Greek teen Stefanos Tsitsipas reaches Toronto final

Reigning Wimbledon Champion Novak Djokovic Wins Opener In Rogers Cup

Second-seeded Henri Kontinen of Finland and Australian John Peers completed a 7-6 (2), 4-6, 12-10 win over Croatia's Nikola Mektic and Austria's Alexander Peya in the evening just before rain delayed the proceedings.

Tsitsipas saved a match point in the deciding tiebreaker before outlasting fourth-seeded Kevin Anderson 6-7 (4), 6-4, 7-6 (7) in men's semifinal play at Aviva Centre.

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.

While Tsitsipas is very likely to also be a top 10 player in the future, and could quite conceivably have a better career than Anderson has managed eventually, the 19-year-old Greek still has some improving to do, and a further positive for a selection of Anderson tonight is the fact that he disposed of Grigor Dimitrov in just 67 minutes yesterday, while Tsitsipas needed nearly two-and-a-half hours to get the better of Zverev - Anderson should be the fresher player on court for this.

"I'm confused now, is this real?"

"I'm secure and I'm aggressive at the same time", Tsitsipas said.

Nadal got caught on the back foot in the first set against Cilic, who took the opener on his fourth chance.

The win over world No 3 Zverev looked unlikely when the 19-year-old dropped the first set and fell behind 2-5 in the second.

Tsitsipas broke in the ninth game of the second on the way into a tiebreaker, where he calmly converted on his fifth set point after saving two match points for the second-seeded Zverev.

If they are approved by the BC Utilities Commission the new rates would come into effect in September of 2019. A driver with no crashes could be paying the same premium as a driver with three at-fault crashes in a year.

The Greek saved all four break points he faced while breaking Anderson once in the afternoon struggle.

At 30-40, Zverev floated his second serve well long to end the match in two hours 27 minutes.

"This shows that with dedication and work, dreams do come true", Tsitsipas said.

"Sometimes when you concentrate too much, you lose the reality of what's happening", he said with a laugh. Serving for the set at 5-4, a teenager delivered a hold at love to close the set with a volley victor and gain the momentum before the decider, ready to fight for every point in order to reach his biggest final in a career so far. And I actually thought I was playing bad the whole match.

Following this match, Rafa Nadal is a [1.23] favourite to make the final by defeating Karen Khachanov, and there's some fascinating areas to discuss in advance. "Today, he definitely deserved to win".

"I always say when the opponent played better, I'm probably one of the most honest guys on tour", Zverev said.

"Right from the first point till the last, I felt I was in a really good frame of mind, playing the kind of tennis that I knew I wanted to be playing and needed to be playing".
