ATP Finals : Tsitsipas Beats Zverev To Book Semi-Finals Spot

Debutant Stefanos Tsitsipas crushed defending Champion Alexander Zverev 6-3 and 6-2 to book his place in the last four of the ATP Finals with a match to spare.

The 21-year-old backed up his opening win over Daniil Medvedev with a virtuoso performance.

His straight-sets victory secured a top-two place in the Group and left Zverev, World Number One Rafael Nadal and Medvedev scrapping to join him in Saturday's Semi-Finals.

After losing the first set, Zverev's level tailed off alarmingly in the second set and Tsitsipas wrapped things up with an ace.
