Shapovalov reached the quarter-finals of the $4.9-million Rogers Cup Canadian Open men’s tennis championships Thursday, going toe-to-toe with top-seeded Rafael Nadal and emerging with a 4-6, 6-3, 7-6 (4) victory.

Shapovalov, the youngest player in the top 200, has been making his mark on the second-tier Challenger circuit, but his performance this week shows he has no respect for his elders.

He reached the third round with wins over Rogerio Dutra Silva and 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro.
