Alexander Zverev qualified his match against Stefanos Tsitsipas as pathetic & # 39; after the Greek uncle stunned him at the Rogers Cup on Friday.

The teenager knocked defending champion Zverev down 3-6, 7-6 (11), and 6-4 to reach the semifinals in Toronto, leaving the German enraged at his press conference.

"I do not think he played so well, I think the game was absolutely pathetic at all levels," Zverev said. "I am very sincere with you (the press) Today was an absolutely pathetic game, I do not even think I played well."

The victory over the world number 3 Zverev seemed unlikely when the 19-year-old fell in the first set and fell by 2-5 in the second.

But Tsitsipas managed to save two match points and changed the momentum after beating Zverev in a marathon second playoff time.

The extension of the match was worth it for Tsitsipas, since Zverev made several uncharacteristic errors in a tight third set and delivered the world No. 27 victory with double fault in the match point.

The victory was the Greek's third consecutive victory over an opponent in the top 10 after he dispatched Dominic Thiem and Novak Djokovic in the previous two rounds.

The following for Tsitsipas is a confrontation with the great South African Kevin Anderson, who defeated the Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov 6-2 and 6-2 on Friday.

The fourth favorite Anderson, finalist at Wimbledon last month, never broke down and won 81 percent of his first serves.

"I do not think he played so well, I think the game was absolutely pathetic," Zverev said.
