Djokovic survives huge scare against teenager Musetti in Paris


Novak Djokovic avoided a shock fourth-round exit at the French Open after fighting back from two sets down against teenager Lorenzo Musetti.
The world number one looked out of sorts before rallying, leading 6-7 (7-9) 6-7 (2-7) 6-1 6-0 4-0 when the Italian retired with an injury.
World number 76 Musetti, playing his first Grand Slam main draw, was given a standing ovation as he left the court, reports the BBC.
Djokovic will face Italian ninth seed Matteo Berrettini next.
It is the fifth time Djokovic has overturned a two-set deficit to win at a Grand Slam.
However, he was clearly frustrated by Musetti, who was able to match him shot-for-shot in the opening stages.
The teenager began to struggle with what appeared to be an abdominal injury and, after winning just four points in the fourth set, took a medical time-out.
