  • Nadal routs Paire to reach third round in Toronto

"I'm pretty comfortable with it - it's good to have shot clock in the tournaments prior to the US Open".

Greek teenager Stefanos Tsitsipas secured the biggest win of his career when he sent Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic packing in the third round of the Rogers Cup with a stunning 6-3 6-7 (5) 6-3 win on Thursday. "With each game, with each point that I play, I feel more confident, more stable on the court, and everything falls into its place".

Djokovic, a four-time Rogers Cup champion, faded in the decisive set against the flashy 19-year-old, who played with poise and power on a warm, breezy afternoon at Aviva Centre on the York University campus.

Tsitsipas set up match point with a scorching cross-court victor before completing the victory in 2 hours, 17 minutes.

His trademark retrieving skills were on display throughout the match, but Tsitsipas used strong groundstrokes to push the pace and force Djokovic to fully stretch on several rallies. "I knew I was playing pretty good today".

He held serve to open the set and wrong-footed Djokovic after the veteran served at deuce, setting up an overhead smash for the advantage before a brilliant backhand victor secured a 2-0 lead.

"I thought Tsitsipas played very well and he deserved to win without a doubt", Djokovic said.

"I'm happy to see Stan playing well again". "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".

Tsitsipas will next face second seed Alexander Zverev, who breezed past Daniil Medvedev 6-3 6-2. "So just all in all, it wasn't that great of a match".

Tsitsipas, who turns 20 on Sunday, relied on his serve and forehand combination to get by Djokovic, who was competing in his first tournament since collecting his 13th grand slam title at the All England Club last month. "And to come out and just play, I mean, that's all I wanted", said ATP World Tour Finals champion Dimitrov.

Dimitrov beat Frances Tiafoe of the United States 7-6 (7-1), 3-6, 7-6 (7-4).

Sixth seed Marin Cilic awaits in the quarter-finals following his speedy defeat of Argentina's Diego Schwartzman 6-3 6-2.

Canadian teen Denis Shapovalov went down to Robin Haase, losing 7-5, 6-2, ending local interest.
