Tsitsipas to play Rogers Cup final on birthday

12 Août, 2018, 20:20 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion

The 32-year-old Spanish star beat Tsitsipas in April in the Barcelona final in their only meeting.

He had beaten world number eight Dominic Thiem in the second round and then dispatched Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic before beating Alexander Zverev in the quarter-finals.

Anderson missed out on a match point off his own serve as Tsitsipas slammed over a backhand cross-court victor.

"I didn't even have this in my head", said Tsitsipas.

"It feels like I'm never losing it". "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". He'll crack the top 15 in the world rankings next week.

"At the same time it had to happen for me to really understand myself on a deeper level, understand what I need to do and in which way I need to approach this sport and training and to get myself back on a desired level".

Under a blazing afternoon sun, Tsitsipas and Anderson relied on their service games in the opening set on the showcase hardcourt. He fought back from a break point again in the eighth and the set went all the way to a tiebreak.

At 1-1 in the second set, Tsitsipas won a long rally at deuce and completed the break when Anderson pushed a return wide. "It's obviously incredibly hard losing a match like where it's so close at such a big stage of the tournament", Anderson said.

"He stayed pretty solid throughout the match". "It's not the first time". 'I'm very honest with you guys (the press).

Tsitsipas is the first unseeded Rogers Cup finalist since Nicolas Kiefer lost to Nadal in 2008.

In doubles semifinal play, Raven Klaasen of South Africa and Michael Venus of New Zealand defeated the top-seeded duo of Austria's Oliver Marach and Croatia's Mate Pavic 4-6, 7-6 (5), 10-3. Anderson beat fifth-seeded Grigor Dimitrov 6-2, 6-2.

"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. It's expected to be the last competitive appearance for the 45-year-old Toronto player.
