Local teenager Lorenzo Musetti stunned Stan Wawrinka 6-0, 7-6 (2) in the first round of the Italian Open on Tuesday for a memorable first win on tour.

Out-hitting Wawrinka’s famed backhand with a one-handed version of his own, the 18-year-old qualifier moved the three-time Grand Slam champion from corner to corner and displayed an all-court game that belied his years.

Musetti became the first player born in 2002 to win on the ATP tour -- after fellow Italian Jannik Sinner achieved the feat last year for players born in 2001.

Wawrinka, who chose not to travel to the U.S. Open, appeared rusty and committed a series of errors early on.
