Greek teen Tsitsipas upsets Djokovic in Toronto

He rounded off his afternoon with back-to-back winners to send Djokovic, the victor of 30 Masters titles, out on a first match point.

Tsitsipas, the 19-year-old rising star, took two hours and 17 minutes to beat Djokovic in his first-ever match against the ninth-seeded Serbian, a victor of four Canadian Open titles and a 13-time Grand Slam champion.

Tsitsipas, ranked 27, spent just over two hours in advancing to the first Masters 1000 quarter-final of his career. It was all square on 4-4 when Tsitsipas attempted to break the world number ten's service, however Djokovic endured and led the set to a tie-break, which he eventually won, to bring the game to a draw (6-7).

He took advantage of a Djokovic unforced error for an early break at 4-2 and used a few 210-km/h serves to take the first set by holding at love.

The billionaire has held an 11% stake in the business since 2014 and also owns nearly 30% of Debenhams, its main rival. Chief executive Alex Williamson said: "We are hopeful that the current negotiations will shortly be concluded".

The 19-year-old who has been on fire also reached the fourth of the Wimbledon championships this year only to lose to American John Isner. "I'm putting Greece more deep into the map of tennis", Tsitsipas said.

Heavy morning rain delayed the match by about an hour. "If we would have played best-of-five, that's what the score should have been". He just played better in the decisive moments. I don't know about giving two away in your home country, regardless to a top player.

"I was serving well so that break was everything", Tsitsipas said.

"The level of tennis today, in my opinion, was not the highest - it was alright", Tsitsipas said.
