Stefanos Tsitsipas earned one of the biggest wins of his career after he upset world No. 1 Novak Djokovic 3-6 7-5 6-3 in the quarter-finals of the Shanghai Masters.

The Greek youngster served 11 aces, won 83 per cent points off his first serve, broke Djokovic’s serve twice to come out on top after two hours and two minutes.

That wasn’t the only good news for Tsitsipas on the day.

Just seconds after the contest, during a quick interview, the 21-year-old was informed he had qualified for the year-ending ATP Finals. And his reaction was priceless.

“No way. Really? I didn’t know,” an amused Tsitsipas replied, before going on: “I had no clue. Honestly? Really? Is that true.

“Yes? That’s great. You can see that from my reaction… I had no idea. I wasn’t even looking at any rankings recently, so knowing that I have secured (a berth) is amazing.”


Tsitsipas, who will play the year-ending tournament for the first time, will join the likes of Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Daniil Medvedev and Dominic Thiem among the others in the draw that gets under way on November 10.
