Rafael Nadal Stunned by 18-Year-Old Denis Shapovalov at Rogers Cup

The Canadian Press Canadian Denis Shapovalov won the biggest match of his young career

The Spaniard was set to replace Andy Murray at the top of the rankings should he reach the semi-finals of the ongoing Rogers Cup.

Speaking after the 3-6 6-4 7-6 (6-4) upset, Nadal said: 'It's my worst loss of the year because it's my loss to the opponent with the lowest ranking and because I had the chance to be world number one.

"He played well", Nadal said.

Federer also progressed to the last eight today, with victory over Spain's David Ferrer. I thought that was really nice'.

Elsewhere, on Wednesday, France's Gael Monfils saved four match points before digging deep to defeat Japanese fifth seed Kei Nishikori in an attritional three-set duel. Kyrgios swatted aside Victor Troicki 6-1, 6-2.

Benn clocked a time of two minutes, 16.45 seconds to easily outdistance the rest of the field.

Roger Federer has cruised to victory in less than an hour in his tennis match since winning a record eighth Wimbledon title in July. "He played with the right determination in the important moments".

"I think I stayed pretty calm", said Shapovalov. "Just to play against him is a huge honour for me". "But that's like this".

Shapovalov is also the youngest player to reach the quarter-finals at a ATP Masters 1,000 event. In October 2015, when he was 16, Shapovalov helped Canada secure its first Junior Davis Cup title.

Nadal won't take him lightly.

Shapovalov was the obvious crowd favourite, but Nadal's impressive first set win shut the packed Centre Court. When you play bad, you have to win these matches.

Romania's Simona Halep, who won this tournament last year, eased through 6-1, 6-0 against the Czech Republic's Barbora Strycova. Sometimes they have had to win ugly, and it's an excellent sign for Zverev that he is showing he can do the same. The Croatian took only 3 gems throughout the whole match, 6-1, 6-2. But he's gone one better this year, defeating Rogerio Dutra Silva in the first round before toppling his idol Juan Martin Del Potro in the second round. His ball was just so heavy. "But, you know, he's honestly the best player I've ever played in my life", Shapovalov said.

We met him at WIMBLEDON. "Guys I'm used to playing, if I hit really hard, they'll kind of block it but he's constantly moving forward like a freight train".

The last quarter final pairing will see Diego Schwartzman of Argentina taking on Robin Haase of the Netherlands after beating Jared Donaldson 0-6 7-5 7-5. It was almost a repeat of the score line from their match in Toronto where Federer won 6-2 6-0. Had he reached the semifinals, he would have surpassed Andy Murray and moved into the top spot.
