Felix Auger-Aliassime beats Stefanos Tsitsipas 7-5 6-2 at Queen's to reach the semi-finals

Top seed Stefanos Tsitsipas lost in straight sets in the Queen's quarter-finals to Canadian teenager Felix Auger-Aliassime.

Tsitsipas, 20, lost 7-5 6-2 to the 18-year-old eighth seed.

Auger-Aliassime, the youngest Queen's semi-finalist since Lleyton Hewitt in 1999, beat Grigor Dimitrov and Nick Kyrgios in the first two rounds.

"I had zero expectations coming here. I had three matches against amazing players but held my nerve," he said.

"We'll see how far I can go here and at Wimbledon."

The Canadian, who made his only Grand Slam main draw appearance at the 2018 US Open, will play Andy Murray's doubles partner Feliciano Lopez in the semi-finals.

Auger-Aliassime took the first set by breaking his Greek opponent's serve when leading 6-5 and Tsitsipas looked increasingly uncomfortable, taking a medical timeout to receive treatment on his shoulder in the second set.

The teenager saved three break points to take a 4-1 lead and hit a backhand out of Tsitsipas' reach to break serve and win the match.

"He's the most difficult opponent I've ever faced, and I think it's going to take a couple of tries to beat him," said Tsitsipas, who has faced Auger-Aliassime three times and never won.

"It's upsetting, obviously, that he's better than me. I have to accept that."

Earlier in the day, Russian fourth seed Daniil Medvedev beat Argentina's Diego Schwartzman 6-2 6-2 and will face France's Gilles Simon, who beat Nicolas Mahut 7-6 (7-5) 5-7 7-6 (7-3), in the semi-finals.
