The match was extremely close: Each player won 100 points. It offered a peek at the future of men's tennis, with Shapovalov seeded No. 20 and Tsitsipas No. 8. "I knew Stefanos was going to be a tough match," Shapovalov said. "I was ready for a long battle and, sure enough, it went the distance. I'm just happy with the way I controlled myself."
Shapovalov beat a Top 10 opponent for the second time in his career. He'll next play No. 28-seeded Frances Tiafoe, who eliminated David Goffin on Tuesday night 7-5, 7-6 (6). "We're both shotmakers," Shapovalov said. "I'm just ready for another fun, tough match."
