Denis Shapovalov sees US Open run finished by Pablo Carreno Busta

Denis Shapovalov sees US Open run finished by Pablo Carreno Busta

He next faces either No. 16 Lucas Pouille or No. 29 Diego Schwartzman.

Despite being unranked, Stephens has a great chance of reaching her first Grand Slam semifinal since the 2013 Australian Open.

Carreno Busta is into his second straight quarterfinal at a Slam after Paris.

The youngest man in the US Open fourth round since a 17-year-old Michael Chang in 1989 came out firing like an old pro.

Sevastova will play unseeded American Sloane Stephens next. "In the first round and second round as well, they are helping me a lot".

Playing in only her second Grand Slam tournament after missing almost a year with a right foot injury, Stephens advanced to face the victor of the match between Maria Sharapova and No. 16 seed Anastasija Sevastova.

Maria Sharapova, making her Grand Slam return after serving a 15-month doping ban, was to face Latvian 16th seed Anastasija Sevastova later on Ashe with the victor to play either American Sloane Stephens or Germany's Julia Goerges for a semi-final spot.

Goerges was overmatched in the third set.

Sharapova is trying to reach the quarterfinals in Flushing Meadows for the first time since 2012. She committed 13 unforced errors and won six points on serve over the seven games. "My goal was to be ranked 150th (on the ATP Tour), by the end of the season", said Shapovalov, who rose from No. 143 to 67th on August 14 after the Rogers Cup and will rise even higher after his performance at the U.S. Open. "He is very young so maybe in the future he will be one of the best". He also went to the quarterfinals at the French Open in June.

Denis Shapovalov will have to go five sets for the first time in his career to extend his U.S. Open run. However, the No. 2 seed also won the second set tiebreak 7-4.

According to information from the border forces of Bangladesh , the bodies of 15 children and 11 women were found. Tragically, at least 26 people have so far drowned in an attempt to flee the violence.


It was quite the ride in qualifying too; after beating Denis Kudla and Gastao Elias in straight sets, the 18-year-old found himself a set down to the World #195 Jan Satral in the final round of qualifying.

At 5-6 Carreno Busta had his back against the wall again but saved three set points, one of them after a 25-shot rally, which was the longest of the match thus far.

Shapovalov is trying to become the youngest US men's quarterfinalist since Andre Agassi in 1988.

Carreno Busta has never played either man before. He would send his return long before netting his return after a Carreno Busta double fault gave him a second look.

Shapovalov will have many positives to take out of his run at the US Open and the way he's been playing since the Rogers Cup earlier in August. Because of rains that started late Saturday and continued into Sunday morning, play on all outer courts was not to begin before noon.

Below is an overview of how Sunday afternoon unfolded.

At 18 years old, Shapovalov, the son of a former player in the soviet emigrated to Canada in 1999 after several years in Israel, has made a strong impression in NY.

Later men's last-16 matches pitted South African 28th seed Kevin Anderson against Italy's Paolo Lorenzi and Germany's 23rd-seeded Mischa Zverev against U.S. 17th seed Sam Querrey, whose July Wimbledon semi-final run is the deepest by anyone on his side of the draw. That half of the bracket, wide open because of injuries and upsets, will produce a first-time finalist in a Grand Slam tournament.

The power players Sunday were on the women's side.
