Greece’s Stefanos Tsitsipas beat Novak Djokovic 3-6, 7-6, 6-4 and has advanced into the final of the Mubadala World Tennis Championship in Abu Dhabi.

The ATP Finals conqueror Tsitsipas lost the first set to former world number one Djokovic but played exceptionally well to win 3-6 7-6 (7-4) 6-4 and a place in the final.

Djokovic was 5-1 down in set two but dragged himself back into contention to draw level at 5-5, only for Tsitsipas to win the tie-break.

Number 6 ranked Tsitsipas will now meet number 1 Rafael Nadal in the final showdown.
