Carreno Busta dispatches newcomer Shapovalov

06 September, 2017, 12:00 | Author: Carla Brady
  • Denis Shapovalov is through to the fourth round at the US Open

Kevin Anderson is a U.S. Open quarterfinalist for the second time in three years.

Anderson improved to 2-9 in fourth-rounders at majors.

The defeat - where he pushed the 12th seeded Carreno Busta to three tiebreaks - was the deepest the 18-year old from Richmond Hill, Ont., had ever gone in a senior Grand Slam tournament. NY will always have a special place for me.

Madison Keys, coached by Davenport, defeated Elise Mertens 6-3, 7-6 (6) during the first week of the US Open at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.

And del Potro vs Thiem is a rematch from past year. Shapovalov would rally and held a double break/set point opportunity on the Spaniard's serve at 6-5, 15-40, but missed back to back forehands to level at deuce. "Now I'm in quarterfinals again of a Grand Slam, first time here in US Open, and will try to continue".

But on this occasion, it was the 26-year-old Carreno Busta who continued his career-best season.

Maria Sharapova has been eliminated from the U.S. Open.

Sevastova will play unseeded American Sloane Stephens next.

With a powerful left-handed forehand, a one-handed backhand and flowing blond locks, the fresh-faced Shapovalov is also dealing with fame for the first time.

Playing in only her second Grand Slam tournament after missing almost a year with a right foot injury, Stephens advanced to face the victor of the match between Maria Sharapova and No. 16 seed Anastasija Sevastova. Although Denis won his next two service points, it was a surge too late. "Arthur Ashe (Stadium) is unbelievable".

Sharapova took the opener 7-5, before Sevastova evened things by taking the second 6-4. The Spaniard also went to the quarterfinals at the French Open in June, losing to eventual champion Rafael Nadal.




First serve percentage: Denis put 41/77 (53%) of his first serves in over the first two sets.

No. 12 seed Pablo Carreno Busta leads the Canadian teenager 7-6 (2), 7-6 (4) in the only match going on in Flushing Meadows.

"I think I really need to get back to work and my team is making sure that, first of all, I'm staying healthy, and second of all, I'm always trying to get better", he said.

The teenager had the chance to clinch the second set but Carreno Busta saved three break points and, despite Shapovalov winning 13 consecutive points to take a 3-0 lead in the third set, held on to serve out the match.

Shapovalov's instant popularity was evident in his breakout performance at last month's Rogers Cup in Montreal, where large crowds of fellow Canadians cheered on his unexpected run to the semifinals of that tournament.

"Honestly, it was so much fun to be part of that atmosphere and the match and this whole two weeks", Shapovalov said, as quoted on TennisWorldUSA.

On his way back to the locker-room at Arthur Ashe Stadium, Denis Shapovalov dropped his bags on the court to stop and thank the crowd.

The rain had slowed and was expected to stop Sunday afternoon.

It has been a remarkably quick rise for Shapovalov.

Injury-induced absences of Andy Murray, Novak Djokovic, Stan Wawrinka, Milos Raonic and Kei Nishikorit opened up the draw with Carreno Busta being a chief beneficiary. "I think that helps me in the matches". Just like the last two the Spaniard did what he had to do while Shapovalov yet again made several poor unforced errors, leading to a Carreno Busta win.

In the quarters Anderson will meet Sam Querrey who destroyed Mischa Zverev 6-2, 6-2, 6-1 in 1 hour, 16 minutes, the shortest completed men's match of the event this week.
