US Open 2017: Marin Cilic loses to Diego Schwartzman in third round

US Open 2017: Marin Cilic loses to Diego Schwartzman in third round”

Shapovalov needed to go through three qualifying matches just to get into the main draw at Flushing Meadows, so he has played a half-dozen times in an 11-day span.

He is also in the half of the draw where Cilic was the only man left to have made a Grand Slam final. "Hopefully it's nothing too serious", said Shapovalov.

Schwartzman played far from a ideal match, committing 48 unforced errors and almost squandering a double-break lead in the fourth set, but he hung on to win in three hours and 23 minutes. Only current number one Karolina Pliskova and fourth-seeded Elina Svitolina could deny her reaching the top for the first time.

Andy Murray's withdrawal left Cilic as the only player in that section to have won one of the sport's biggest titles and one of only three previous slam finalists.

"Someone who comes back from a drugs sentence - performance-enhancing drugs - and all of a sudden gets to play every single match on Center Court, I think that's a questionable thing to do", said ousted Danish fifth seed Caroline Wozniacki.

The South American, now 2-13 against top-10 opponents, plays his first Slam last-16 match against the later victor between French 16th seed Lucas Pouille and Kazak qualifier Mikhail Kukushkin in a draw half without a top-10 player.

But he has a chance to make a name for himself for the right reasons, with Pablo Carreno Busta awaiting him in the fourth round after the Spaniard's 6-3 6-4 6-3 victory over Nicolas Mahut. She returned from her ban in April and was given a wildcard into the US Open to make her Grand Slam return. He will face No. 23 Mischa Zverev, who eliminated 10th-seeded John Isner 6-4, 6-3, 7-6 (5) on Friday night. "I'll try to be more quiet in the end of the next match when I finish".

Shapovalov is an up-and-coming player who won the Wimbledon junior title just past year.

At Montreal last month, he became the youngest man ever to reach the semifinals at a Masters event, and he grabbed attention this week by knocking off No. 8 seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, a finalist at the 2008 Australian Open.

"Obviously I'm super-excited", United States ninth seed Venus said. "It's just kind of become a little bit of my trademark".

Meanwhile women's third seed Garbine Muguruza easily progressed into the fourth round with a 6-1 6-1 demolition of Slovakian Magdalena Rybarikova to set up an exciting clash with Petra Kvitova.

However, he has even shocked himself to get this far in NY, where he had only once previously got out of the first round.
