Djere Upsets Lorenzo Musetti

The 28-year old went onto defeat the defending champion Musetti earlier today to advance to the semifinals. It wasn’t even close, as Djere won 5-7, 6-3.

Djere recorded six aces with no double faults, where Musetti had two aces to two double faults. He landed 95 percent of his first serves, and of those, was able to convert 75 percent of those into points.

From start to finish, he outplayed Musetti and just stunned the crowd.

Zhizhen’s Reaches First Tour Semifinal

The 26-year old hasn’t played a tournament since the Swiss Open at the end of June, and he had an early round exit there. He came out strong this past week in Germany, and as only dropped one set in his three matches so far.

In his quarterfinal match he defeated home crowd favorite Daniel Altmaier 6-4, 6-4, and took control of the match from the beginning to the end.

Djere vs Zhizhen Pick

There’s not a ton on either player here. Both have had a similar tournament, winning the matches they’ve been expected to win. The biggest shock was when Djere defeated Musetti last round. Djere should be coming into the match on a high, with his momentum going, but if he can’t control it, it could work against him.

But Djere is the favorite here to win outright, with -165 odds. This was expected coming off the quarterfinal match, so look for him to take the semifinal in straight sets.

Best Bet: Laslo Djere 2-0 (+125)
