Cecchinato amazed after stunning Djokovic 164 lượt xem

PARIS, June 6 — World number 72 Marco Cecchinato said he had “amazed” w88 himself by becoming the first Italian man in 40 years to reach a Grand Slam semi-final with a breathtaking 6-3, 7-6 (7/4), 1-6, 7-6 (13/11) French Open victory over 12-time major winner Novak Djokovic yesterday. Cecchinato, who had never won a Grand Slam match before Roland Garros, faces Austrian seventh seed Dominic Thiem for a place in Sunday’s final.

In an epic fourth set tiebreaker, Djokovic saved three match points but wasted three set points as Cecchinato became the lowest-ranked man in the semi-finals in Paris since 100th-ranked Andrei Medvedev in 1999. In an extraordinary post-match press conference, Djokovic said he may even skip Wimbledon where he has been champion three times.

“I don’t know if I am going to play on grass,” said the live casino malaysia downcast Serb. Cecchinato said he was stunned by his triumph, coming just two years after his career was almost derailed when he became embroiled in match-fixing allegations. “Maybe I’m sleeping. It’s amazing, it’s unbelievable for me. I’m very happy because it’s unbelievable to beat Novak Djokovic in a quarter-final at Roland Garros.

It’s amazing,” said the 25-year-old who is the first Italian to get this far at a Slam since Corrado Barazzutti at Roland Garros in 1978. “I was two breaks down on the tie-breaker and I had two, three match points and then on the fourth one I was very tired.” In a roller-coaster of a quarter-final, both men were warned for coaching, 2016 champion Djokovic required two medical timeouts while the Italian was docked m88 a point for unsportsmanlike behaviour. Djokovic had also squandered three set points in the second set and failed to serve out the fourth in the ninth game after being 5-2 in front. Djokovic saluted Cecchinato but admitted the match had been a struggle.

“I had a little injury at the beginning. After then I warmed up and it was better, but yeah, just a pity that I couldn’t capitalise on some break points at 4-1 in the fourth set.” Djokovic, who was playing on a 20th seeding — his lowest in over a decade after indifferent form and struggles with m88 mobile an elbow injury — has now not made the semi-final of a major since he finished runner-up at the 2016 US Open. He had previously only been beaten by a player ranked lower than Cecchinato at the Slams on two occasions — Marat Safin at Wimbledon in 2008 when the Russian was at 78 and 117th-ranked Denis Istomin at last year’s Australian Open.
