The 20-year-old Carrara, n°83 in the standings, is in his first qualification for the round of 16 in the Principality. Against the Canadian, he won for the second time against a Top-10. The first was a year ago in Acapulco against Diego Schwartzman, the opponent whom Lorenzo will meet on Thursday for his second match on the Court des Princes (live on Sky Sport One). The Argentinian, currently 16 in the ranking and 12 in the ranking, had been beaten in three sets on the hard Mexican by Musetti, who in this tournament had qualified for the semi-finals. This is the only precedent between the two players.
