TENNIS- 20 year Stefanos Tsitsipas has become the first player to enter the men’s singles semifinals in Australian Open on Tuesday.

After registering a splendid win over 20 time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer in the last 16 round, Greek sensation Tsitsipas defeated Roberto Bautista Agut 7-5 4-6 6-4 7-6(2) to enter his maiden Grand Slam semi-final.

At 20 years of age, he is the youngest semi-finalist at Melbourne Park since American Andy Roddick in 2003.

“I told people before that Grand Slam semis was my goal. When I was answering that question I thought I was crazy. But no, it’s real. It happened,” he said after the win.

He will next face the winner of the other quarterfinal between Rafael Nadal and Frances Tiafoe.
