Dutchman Haase tops Schwartzman to reach Rogers Cup semifinals

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.

As a reward for his unlikely victory, the 2016 Wimbledon junior champion will next face 29-year-old Frenchman Adrian Mannarino in the quarter-finals.

Ferrer has now lost all of his 17 contests against Federer, who is also vying to take the world number one spot from the injured Murray.

Australian Nick Kyrgios fell 6-4 6-3 to fourth seed Alexander Zverev as the German finally claimed victory over his opponent in their third meeting of the season. The 30-year-old Haase, ranked 52nd in the world, improved to 5-0 against 36th-ranked Schwartzman in his career. "It's tough to come back and play that same level".

His victory over Nadal earned him big headlines in Canada, with the Montreal Gazette declaring, "Star is born". Mannarino defeated Hyeon Chung of South Korea 6-3, 6-3.
