Greece’s tennis sensation Stefanos Tsitsipas’ remarkable winning streak at the Rogers Cup in Toronto continued with an amazing win over Kevin Anderson to reach Sunday’s final.
Tsitsipas took down Anderson – his fourth Top 10 opponent in the space of a week – 6-7 (4-7) 6-4 7-6 (9-7).
The young Greek athlete produced another stunning victory in two hours and 47 minutes of pure drama to beat the Wimbledon finalist.
Tsitsipas who turns 20 today said, “I don’t know what to believe. Everything’s happening so fast, I cannot keep up with it,” at his on-court interview right after the match. “Really I cannot believe what just happened there. All the emotions, so emotional—to have a flashback of last year, I remember playing in the Challenger in Slovenia, but instead of playing for 20 points it’s now 600 to 1000, even I cannot believe it.”
Tsitsipas who is turning 20 on Sunday will be awaiting in the final either World No. 1 Rafael Nadal or another unseeded player, No. 38-ranked Karen Khachanov, who will play at night.
