No Joke: Tsitsipas upsets Djokovic to reach Rogers Cup quarter-finals
12 August, 2018, 18:59
Tsitsipas showed his nerve right from the start, as he surprised Djokovic (and everyone else watching) with a 5-2 game lead.
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.
Eighth-seeded John Isner, the American who won at Atlanta two weeks ago, beat France's Pierre-Hugues Herbert 7-6 (3), 6-2.
"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. "To be on the same side of the net was great, and I enjoyed it very much so".
"He played very well and deserved to win without a doubt", Djokovic said.
"I thought I served well in the moments when I really need it and I was looking for the first serve", said Djokovic.
Anderson topped qualifier Ilya Ivashka of Belarus 7-5, 6-3, and Dimitrov beat American Frances Tiafoe 7-6 (1), 3-6, 7-6 (4). "But I just played not that great, especially from the baseline". Maybe if I played Chung it could be a little bit just having the home crowd support.
Tsitsipas would not be brushed aside, though, and a huge shot down the line sealed an early break in the third, before fighting back in a sublime hold that prompted Djokovic to smash his racket.
