Cecchinato his playing his best tennis everMarco Cecchinato, prior to this tournament, was n.72 of the ATP ranking and had never progressed beyond the first round of a Grand Slam event. He risked to be knocked out again in the first round when beating 2-6, 6-7, 7-5, 6-2, 10-8 Marius Copil. Then he eliminated two-straight top-10 seeds as Pablo Carreno Busta (2-6, 7-6, 6-3, 6-1) and David Goffin (7-5, 4-6, 6-0, 6-3). The Italian played his best tennis in the quarter finals as he upset former n.1 Novak Djokovic in four sets (6-3, 7-6, 1-6, 7-6).
Cecchinato's record is now 13-9 this season. He won his first title in Budapest earlier this year. The Italian has beaten Thiem on clay in their only previous meeting on the surface, although that was way back in a 2013 and they were both under 20 years old. He has gained a lot of confidence after seeing off Djokovic and obviously is now being buoyed up by an extremely high level of momentum.
