Shapovalov's US Open star rises with win over Edmund

Shapovalov's US Open star rises with win over Edmund”

Canadian qualifier Denis Shapovalov became the youngest player to reach the US Open last 16 since 1989 on Friday (Sept 1) when British opponent Kyle Edmund retired from their third-round match with a neck injury.

The problem seemed to arise early in the third set, and treatment was first dispensed at 2-3 when Edmund sat down in his chair.

The left-hander from Richmond Hill, Ont., was leading 3-6, 6-3, 6-3, 1-0 before Edmund abandoned the match.

He was tested by Edmund today but responded quickly with some scintillating tennis after dropping the opening set.

The charismatic 18-year-old has had Flushing Meadows buzzing and while his win over the wounded Edmund did not light up Arthur Ashe Stadium court it did provide another glimpse of the talent former world number one Mats Wilander has described as a combination of Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal.

Shapovalov, meanwhile, becomes the youngest man to reach the fourth round of a grand slam since Marat Safin at the French Open in 1998 and has a great opportunity to go further in a wide open section of the draw.

He will play Spain's Pablo Carreno Busta for a place in the quarter-finals.
