Greek teen Tsitsipas vs. Nadal in Toronto final

039;Rafael Nadal's superstitions have nothing to do with tennis'- Zverev

Rafael Nadal fell victim at last year's Rogers Cup to a rising star in Denis Shapovalov, who was just making his mark on the ATP Tour, and sought his first professional title. I would never imagine that I could pull this out in a single tournament.

Tsitsipas advanced past No. 2 Alex Zverev, No. 4 Kevin Anderson, No. 7 Dominic Thiem and No. 9 Novak Djokovic to earn a spot against Nadal.

"It doesn't matter what the score".

"On the one match point that I had, he came up with an unbelievable backhand cross-court victor - it was a very impressive effort from him".

The variety seemed to work against the hard-serving South African, who did not convert one of his four-break point opportunities in the two-hour 48-minute match. "I'm always going to go to the ball", Tsitsipas said. Nadal will push his rival to the limits with the second serve return and he should create more break chances, hoping for a good start that will break the resistance of his rival who must be very exhausted after four great wins over the better-ranked opponents.

Trump adviser Stone's ex-aide refuses to appear before grand jury
Stone himself has not yet been questioned or subpoenaed in the investigation. Miller worked for Stone during Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign.

He did that with a service victor in game eight, wrapping up the first part of the match 6-2 in 40 minutes and hoping for more of the same in the rest of the match. "I think the match was absolutely pathetic on all levels", Zverev said. "Today, he definitely deserved to win". Tsitsipas could not endure the rallies against the toughest possible rival and he sent another forehand wide to lose his serve at the start of set number two, sealing his fate when his forehand landed long in game three to fall 6-2 3-0 behind. "It's not the first time".

Tsitsipas is the first unseeded Rogers Cup finalist since Nicolas Kiefer lost to Nadal in 2008.

But 32-year-old Nadal, the 17-time grand slam victor, went on to triumph in the battle of the generations.

Second-seeded Henri Kontinen of Finland and Australian John Peers edged Croatia's Nikola Mektic and Austria's Alexander Peya 7-6 (2), 4-6, 12-10 in the other semi.

Canadian doubles great Daniel Nestor was to be inducted into the Canadian Tennis Hall of Fame before the Nadal-Khachanov match, but rain postponed the ceremony. It's expected to be the last competitive appearance for the 45-year-old Toronto player.
