Madrid (AFP) –


Stefanos Tsitsipas knocked defending champion Alexander Zverev out of the Madrid Open in the quarter-finals on Friday, winning 7-5, 3-6, 6-2.

German third seed Zverev has yet to win a trophy this season and stands 4-5 on clay this spring.

Tsitsipas, the eighth seeded Greek, will face either five-time champion Rafael Nadal or Stan Wawrinka for a place in the final.
