Today, Sunday 4 June, the round of 16 of Roland Garros starts. Two Italians were on the field, after the elimination of Fabio Fognini at the hands of the Austrian Sebastian Ofner (7-5, 3-6, 5-7, 6-1, 4-6): «After the game with Kubler I the bib ironed. I decided to play because I will not get another chance like this. Last or penultimate Roland Garros, without a doubt,” said the blue after the defeat. So Lorenzo Musetti and Lorenzo Sonego play. The latter challenges the Russian Karen Khachanov (round 11), after defeating another Russian, Andrey Rublev (5-7, 0-6, 6-3, 7-6, 6-3).

Musetti enters the field against the Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz, in a really complicated and winding challenge (about 2:15pm). Lorenzo defeated, in just over two hours, British Cameron Norrie: 6-1, 6-2, 6-4. For him it is a return to the round of 16 in Paris after 2021, when he surrendered to Novak Djokovic after winning the first two sets in a tiebreak, but this time he does it without losing a set in three games. Of course, the perfect match with Alcaraz will be necessary.
