"I don't think I can afford his salary" - Musetti on hiring Federer as coach

Lorenzo Musetti recently won his maiden trophy at the ATP 500 event in Hamburg and the Italian is only one of many bright stars coming out of the country.

Italy has a bright future in tennis as the country has several high-profile talents that are slowly carving their way to the top of tennis. Lorenzo Musetti, Jannik Sinner, and Matteo Berrettini are all established players and even more young talents are coming up.

In a recent talk Musetti touched upon many topics including his own path:

"In life everyone has his own themes and his own path. Learning from mistakes and forging himself as a man first and then as a tennis player. Last year was decisive in this regard. It was a difficult period, a set of things that crossed between work and private life, which caused a season with many ups and downs."

He was also asked about the results of fellow colleagues from Italy and he was glad that they are doing well:

"I am always happy when they win and I have to thank them for having achieved success before me, allowing me to work quietly in a shadow. Our example is doing well in all Italian tennis: Zeppieri and Agamenone in the semifinals in Umago, Cobolli, Passaro and Nardi. Our movement is experiencing a very positive and happy moment."

Musetti also touched upon Roger Federer explaining that he would love the idea of the Swiss ace coaching him however he doesn't think he could afford it:

"Well, I don't think I can afford his salary!"
