There is a new up-and-coming name in Canadian tennis y'all.
After reaching the semis of the Rogers Cup (Canadian Open) - and lifting his ranking from ~150 to 69 -he qualified for the U.S. Open - and just beat 8th seed Joe-Willie Tsonga to advance to to the third round.
It does not hurt him that he has about a hundred times as much personality as Milos Raonic.
Injuries and upsets have characterized the 2017 U.S. Open. The tournament began without injured stars like Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, Stan Wawrinka and Milos Raonic, and now the highest seed left in Shapovalovs side of the draw is No. 12 Pablo Carreo Busta, Shapovalovs next opponent.
