Clay Breakout Player Cecchinato Wins ATP Umag

“I think it’s the best moment of my life,” Cecchinato said. “This year I’ve won two titles, I made the semifinals at Roland Garros. I feel good, because tomorrow I’ll be No. 22 in the ATP Rankings. I’m very happy, because I’m playing very, very well…I’m working very hard because I think, especially my backhand and also the drop shot, is good for me. Every time I played a good forehand, I won the point with a drop shot, so it’s good for me.”
