Canadian teenager Denis Shapovalov's high-flying run continues at the US Open

Canadian teenager Denis Shapovalov's high-flying run continues at the US Open

From break point down in the opening game of the third, Shapovalov won twelve points in a row to establish a 3-0 lead.

American Sloane Stephens has reached the U.S. Open quarterfinals for the first time by upsetting No. 30 Julia Goerges 6-3, 3-6, 6-1.

"I really couldn't have done anything better out there tonight, I was in the zone", Querrey said postmatch on ESPN.

"I think Pablo played a very great match". "I don't think I played as well today as I have been these past two weeks, but, I mean, that's tennis". "Honestly, I think it was the sound, the roar of the crowd [after Sunday's match] when I put my bags down and went out to applaud them".

Denis Shapovalov vowed to return to NY and "do some damage" after his US Open adventure ended in a fourth-round defeat by Pablo Carreno Busta.

Such is the new reality for the 18-year-old Canadian, whose unforeseen U.S. Open run was halted by Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta (6-7, 6-7, 6-7) in the fourth round Sunday.

Carreno Busta, who will play in his second quarter-final of the year at a major, will next face either 29th-seeded Argentine Diego Schwartzman or 16th-seeded Lucas Pouille of France.

The 25-year-old said: "I am really surprised because I was just thinking about the leg in the fourth set". "In the first round and second round as well, they are helping me a lot". I can not describe it.

"I didn't expect to be this far along at this point in the season. You never know when your opponent is going to drop a little bit or make a mistake, so I just try to fight all the time".

Trump threatens to stop trading with countries doing business with North Korea
Kim Jong-un referred to North Korea's first ICBM test, conducted on the fourth of July, as a "gift package for the Yankees". China is also under pressure to do more to deter North Korea's provocations as its most powerful ally and patron.

It stayed that way, with the youngster grittily staving off 0-40 in the ninth game, and yet again it would got to a tie-break, and a near carbon-copy of the first two, with the increasingly clutch and confident Spaniard reeling off fine one-two points to reach 6-1. The Spaniard also went to the quarterfinals at the French Open in June, losing to eventual champion Rafael Nadal.

Shapovalov, ranked No. 69 in the world, could also benefit from the early suffered by 2014 US Open victor Marin Cilic and rising German star Alexander Zverev.

But he will have to wait a little longer after 12th seed Carreno Busta, the highest-ranked man left in the bottom half of the draw, battled to a 7-6 (7/2) 7-6 (7/4) 7-6 (7/3) victory. After his run at the US Open, he will likely find himself in the top 50 when the rankings are released next week.

The one thing he is still working on is what a young Andre Agassi wrote in his autobiography that he had to learn early in his career: being patient and waiting for the right moments to pull the trigger on those weapons. "It's just been, you know, two tournaments, but I really feel like I have to put in a lot of work this offseason to try and secure my spot in these rankings and just to be able to compete with these guys, yeah, week in and week out".

"There's going to be a lot of tough weeks ahead and I'm ready for that as well".

Anderson, a US Open quarterfinalist for the second time in three years, eliminated unseeded Paolo Lorenzi of Italy 6-4, 6-3, 6-7 (4), 6-4. The 6-foot-8 Anderson finally lost serve but managed to overcome a break down in the fourth to close out the Italian debutante. He also reached the quarters at the 2015 U.S. Open.

It has been an impressive tournament for Shapovalov, who came through three rounds of qualifying to play in the US Open and knocked out eighth seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the second round.
