It was just one of those days when everything goes the way you want it to - that’s what tennis pro Marco Cecchinato says now in hindsight. In a very surprising quarterfinal match at the 2018 Grand Slam tournament in Paris, the current world No. 72 25-year-old player beat Grand Slam victor Novak Djokovic with 6:3, 7:6 (7:4), 1:6, 7:6 (13:11). Cecchinato’s incredible performance had the Serbian tennis legend truly on his knees.
Before the Roland Garros, Cecchinato hadn’t won a single Grand Slam game. He was the least likely semi-finalist in the last 19 years of Grand Slam history. As the first Italian player in 40 years to make it to the quarterfinals of any Grand Slam tournament at all, you could really see the joy on his face after this highly emotional game. He’d just had the biggest success of his career, even despite losing to Dominic Thiem in the semifinals.
Cecchinato’s outfitter is Italian sports product manufacturer Lotto. Let’s find out more about this brand!
