Djokovic stunned by Greek teen Tsitsipas in Toronto third round

Rafael Nadal

"With each game, with each point that I play, I feel more confident, more stable on the court, and everything falls into its place".

"I'm pretty comfortable with it - it's good to have shot clock in the tournaments prior to the US Open".

Greece's Stefanos Tsitsipas set up a match against Djokovic, knocking off seventh-seeded Dominic Thiem of Austria, 6-3, 7-6 (6).

Djokovic had defeated Peter Polansky and Mirza Basic, but he knew that wasn't playing at his best.

"Losing in this kind of tournament, it's not something I don't care about", Djokovic said. But I have to accept it, deal with it, and move on.

"I knew that at some point he's going to break, and I just patiently waited for this moment and it happened".

Tsitsipas set up match point with a scorching cross-court victor before completing the victory in 2 hours, 17 minutes. "So I'm just trying to concentrate and getting as many points as I can, staying concentrated on my work".

Nadal will face Stan Wawrinka in the round of 16 after the Swiss rallied to beat Hungarian Marton Fucsovics 1-6 7-6 (2) 7-6 (10).
