NewsAlert: Canadian teenager Denis Shapovalov upsets top seed Rafael Nadal

Federer Nadal stroll in Montreal openers

He's a great fighter on the court.

The Spaniard can achieve the top spot if he makes the semi-finals and is on course after moving into the third round with a comfortable 6-1, 6-2 win over Borna Coric.

Blistering a 134 miles per hour ace down the middle for 4-all, Shapovalov blasted a forehand victor then earned match points when Nadal splattered a forehand into net.

Polansky never looked comfortable after he double faulted twice in his first service game and had difficulty handling Federer's pinpoint serves.

We have seen one exciting match between Gael Monfils and Kei Nishikori. With Novak Djokvic and Andy Murray dealing with recurring injury woes, the tennis world is expecting either Federer or Nadal to continue their dominance of 2017 with another age-defying feat.

Shapovalov, the youngest player in the top 200, has been making his mark on the second-tier Challenger circuit, but his performance this week shows he has no respect for his elders.

"One of the first, and definitely the last time I will be holding a racket", swimmer Oleksiak tweeted. Kyrgios swatted aside Victor Troicki 6-1, 6-2.

The two held serve through the third. He also halted Nadal's bid to regain the No. 1 ranking, which the Spaniard could have achieved by reaching the semifinals. "I'm continuing to work hard on the court with the aim of being in NY". Credit to 18-year-old Shapovalov, though.

"But to beat a player of this category, of this talent, is very inspiring for me, a huge confidence boost". Nadal's serve is proving to be more and more of a weapon this season, his career-high 23 aces during his five-setter against Muller at Wimbledon a real testament to that. With him being a young star, it will be interesting to see where this takes him for the rest of the tournament and beyond. But it's looking increasingly likely that Shapovalov will be knocking on the door of the top 100 sooner rather than later, and from there who knows what he could achieve.

Serving to consolidate the break, the Canadian owned a 30-0 lead before del Potro fought back to clinch the immediate break back, keeping the scores level.

German Alexander Zverev has earned a place in the quarter-finals of the component male of the Rogers Cup thanks to a victory two rounds in the face of the Australian Nick Kyrgios, 6-4, 6-3, on Thursday night on the centre court of the Uniprix Stadium. But the Frenchman roared back into life, stealing a march in the second and set, and threatening in the decider.

The pair continued to trade games up until a tie-break, ... "It wasn't the closest match today, but they were there for Peter when he needed the crowd and he hit good shots". Sometimes they have had to win ugly, and it's an excellent sign for Zverev that he is showing he can do the same.

It was one of the biggest wins in Canadian tennis history and it came at the tournament that some still call the Canadian Open.
