Greek teenager Stefanos Tsitsipas upset Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic 6-3, 6-7 (5), 6-3 on Thursday afternoon in third-round play at the Rogers Cup.

The Serb had seven aces and never faced a break point in the one-hour 24-minute match, which just beat the afternoon delay.

"I thought I served well in the moments when I really need it and I was looking for the first serve", said Djokovic. "In the moments when I probably needed to step it up, I did".

Heavy morning rain delayed the match by about an hour.

19 year-old Stefanos Tsitsipas pulls off the biggest win of his career with a 6-3, 6-7 (5), 6-3 victory over Novak Djokovic at the Rogers Cup.

Second-seeded Alexander Zverev of Germany, the victor last week in Washington, beat American Bradley Klahn 6-4, 6-4, and fourth-seeded Kevin Anderson of South Africa edged Russia's Evgeny Donskoy 4-6, 6-2, 7-6 (0). Nadal will face Stan Wawrinka of Switzerland, a 1-6, 7-6 (2), 7-6 (10) victor over Marton Fucsovics of Hungary.

Tsitsipas, who turns 20 on Sunday, relied on his serve and forehand combination to get by Djokovic, who was competing in his first tournament since collecting his 13th grand slam title at the All England Club last month.

Anderson topped qualifier Ilya Ivashka of Belarus 7-5, 6-3, and Dimitrov beat American Frances Tiafoe 7-6 (1), 3-6, 7-6 (4).

Earlier Wednesday, tournament officials announced that Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina had withdrawn because of a left wrist injury.

Del Potro wrote on Twitter that his wrist "needs some days of rest".

In evening play, Denis Shapovalov of Richmond Hill, Ont., was scheduled to face Robin Haase of the Netherlands, top-seeded Rafael Nadal of Spain was to take on Swiss wild-card entry Stan Wawrinka and eighth-seeded American John Isner was to meet Russia's Karen Khachanov.

The Argentine, who looked to be in good form after reaching the final last week in Los Cabos, was replaced in the draw by Russian veteran Mikhail Youzhny.
