"Just thinking in a positive way and just thinking that I have to hold".
The Serb has a deal of work to do to get back to the stratospheric levels he reached before his right elbow gave up on him so spectacularly past year. If he wins the game, OK.

Cecchinato's catalogue of drop shots which helped account for Novak Djokovic kept Thiem on his toes throughout, but once the pivotal tie-break went the seventh seed's way Cecchinato's unlikely run was all but over.
Thiem weathered three set points for Cecchinato, at 7-6, 9-8 and 10-9. But once Thiem got to 10-10 - ironically with a superb drop volley of his own - the clay-court prince was back.
