Lorenzo Musetti

The talented Italian youngster had a great season last year as he won his first two ATP titles. They came in the German Open and the Tennis Napoli Cup.

He played well in the United Cup but couldn’t make a mark in the Australian Open. Musetti entered as the 17th seed and his campaign ended in the first round itself as he lost to South Africa’s Lloyd Harris in five sets. 17 aces and relentless pressure from Harris rattled Musetti. He will be looking to get his season back on track at the Argentina Open.

Pedro Cachin

The Argentine star came into the tournament on the back of a 3-match losing streak in 2023. Cachin lost to Constant Lestienne in the round of 32 of the ASB Classic. In the Australian Open, Cachin went down to Pablo Carreno Busta while in the Cordoba Open, he faced defeat against Hugo Dellien.

In the round of 32 of the Argentina Open, Cachin faced Brazilian veteran, Thiago Monteiro. Cachin won the match in two competitive sets 7-6 (7-2), 6-4. The 27-year-old was exemplary with his serves and had a win percentage of 85 on the first serve.

Head-to-Head and Prediction

The head-to-head scoreline currently stands at 0-0 as the two players have never faced each other as yet.

Prediction: Lorenzo Musetti to win in straight sets.
