Nadal stays on track, Tsitsipas stuns Zverev

Rafael Nadal in action against Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece in the Rogers Cup final on Sunday

Top seed Nadal fought back from a set down to beat sixth seeded Croatian Marin Cilic 2-6, 6-4, 6-4, while Khachanov dispatched Dutchman Robin Haase 6-3, 6-1.

The Greek made history by becoming the youngest player to beat four top-10 players in an event since the ATP World Tour was established in 1990.

Stefanos Tsitsipas saved two match points to beat defending champion Alexander Zverev in their quarterfinal contest 3-6, 7-6 (13/11), 6-4.

Nadal's Toronto win was notable.

The Greek teenager, who turns 20 on Sunday's final day, defeated his third straight top 10 opponent at the tournament after knocking out Dominic Thiem in the second round and 13-time major victor Novak Djokovic in the third.

Despite his recent success Tsitsipas will be a big underdog when he takes on French Open champion Nadal, who will be seeking his 33rd career Masters 1000 title.

He said he stayed positive in the tiebreaker, knowing one or two points can make the difference, and reflected on how significant an achievement it is to make the final of a Masters event at such a young age. "I try to play every match with the highest possible passion, it's a special feeling that I have on court".

Tsitsipas's breakout season has included a run to the final in Barcelona - where he lost to Nadal in their only previous meeting - and semifinal appearances in Estoril and Washington. Numerous forehand errors by Halep gave Stephens a 4-0 lead in the tiebreak and the American went up 6-4 before Halep rallied, crushing a backhand down the line to earn her first set point, which she converted.

"It's true ... that's how you feel when you play against him".

"Not only was I accepting some tough personal stuff, but I just was in a funk", Williams said in an Instagram post.

"I'm secure and I'm aggressive at the same time", Tsitsipas said. "All along I could feel the crowd support, I knew I was still in the match". He'll crack the top 15 in the world rankings next week.
