Canadian Open: Stefanos Tsitsipas stuns Djokovic

Adjust Comment Print

Eighth-seeded John Isner, the American who won at Atlanta two weeks ago, beat France's Pierre-Hugues Herbert 7-6 (3), 6-2.

Tsitsipas set up match point with a scorching crosscourt victor before completing the victory in two hours 17 minutes.

Tsitsipas, the 19-year-old rising star, took two hours and 17 minutes to beat Djokovic in his first-ever match against the ninth-seeded Serbian, a victor of four Canadian Open titles and a 13-time Grand Slam champion.

With this, he reached his maiden ATP World Tour Masters 1000 quarter-final. "But I just played not that great, especially from the baseline". But even the Andy one, I was a little surprised by that one just because he was entered on his protected ranking, and the Federation made a decision to help him out so he could pull out with his protected and get a wildcard entry so he could save it for another tournament. But Tsitsipas broke in his first return game of the third set and never looked back.

Tsitsipas would not be brushed aside, though, and a huge shot down the line sealed an early break in the third, before fighting back in a sublime hold that prompted Djokovic to smash his racket.

In other matches, fourth seed South Kevin Anderson beat Belarusian qualifier Ilya Ivashka 7-5, 6-3 and fifth seed Grigor Dimitrov advanced with a 7-6 (7-1), 3-6, 7-6 (7-4) win over American Frances Tiafoe. "And to come out and just play, I mean, that's all I wanted", said ATP World Tour Finals champion Dimitrov.

Heavy morning rain delayed the match by about an hour. I don't know about giving two away in your home country, regardless to a top player. But the teenager converted all four of his break-point opportunities while Zverev was five for 14. "People seemed to love it, loved the show and everything".

Tsitsipas, who lost in straight sets to the German in their first career meeting last week in Washington, will move into the top 20 when the new rankings are released next week.

Denis Shapovalov of Richmond Hill, Ont., - the only Canadian player remaining in the tournament - was to face Robin Haase of the Netherlands on Thursday evening. Haase instead played Mikhail Youzhny, beating the Russian 7-5, 6-2. Zverev beat Roger Federer in last year's singles final at Montreal.
