ATP ROLAND GARROS
Match start: 12:30 (GMT+1)
Marco Cecchinato (72)
The Italian tennis player has created the real sensation in a quarterfinal. Having played brilliantly, he has beaten out Novak Djokovic from the tournament (6:3; 7:6; 1:6; 7:6).
Before the former first racket of the world and the winner of the RG also Carreño Busta and Goffin were beaten by Marco. Cecchinato has also beaten them in four sets with high-quality serves and quite good forehands. However, 9 more rivals whom Cecchinato has beaten for the last 6 weeks can confirm his abilities. And he has only 3 defeats.
34 aces for 5 meetings were made by Macro Cecchinato at Roland Garros courts. It isn’t difficult to count that in a match with “joker” he has followed the rate, having made 6 massive kick serves. The accuracy of the first ball was 75% and the number of winners 54 that on 13 units exceeded the number of unforced errors.
Dominic Thiem (8)
The Austrian hasn’t managed to finish 60% of his matches at this tournament in three sets either. But he has been gradually improving his own form that has developed into an absolute and unconditional victory over Alexander Zverev (6:4; 6:2; 6:1).
The truth is that the beginning of the match was not the strongest one . By the sixth game he has made 3 double mistakes and generally speaking was serving poorly. As a result the same amount of double errors while serving had Dominic after the match and he has confidently reached the semi-final.
Thiem has steadily beaten his previous rivals: Nishikori, Berrettini and Tsitsipas in four sets. He was losing the second set to the Italian and the Greek, giving the chance to his rivals to even the score on sets. Against Japanese Dominic had managed to stay strong so that the regression has happened during the third set and he has lost only 2 games by the beginning of this 3rd set.
Cecchinato vs Thiem matches
In 2013 during the final match in Modena very young Thiem has lost to Cecchinato (3:6; 4:6). It was the clay court tournament. Five months later on hard court in Doha the Austrian has taken revenge (1:6; 6:3; 6:2).
Cecchinato to win 6.00
Thiem to win 1.10
We believe that Dominic won’t be able to play again the whole match on one breath. To tell the truth his rival won’t allow him to do this. But unlike Djokovic, the Austrian will manage to stay calm and to pressure the Italian. The lack of such wearisome tournaments’ experience consisting of 5 sets game-format will be crucial. Nevertheless Thiem seems to be much more experienced from this point of view.
