Greek 20-year-old Stefanos Tsitsipas broke into the world top 20 on Monday following his giant-killing run at the Toronto Masters.
The beaten finalist who lost out to world number one Rafael Nadal on Sunday vaulted into 15th place a day after his 20th birthday.
Tsitsipas, ranked 159th in the world one year ago, reached the final after eliminating four seeds along the way — Dominic Thiem, Novak Djokovic, Alexander Zverev and Kevin Anderson.
