Cecchinato Vaults 45 Spots to a New High

A new career high


The mover of the week honors go to Marco Cecchinato. The Italian dismissed three seeded players, including a top ten player (David Goffin) and Novak Djokovic en route to his first major semifinals. Perhaps if not fatigue, the Italian may have also upset Dominic Thiem; however, the physical demands in combination with the emotional strain took a toll and he had nothing left to handle Thiem. Nevertheless, he walked away from Roland Garros with a new career high as well as with the knowledge that he can compete with the best.
