Denis Shapovalov has become the first Canadian to ever reach the quarterfinals in men's singles at the U.S. Open following a four-set victory over No. 7 seed David Goffin of Belgium on Sunday.
The 12th-seeded Shapovalov toppled Goffin: 6-7 (7), 6-3, 6-4, 6-3 in the fourth round of the Grand Slam tournament to advance.
He will face Spain's Pablo Carreno Busta in the quarters. The Spaniard got into the final eight when his opponent and top seed Novak Djokovic was defaulted from their fourth-round match after he accidentally hit a line judge with a tennis ball.
Shapovalov was broken only once and it came in the fourth set, while converting five break points against his opponent. He fired 13 aces and 52 winners.
