Meet rising tennis star Denis Shapovalov

Meet rising tennis star Denis Shapovalov

With world No.2 Rafael Nadal eliminated on Thursday by 18-year-old Canadian Denis Shapovalov and world No.1 Andy Murray sidelined by a rib injury, Federer has an opportunity to regain the top spot.

Denis Shapovalov's historic defeat of Rafael Nadal on Thursday was not the first time the Canadian up-and-comer met the Spanish legend on the court. With hockey great Wayne Gretzky and Olympic swimming star Penny Oleksiak cheering for him from the seats, he also became the youngest quarterfinalist at a Masters Series tournament ever and is the youngest to beat a player ranked in the top two in the world since Nadal beat Federer in 2004 in Miami.

Kevin Anderson of South Africa downed American Sam Querrey 6-4, 6-1 and will next play fourth-seeded Alexander Zverev, who ousted 16th-seeded Nick Kyrgios 6-4, 6-3.

The momentum changed in the second set after a brief rain delay halted play for about 10 minutes with Shapovalov holding a 3-2 lead on serve. Shapovalov held his serve the rest of the way to knot the match at a set apiece.

Federer defeated Roberto Bautista-Agut of Spain 6-4, 6-4, winning 81 per cent of his first service points to finish the encounter after 68 minutes.

Federer is aiming for the third Rogers Cup win of his career and sixth title of a remarkable 2017 season. Shapovalov come back from down 3-0 in the tiebreak to take the set 7-6 (4) and win the match. Haase said it was hard for both players after playing tough three-set matches against seeded players earlier in the week.

Roger Federer overcame a weak first set to post a 4-6, 6-4, 6-2 victory over Spaniard David Ferrer in an earlier third-round match.

"We didn't get a chance to play, I was a little bummed out because I thought Rafa was going to watch me play before his match", he said with a laugh. "I knew that was a very big turning point", Shapovalov said. I came back really fast, from zero to 60 in eight months. "It drains you because you know you can do better, but actually your own body is not letting you". "After one-and-a-half years, I got back".
