Denis Shapovalov says he doesn't remember taking that photo with Rafael Nadal

0:36 | Tennis         Stan Wawrinka Shuts Down 2017 Season Due to Knee Injury

Canadian teen tennis sensation Denis Shapovalov had the biggest win of his young career on Thursday night when he upset top-seeded Spaniard Rafael Nadal in the round of 16 at the Rogers Cup.

Shapovalov's win over Mannarino came just 24 hours after he defeated 10-time French Open champion Nadal to get into the quarters. With hockey great Wayne Gretzky and Olympic swimming star Penny Oleksiak cheering for him from the seats, he also became the youngest quarterfinalist at a Masters Series tournament ever and is the youngest to beat a player ranked in the top two in the world since Nadal beat Federer in 2004 in Miami. He'll play Germany's Alexander Zverev on Saturday, with the victor moving on to Sunday's final against the winner of a match between Robin Haase and Roger Federer. Shapovalov blasted a total of nine aces, including ones on his second serve that handcuffed Nadal.

Shapovalov started slowly by dropping the first set before settling into the match in the second.

Meanwhile, Roger Federer extended his winning streak to 15 matches as he beat Spain's Roberto Bautista Agut to reach the semi-finals.

Federer, who leads the ATP this season with five titles - including two grand slams - improved his 2017 record to 34-2 as he bids for a 94th career trophy.

The Guardian reported Friday a us official said the Chinese frigate sent radio warning at least 10 times to the USS McCain. McCain warship sailed within 12 miles of Mischief Reef in the disputed Spratly chain in the South China Sea .

Unseeded Argentine Diego Schwartzman posted a unusual win over American Jared Donaldson 0-6, 7-5, 7-5 to advance to a quarterfinal meeting with Robin Haase, the 52nd-ranked Dutchman who upset seventh-seeded Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria 7-6 (3), 4-6, 6-1.

Roger Federer overcame a weak first set to post a 4-6, 6-4, 6-2 victory over Spaniard David Ferrer in an earlier third-round match.

"I wasn't the player I was before my injury", Haase said.

"I played a lot of good matches, especially yesterday against (seventh-seeded Grigor) Dimitrov", Haase said.

"It's tough to come out and serve after a 12-minute rain delay". I was insecure. I had a lot of problems with other injuries after. "After one-and-a-half years, I got back". "It drains you because you know you can do better, but actually your own body is not letting you".
