Greek tennis star Stefanos Tsitsipas has just become the youngest bloke since Novak Djokovic to make a Grand Slam semi-final.

Tsitsipas beat Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut 7-5, 4-6, 6-4, 7-6 (7-2) to book a meeting with either Rafael Nadal or American Frances Tiafoe.

The 20-year-old is the youngest player to make a Grand Slam semi-final since Djokovic beat David Ferrer in straight sets to make the 2007 US Open final.

"It all feels like a fairytale, almost," Tsitsipas exclaimed after the match.

"I'm just living the dream, living what I've been working hard for."

Tsitispas’s semi-final will be on Thursday night.

Eddie McGuire had some ideas as to how we can claim Tsitsipas as an Aussie!
