Nearly a decade before 18-year-old Denis Shapovalov became one of the brightest young stars on the men's professional tennis tour, he was a tiny kid with long blonde hair posing for photos with Rafael Nadal and Igor Andreev ahead of their match at the 2008 Rogers Cup in Toronto.

Ferrer took the first set 6-4 against world number three, who had not dropped a set since his shock defeat to Tommy Haas at the Mercedes Cup in June.

In other results, third-seed Dominic Thiem of Austria was upset 6-4, 6-7 (7), 7-5 by Argentina's Diego Schwartzman and Fifth-seeded Kei Nishikori of Japan, a finalist past year, was ousted 6-7 (4), 7-6 (7), 7-5 by Gael Monfils. I was rather anxious about how I was going to come out of it", Federer said, "When I did come out of it, I was happy I woke up again, but I was sad that I had an operated knee.

"I wish him the best".

Shapovalov looked unfazed in facing the biggest opponent of his young career.

He advanced to a third-round meeting with Rafael Nadal, the top seed and a three-time Rogers Cup victor. That's why I have a lot of respect for this match today.

"I'm very thankful that I'm in this position", said Shapovalov, who had hockey great Wayne Gretzky and Olympic swimming star Penny Oleksiak cheering for him from the seats. Then at Wimbledon, he became the third Canadian to win a junior Grand Slam title, when he defeated Alex De Minaur of Australia in three sets. With Bouchard and leading Canadian men's player, Milos Raonic, both eliminated, it is safe to say all eyes are on Shapovalov.

In the women's event, now taking place at the Aviva Centre in Toronto, Sloane Stephens of the United States eliminated German third seed Angelique Kerber 6-2, 6-2 in 58 minutes to reach the quarter-finals.

Federer said that he did not get his rhythm until the end of the first set.

It showed even more in a spectacular game of 14 minutes, 30 seconds in the third set, marked by ten scores 40-40, and that Shapovalov was ripped off to give himself a lead of 2-1 in the round, not without saving three balls of breakage to the passage. The Canadian teen saved four match points in his opener against Rogerio Dutra Silva then outplayed Del Potro in straight sets.

At Toronto: Third round: Karolina Pliskova bt Naomi Osaka 6-2, 6-7 (4), 1-0 retd.; Caroline Garcia bt Catherine Bellis 6-4, 6-2. Mannarino dispatched Hyeon Chung, 6-3, 6-3.

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.
