After knocking out Dominic Thiem and then Novak Djokovic, 19-year-old Tsitsipas took another big scalp, beating reigning champion Zverev 3-6 7-6 6-4.
In doing so, Tsitsipas became the youngest player to beat three top-10 players in the same tournament since a certain Rafa Nadal back in 2006 – and his performances have been the talk of tennis.
But after losing from a set and 5-2 up, Zverev wasn’t impressed with the standard from either player.

“I don’t think he played that well. I think the match was absolutely pathetic on all levels,” Zverev said.
“I’m very honest with you guys (the press). Today was an absolute pathetic match I don’t even think he played well."
