No Joke: Tsitsipas upsets Djokovic to reach Rogers Cup quarter-finals

Nadal routs Paire to reach third round in Toronto

Four-time champion Novak Djokovic and top-seeded Rafael Nadal advanced to the third round of the rainy Rogers Cup on Wednesday.

Tsitsipas, the 19-year-old rising star, took two hours and 17 minutes to beat Djokovic in his first-ever match against the ninth-seeded Serbian, a victor of four Canadian Open titles and a 13-time Grand Slam champion.

World No 1 Nadal battled past Wawrinka 7-5 7-6 (7-4) to reach the quarter-finals and stay on course for his fourth Canadian trophy at the Masters 1000 event.

Tsitsipas will face second-seeded Alexander Zverev of Germany, the defending champion coming off a tournament victory last week in Washington that included a semifinal win over Tsitsipas.

He rounded off his afternoon with back-to-back winners to send Djokovic, the victor of 30 Masters titles, out on a first match point.

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

This time a year ago, Greek teenager Stefanos Tsitsipas had yet to record a victory on the ATP World Tour.

"But I have to accept it, deal with it, and move on", he said of his 6-3, 6-7 (5/7), 6-3 defeat to Tsitsipas.

But Djokovic quickly built a lead in the tie-break and, although Tsitsipas threatened a fightback with further measured returns, the gap proved too great to bridge, taking the match to a decider with his third set point.

"I mean, Denis is already established top 50 player, and he's making his way up", he added.

"It's a dream of any kid out there in this world, any kid that's playing tennis, to beat these kinds of players, so I can call it the best moment of my life", a shocked Tsitsipas said on Thursday.

Milos Raonic of Thornhill, Ont., was scheduled to follow Djokovic's win on centre court but that match was also delayed.

Also advancing to the third round were Wimbledon runner-up Kevin Anderson, fifth seed Grigor Dimitrov, sixth seed Marin Cilic, eighth seed John Isner, Dutchman Robin Haase and Russian Karen Khachanov, who upset Spanish 12th seed Pablo Carreno Busto 6-4 7-6 (3). There was a combined two doubles titles between them as Anderson and Djokovic each had won once before.

Play continues through Sunday at the US$5.94-million tournament.

"I was really not focusing on winning or losing, just on starting to play good tennis and start building the right habits".
