The amazing Tsitsipas strikes again; to face Nadal in Toronto final

Stefanos Tsitsipas won Kevin Anderson 6-7(4), 6-4, 7-6(7) in the semifinals of the Toronto ATP Masters and will face Rafael Nadal in the final that will be held on Sunday.

Tsitsipas that turned 20 today (Sunday), became the youngest player to beat four Top 10 opponents at a single tournament since the ATP World Tour was established in 1990.

Tsitsipas also defeated World No. 8 Dominic Thiem in the second round, 69-time tour-level champion Novak Djokovic in the third round and defending titlist Alexander Zverev in the quarter-finals, before ousting the World No. 6 Anderson.

The Athens native is the first unseeded Rogers Cup finalist since Nicolas Kiefer finished runner-up in Toronto in 2008. Tsitsipas, who was No. 168 in the ATP Rankings this week a year ago, will climb to at least No. 15 on Monday. If he wins the tournament, he will climb to No. 12.
