Rafael Nadal two wins away from regaining ATP No. 1 tennis ranking

But all went in vain as the Spaniard lost to Denis Shapovalov 3-6 6-4 7-6 (7-4) in the third round of the Rogers Cup in Montreal, today.

In the women's singles, Japan's Naomi Osaka beat 15th-seeded Anastasija Sevastova of Latvia 6-3, 6-4 to advance to the third round.

Shapovalov advanced to a quarter-final meeting with France's Adrian Mannarino, who defeated Hyeon Chung 6-3 6-3.

Andy Murray will remain at No. 1 for another week but at the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati next week, Nadal and Roger Federer will battle for the top spot.

World's oldest man and Holocaust survivor dies in Israel aged 114
Mr Kristal, who lived in Haifa, Israel, hit the headlines past year after deciding to celebrate his bar mitzvah a century late. His two children died in the ghetto and his first wife was murdered in the Auschwitz gas chambers but Krista never gave up.

Rafael Nadal took a step closer to the world No 1 ranking as he started his Rogers Cup campaign by overwhelming Borna Coric.

Roger Federer survived the end of his streak of winning 32 consecutive sets to beat David Ferrer and reach the last eight of the Rogers Cup. "If he loses playing a good match, was good for him".

After losing the opening set, Shapovalov stormed back to take the second 6-4. But Shapovalov still did tremendously well to overcome the nerves he was likely feeling, and put in another great performance against a top player. The French veteran saved 4 match points and eventually won the event after the tie break 6-7 (4), 7-5, 7-6 (6).

"I knew that when I was healthy, I was going to be able to have chances to win slams again, to play against the best, and beat the best". With the set being brought to a tiebreak, del Potro had the upper hand when he jumped out to a 3-1 lead, looking on course to send the match into a deciding set.

In the last 16, Zverev will face Australia's Nick Kyrgios, who brushed aside Victor Troicki 6-1 6-2.

And it came back to haunt him as Nadal broke back, silencing the home crowd, before levelling the match at 4-4.

Shapovalov, who is ranked 143rd in the world, had just three wins this season coming into the tournament.

Federer grabbed a second service break late in the third set to effectively seal the victory and improve to 17-0 lifetime against the 35-year-old Spaniard.
