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.

Also, Karen Khachanov of Russian Federation beat 12th-seeded Pablo Carreno Busta of Spain 6-4, 7-6 (3); Ilya Ivashka of Belarus topped American Ryan Harrison 7-6 (5), 6-4; and American Frances Tiafoe edged Canada's Milos Raonic 7-6 (4), 4-6, 6-1.

"I was really not focusing on winning or losing, just on starting to play good tennis and start building the right habits".

The match was played under threatening grey skies which eventually dumped heavy rain on the courts just after Djokovic wrapped up his win.

"This was the best match of my career", Tsitsipas said.

The aggressive play led to defensive shots from his opponent and Tsitsipas often converted when he had chance.

With his long dark locks flowing behind a bright pink headband, Tsitsipas didn't seemed fazed.

"I was serving well so that break was everything", Tsitsipas said.

Djokovic, a 13-time Grand Slam champion, couldn't claw back and eventually seemed resigned to the result, even smiling a few times in the final game.

Nadal came from a mini-break down in the tiebreaker and secured victory on his second match point. "I didn't crack under pressure".

A win for Djokovic would set up a potential quarter-final clash with German second seed Alexander Zverev, who advanced to the third round after a 6-4 6-4 win over Bradley Klahn.

The scheduled afternoon start was a quick turnaround for Shapovalov, who downed France's Jeremy Chardy in straight sets in the first round Tuesday evening in front of a packed and supportive crowd at centre court that included Edmonton Oilers captain Connor McDavid and former Ottawa Senators star Jason Spezza. The six-foot-four right-hander has reached the quarterfinals at seven Tour events and was a finalist at the Barcelona Open last April. He rose to prominence a year ago with a stellar run at the Rogers Cup in Montreal that ended with a semifinal loss to eventual champion Alex Zverev.

Play continues through Sunday.
