Federer knocked out by Greek wunderkind Tsitsipas

Roger Federer’s bid for a hat-trick of Australian Open titles was crushed on Sunday as Greek wunderkind Stefanos Tsitsipas rose up to floor the Swiss master and become his nation’s first Grand Slam quarter-finalist. In a match pitting the oldest and youngest players left in the men’s draw, the 20-year-old Tsitsipas overhauled Federer 6-7(11) 7-6(3) 7-5 7-6(5) under the lights of Rod Laver Arena, sparking delirium among Greek fans out in force at Melbourne Park. Federer will rue his chances, having failed to convert any of the 12 break points he took from Tsitsipas over the course ofa riveting clash laden with sparkling shot-making. Tsitsipas will play 22nd-seeded Roberto Bautista Agut for a place in the semi-finals after the Spaniard held firm in a tense five-set duel to knock sixth seed Marin Cilic.
