Il Mago Musetti is so bloody talented and elegant.

It's a shame he's such a down-on-himself headcase and he lacks the top tier weaponry. He is an absolute joy to watch, but has been cursed with being Gen Z through-and-through.

So Wawrinka could not prevail after all. Excellent effort, nonetheless. Well done to TK to get through. Khachanov and Norrie progress in straight sets.
Alcaraz took the scenic route, dropping the 2nd set, but rallying to win 1 and 2 in the 3rd & 4th. Shapavalov won in similar terms, also losing the 2nd set.

Watching live: Rublev looks in control against Moutet, up a set and 5-1. Breezy conditions, these, but he is serving well. He takes the 2nd set 6-2. Unless Motet wakes up, I see no ripples ahead, and it should be a straight setter.
Davidovich-Fokina seemed in a comfortable groove - up 2 sets, but is facing more of an effort from Van Assche. The French crowd doing its thing, and LV-A up 5-3 in the 3rd set, each error by his opponent / win by him cheered to the rafters. Despite this, AD-F evens up to go 5-5. Could he win it in 3?
Griegspoor / Hurkacz is a battle - TG up 2 sets to 1, having won the 3rd set tiebreak 15/13. These margins must make it especially disappointing for the loser, and a huge relief for the winner. If they keep this close, could HH turn the tables?
Bautusta - Agut / Varrillas in the 5th set, and JV up a break. Another battle in progress.
Musetti / Shevchenko in progress & LM has an early breakin the 1st set. I'm focussing on this match.

And Djokovic / Fucsovic yet to come. Wonderful stuff.

On the slow clay, in a huge court, and with these new instantly-decomposing spongeballs they're using, Musetti is one tough customer. Too bad for the horrible draw, in any other section he could have really made a deep run...

I couldn‘t watch. I expected him to win but not even close to this easily. How was the match? Was Shevchenko playing badly?

Musetti was amazing in the first set and Shevchenko had no answers. He did start to play better in the second and third, but Lorenzo just did really well at outfighting him and holding him at arms length the whole time.

Yeah the last times I‘ve watched him, he looked really good, so I didn‘t think Musetti could beat him that easily

Monfils withdraw?
Well, Mickey Runey certainly cannot complain about bad luck.

Eubanks - W/O - Vavassori or Olivieri for his first three rounds, and Medvedev immediately knocked out of his half...
