Lorenzo Musetti will not be allowed to compete at the National Bank Open in Canada after leaving his Covid bubble.
Both Tennis Canada and the ATP men’s tour confirmed on Saturday that Musetti, the world number 60, would not be eligible to take part in the tournament.
The 19-year-old Italian was looking to build on his fourth-round finish at the French Open, his first appearance at a Grand Slam event. The National Bank Open would have been part of his US Open preparations.
