"... If you were Italy's Marco Cecchinato, who beat Novak Djokovic to reach the Roland Garros semi-finals on Tuesday, wouldn't you also be believing anything is possible?

Defeat Dominic Thiem, a three-time Roland Garros semi-finalist, on Friday? “Why no?” Cecchinato said.

Who cares that the last time Cecchinato beat Thiem was five years ago, during a Futures final, and on hard courts, a much different setting than where they'll play their on Friday, on Court Philippe-Chatrier, at Roland Garros, during a Grand Slam semi-final.
But at least Cecchinato has some past experience to rely on against Thiem, who swept Alexander Zverev 6-4, 6-2, 6-1 earlier Tuesday to reach his third Grand Slam semi-final. Before Roland Garros, Cecchinato had never won a Grand Slam match, losing at the 2015 US Open (l. Mardy Fish), 2016 Australian Open (l. Nicolas Mahut), 2016 Roland Garros (l. Nick Kyrgios), and 2017 Wimbledon (l. Nishikori). The Italian fell in the final round of Roland Garros qualifying last year.

So he beat him when they were younger? Let's do it for real now. Smile Smile

Before RG Cecchinato's W/L record on the year was 8-9.
Only 12-32 for his whole career on the ATP Tour.
Never won a singles match in a major until last week.
Into the RG semi's(beating 3 Top 20 players).

Just WOW!!!!!

Sloane, holding true to her formula! Win big titles, do little to nothing for a while after,
all pressure is off, and BOOM knocking on the door of another big title!

Pleased for Madison and am pulling for her in the semi match. Hopefully no repeat
of the USO, that was just sad.
