Stefanos Tsitsipas upsets David Goffin to reach D.C. semifinals

Tennis


WASHINGTON — Greek teenager Stefanos Tsitsipas eliminated No. 3 seed David Goffin 6-3, 6-4 on Friday to reach the semifinals in his Citi Open debut.

The 19-year-old Tsitsipas is coming off his first run to the fourth round at a Grand Slam tournament, last month at Wimbledon.

He will face No. 1 seed Alexander Zverev or No. 7 Kei Nishikori, both past champions in Washington, in the semifinals. The quarterfinal between Zverev and Nishikori was in a third-set rain delay.

In the other half of the draw, three-time major champion Andy Murray pulled out of his quarterfinal after winning a trio of three-setters and lamenting a schedule that had him start his latest victory at midnight ET.
