the fourth round. In order to keep his ranking afloat, you would think the 19-year-old needs a big week at the Rotterdam Open. 

Mikael Ymer, unlike Lorenzo Musetti, has recaptured his fluency and is now winning for fun. Victories over the likes of Gael Monfils and Richard Gasquet in Montpellier last week have put the limelight on the 23-year-old Swede. Mikael, and his older brother Elias, both headlined the semifinals of an ATP event this past week but were extremely unfortunate to lose simultaneously. In a way it was a blessing in disguise because Mikael Ymer has earned a direct entry into the main draw of the Rotterdam Open for the first time. Will he pick up his sixth win of the season against Lorenzo Musetti?

Lorenzo Musetti and Mikael Ymer have never faced before at any level. Monday’s match at the Rotterdam Open will be their first official meeting. Ymer comes into the match on the back of a semifinal run on Montpellier and should be well-equipped to continue in his rich vein of form indoors. Musetti loves playing indoors, but with very little rest time after oscillating continents, he could be overpowered by the 23-year-old Swede.
