Greek tennis player Stefanos Tsitsipas won Alexander Zverev 3-6 7-6 6-4 and reached the semi-finals of the Toronto Masters. Tsitsipas who will become 20 on Sunday defeated his German opponent and will now face South African Kevin Anderson (No6) in the semifinal on Saturday.

The 27th-ranked Greek defeated his third straight top 10 opponent at the tournament after knocking out Dominic Thiem in the second round and Novak Djokovic in the third.
Tsitsipas is the youngest player to post three top 10 wins at a single tournament since a 19-year-old Rafael Nadal at Monte Carlo in 2006.
