Marco Cecchinato Facts

  1. Marco had started playing tennis from the age of 7 and was trained by his uncle who was a tennis coach.
  2. In July 2016, he had been suspended for 18 months and was fined €40k by the Italian tennis federation on charges of match-fixing and match betting. The ban was, however, overturned after the prosecutors had taken too long to complete the initial trial phase.
  3. When he won the 2018 Hungarian Open, his first title on the ATP World Tour, he had become just the 9th player ever to win an ATP tournament as a lucky loser.
  4. When he had reached the semi-final of the singles event at the 2018 French Open, he was ranked number 72 in the official ATP singles rankings. He had, thus, become the lowest-ranked semi-finalist at the tournament since number 100 ranked Andrei Medvedev in 1999. He had also become the first Italian Grand Slam semi-finalist since Corrado Barazzutti had achieved the feat at the 1978 French Open.
  5. A clay-court specialist, his semi-final appearance at the 2019 Qatar Open was his career-best performance at a non-clay ATP tournament.
  6. When he had won the Argentina Open in February 2019, he had not dropped even a single set in the entire tournament.
