Paris - 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 No 1 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.
