Tsitsipas, who had split two meetings with Djokovic prior, stunned the Serb yet again with a 3-6, 7-5, 6-3 victory over the 4-time time tournament champion.

"I don't think Roger Federer's game suits anybody to be honest".

"I would like to be competitive in the big events against the best players".

"Not like there were none beforehand, but now they are playing with the big boys and really able to challenge us, beat us", he said.

And at the Shanghai Masters this week, Murray squandered two chances to serve out the match against Fabio Fognini and lost in a controversial second-round clash.

The world No. 3 was beaten 6-3, 6-7 (7-9), 6-3 in the quarter-finals by 22-year-old Alexander Zverev in a 2hr 4min encounter that saw him lose his cool after receiving a point penalty - his first in a "long, long time".

Until Friday's match, Djokovic had won 24 straight sets in Asia, a run that included last year's Shanghai Masters and the title in Tokyo last week.

"I thought he took really a lot of good decisions, and he was super fast on his feet today, which I think made it really hard for me to get my freebies and winners off the baseline".

Tsitsipas has now beaten Djokovic twice in three matches. Tsitsipas will be filled with confidence following his win over Djokovic but the Greek superstar must continue playing his best tennis since Medvedev is in outstanding form.

World No. 7 Tsitsipas, who qualified for his maiden year-end ATP Finals yesterday, is the youngest player to defeat each member of the Big Three.

Of the six finals he has now reached in that period, he has won two titles, in Cincinnati and St. Petersburg. Hard court data this year shows the duo having nearly identical service points won numbers, but Medvedev winning nearly 7% more return points - a huge advantage - and given that he's had historical success against Tsitsipas in their previous meetings, all of which are from 2018 onwards, there's a strong case to suggest he's value for a small stake at market lines. The only time he lost a hard-court match after winning the first set was against Gael Monfils in Rotterdam. "The head-to-head is obviously a great thing to have, but more importantly for me is it was a match to maybe turn my year around a little bit, and the Race to London is also very important", Zverev said.
