  • ATP Toronto Wawrinka edges Kyrgios. Nishikori bows out

Zverev, the German star coming off a victory last week in Washington, double-faulted on match point to send Tsitsipas to his first ATP World Tour Masters 1000 semifinal.

"Losing in this kind of tournament, it's not something I don't care about", Djokovic said. "I knew I was playing pretty good today".

With AP Photos.Greek teen Stefanos Tsitsipas upset Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic 6-3, 6-7 (5), 6-3 in the Rogers Cup.

"So I was waiting and, like, I grabbed him like a bulldog and stuck there and executed - yeah, I executed my plan".

In the third set, the teenager showed great composure to break for a 2-0 lead and then saved a break point for a 3-0 margin. "I just patiently waited for the moment and it happened".

Tsitsipas had beaten seventh seed Dominic Thiem to set up a meeting with Djokovic, the ninth seed, but said his triumph over the former world number one was the best of his career. "Of course, a very positive victory for me against a very tough opponent", Nadal said. "It's true that with my serve in the second set I had some troubles but my return was working well.it was more about the mistakes from the baseline in my opinion". "Just happy to be in the quarterfinals".


Marin Cilic awaits in the quarter-finals, following his speedy defeat of Argentina's Diego Schwartzman.

Rafael Nadal was made to wait before his second-round Rogers Cup match due to several rain delays but did his part to put the schedule back on track with a speedy 6-2 6-3 win over Frenchman Benoit Paire on Wednesday. I don't think he played well.

Tsitsipas will next face second seed Alexander Zverev, who breezed past Daniil Medvedev 6-3 6-2. "I get into a rhythm of playing matches one after another, and right now, I'm in that rhythm". Nadal will face Stan Wawrinka of Switzerland, a 1-6, 7-6 (2), 7-6 (10) victor over Marton Fucsovics of Hungary.

Completing the quarter-final line-up is the match between Russia's Karen Khachanov and Robin Haase of the Netherlands.

The Bulgarian found himself a break down in the decider against Frances Tiafoe, but found some of his best serving to escape trouble and win 7-6 (7/1) 3-6 7-6 (7/4).
