Stefanos Tsitsipas, of Greece, reacts after defeating Alexander Zverev, of Germany, in Rogers Cup quarterfinal tennis tournament action in Toronto, Friday, Aug. 10, 2018.

He did it again Saturday and took down yet another top-10 player in the process.

Tsitsipas dropped his racket, smiled and then screamed in front of a frenzied crowd after world number six Anderson sent a backhand long on match point.

"I had to learn that and understand that good things come with time and it takes time especially after surgery to hit thousands and thousands of balls and really get a comfortable feel on the court and eventually start playing well". Speaking about his achievement, Nadal said: 'I am satisfied with the week. I would never imagine that I could pull this out in a single tournament.

"For me, the favourite is Djokovic, although [Roger] Federer and [Rafael] Nadal are always there", Popovic told French newspaper L'Equipe.

Tsitsipas will play his first ATP Masters 1000 final on his 20th birthday on Sunday against world number one Nadal after the Spaniard defeated Karen Khachanov 7-6 (3) 6-4 in their rain-delayed evening match. I need to resist and play aggressive.

"He's a complex player". Has passion for the game. "He's about everything", said Nadal. "On the one match point that I had, he came up with an unbelievable backhand cross-court victor - it was a very impressive effort from him".

Low inflation means there's no case for 'near term' rate hikes: RBA

His first upset victim was No. 8 Dominic Thiem in the second round.

Not bad for someone ranked 168th in the world at this time a year ago. Big shot from the baseline. Of course I can play little bit better, but that's the work of every day.

Nadal won a battle of the tennis generations with Tsitsipas last April with a straight sets win in the final of the Barcelona Open.

With the win, Tsitsipas is projected to climb to at least No 15 when the new rankings are released on Monday.

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

"I think the biggest thing I was impressed with was definitely his mentality", said the sixth-ranked Anderson.

"He stayed pretty solid throughout the match".

He will be the first unseeded finalist in Canada since Nicolas Kiefer in 2008.

Khachanov, the world No. 38 from Russian Federation, lost his first set of the week to the three-time Rogers Cup champion.

Next up for Tsitsipas is a showdown with big-serving South African Kevin Anderson, who thrashed Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov 6-2 6-2 earlier on Friday.

"To win this match is important, it's very important to be in the final of Toronto", Nadal said after running his season record to 39-3 in a match which ended after midnight local time.

"On hard in the United States, in the last seven, eight years, it was him who played better".
