TORONTO – Greek teen Stefanos Tsitsipas became the youngest player to beat four straight top-10 players in an event since the ATP World Tour was established in 1990, outlasting Kevin Anderson, 6-7 (4), 6-4, 7-6 (7), on Saturday to reach the Rogers Cup final.

Tsitsipas will celebrate his 20th birthday Sunday by facing top-ranked Rafael Nadal in a bid for his first tour title.

“Playing in a Masters 1000 final is the best thing that can happen on your birthday,” Tsitsipas said. “I cannot believe it.”

Nadal, chasing his 80th tour title, beat Karen Khachanov 7-6 (3), 6-4 in the rain-delayed night match that ended after midnight.
