The Italian tennis pro has struggled for consistency but has churned out some impressive results now and then in 2022 so far.

Musetti opened his campaign in the 2022 Sofia Open with an intriguing match in the round of 16 against the 24-year-old Alexandar Lazarov. The Bulgarian won the first set to set the cat among the pigeons and came close to ending the match in the second set. However, Musetti dug deep and came out with a hard-fought win. The match ended 6-7 (5-7), 7-6 (10-8), and 6-2 in favor of Musetti. In the quarter-finals, Musetti had to fight hard to take the first set against German veteran Jan-Lennard Struff before easily finishing the match in the second set to win the match 7-6 (7-3), 6-1.
