Greek teenager Stefanos Tsitsipas claimed the biggest scalp of his young career following his surprising three-set victory over former World number one Novak Djokovic in their last 16 clash at the Rogers Cup in Toronto.

Tsitsipas, who turns 20 on Sunday, produced a stunning 6-3 6-7 (5-7) 6-3 win over Djokovic to book a quarterfinal spot and also end the Serbian’s hopes of a fifth Rogers Cup title.

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

Grigor Dimitrov and Kevin Anderson are also through to the last eight after respective wins over United States’ Frances Tiafoe and Ilya Ivashka of Belarus.

Bulgarian star Dimitrov defeated Tiafoe 7-6 (7-1) 3-6 7-6 (7-4) in their third round duel, while South Africa’s Anderson, beaten by Djokovic in this year’s Wimbledon final, saw off Ivashka 7-5, 6-3.
