Stefanos Tsitsipas stuns Alexander Zverev to keep dream run alive in Toronto
Greek tyro Stefanos Tsitsipas' dream run at the Rogers Cup continued on Friday as the teenager toppled defending champion Alexander Zverev 3-6 7-6(11) 6-4 to reach the semi-finals in Toronto.
The win over world number three Zverev looked unlikely when the 19-year-old dropped the first set and fell behind 2-5 in the second.
But Tsitsipas managed to save two match points and shifted the momentum after edging Zverev in a marathon second-set tiebreak.
Extending the match paid off for Tsitsipas as Zverev made a number of uncharacteristic errors in a tight third set and he handed the world number 27 victory with a double fault on match point.
Fourth seed Anderson, runner-up at Wimbledon last month, was never broken and won 81 percent of his first serves.
