Novak Djokovic was beaten 6-3, 6-7 (5), and 6-3.

Stefanos Tsitsipas has caused quite a surprise by showing the exit to Novak Djokovic at the Rogers Cup in Toronto on Thursday.

The Greek 19-year-old, 27th in the ATP, has beaten the four-time champion of the tournament 6-3, 6-7 (5), and 6-3.

There were 11 aces on each side but Tsitsipas is limited to two double faults compared to four for the Serbian, ranked 10th in the world.

The two breaks of the match have been the case in the Greek. Tsitsipas has thus reached the quarter-finals of a tournament of series Masters for the first time in his career.

Grigor Dimitrov has also advanced to the table, coming to the end of the American Frances Tiafoe 7-6 (1), 3-6, 7-6 (4).

The Bulgarian, fifth head of series, took two hours and 26 minutes to seal the end of the meeting. Tiafoe, 20 years, eliminated the Canadian Milos Raonic in the previous round.

In the late afternoon, the defending champion of the Rogers Cup, Alexander Zverev, crossed the iron with the Russian Daniil Medvedev.

The Ontario Denis Shapovalov has an appointment in the evening with Robin Haase, of the netherlands.

The favorite spaniard, Rafael Nadal, will then face Stanislas Wawrinka, of Switzerland.
