Fast rising tennis player Stefanos Tsitsipas has beaten world number one Novak Djukovic in three sets on Friday, in the Shanghai Masters quarter-finals.

The talented Greek recovered from losing the opening three games in just seven minutes to shock the reigning champion 3-6, 7-5, 6-3.

A feat has been recorded so far by the young player as he has defeated top players like: Djokovic, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

The promising player will also face another major talent in his Saturday semi-final which is 23-year-old Daniil Medvedev.

21-year-old Tsitsipas sealed the deal with a gleeful smash and held both arms aloft, while Djokovic met his opponent with a warm embrace at the net.

“He deserved the victory, he was the better player,” said the 32-year-old Serbian, who had looked imperious up until now.’’
