Greek teenager Stefanos Tsitsipas has sent Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic packing in the third round of the Rogers Cup in Canada with a stunning 6-3 6-7 (7-5) 6-3 win on Thursday. "So I was waiting and I grabbed him like a bulldog and stuck there and executed, I executed my plan", Tsitsipas said.
Tsitsipas set up match point with a scorching cross-court victor before completing the victory in 2 hours, 17 minutes.
