Greek teen Tsitsipas stuns Djokovic in Toronto

Nadal came from a mini-break down in the tiebreaker and secured victory on his second match point.

The 21-year-old German moved ahead early in the second set but Tsitsipas broke at 3-5 and held serve to pull event.

The World No.27 is through to the first ATP World Tour Masters 1000 quarter-final of his career.

'But I remained calm.

But Djokovic quickly built a lead in the tie-break and, although Tsitsipas threatened a fightback with further measured returns, the gap proved too great to bridge, taking the match to a decider with his third set point.

'That break [in the third set] was everything.

In other results, fourth seed and Wimbledon runner-up Kevin Anderson downed Ilya Ivashka of Belarus in straight sets. Commenting on an eventual match against the Serb, Polansky said: 'His game style, he's a little bit better for me, let's say, compared to when I play (Roger) Federer second round just because Federer takes the ball so early and really puts a lot of pressure on you with that', admitted Polansky, who lost to Federer at last year's Rogers Cup.

Scientists concerned about endangered orca still pushing body of her calf
The initial plan was to take the fish from seiners or reef netters, a maneuver the Lummi practiced Monday with success. She is deteriorating, and scientists are not seeing improvements in a loss of tissue behind her head, Thornton said.

Heavy morning rain delayed the match by about an hour.

World No. 1 tennis player Rafael Nadal says Canadian Denis Shapovalov has all the qualities needed to become a "big star". "If we would have played best-of-five, that's what the score should have been. I just patiently waited for the moment and it happened".

"I feel very proud for me, myself, and my country". But the teenager converted all four of his break-point opportunities while Zverev was five for 14.

His trademark retrieving skills were on display throughout the match but Tsitsipas used strong groundstrokes to push the pace and force Djokovic to fully stretch on several rallies. He rose to prominence previous year with a stellar run at the Rogers Cup in Montreal that ended with a semifinal loss to eventual champion Alex Zverev.

Tsitsipas, who turns 20 on Sunday, relied on his serve and forehand combination to get by Djokovic, who was competing in his first tournament since collecting his 13th grand slam title at the All England Club last month.

In the doubles quarterfinals, the top-seeded duo of Austria's Oliver Marach and Croatia's Mate Pavic edged Jean-Julien Rojer of the Netherlands and Romania's Horia Tecau 6-7 (5), 7-5, 10-6.
