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

Greek teenager Stefanos Tsitsipas upset Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic 6-3, 6-7 (5), 6-3 on Thursday afternoon in third-round play at the Rogers Cup.

The world number 27 is through to the first ATP World Tour Masters 1000 quarter-final of his career.

"I was waiting and I grabbed him like a bulldog and I stuck there", Tsitsipas said.

"Sorry to my fans in Toronto, but I have to pull out of the tournament since my left wrist needs some days of rest", Del Potro said in a tweet.

"I thought I served well in the moments when I really need it", the Serbian star said.

"Losing the second set, it was tough to deal with - I had my opportunities and didn't use them".

"I'll take it as a good experience and look forward to the next event".

In the third set, the teenager showed great composure to break for a 2-0 lead and then saved a break point for a 3-0 margin. An easy forehand. I missed it, but that's sport.

"I knew he had some issues in some particular shots in his game, I would say".

Nadal came from a mini-break down in the tiebreaker and secured victory on his second match point.

"I'm very pleased, I needed a match like this. Just happy to be in the quarterfinals".

He'll next face second-seeded defending champion Alexander Zverev of Germany, a 6-3, 6-2 victor over Russia's Daniil Medvedev.

"I'm happy to see Stan playing well again". "I get into a rhythm of playing matches one after another, and right now, I'm in that rhythm".

Grigor Dimitrov will face Anderson next after finding some of his best serving to beat Frances Tiafoe 7-6 (7/1) 3-6 7-6 (7/4).
