Pablo Carreno Busta dispatches newcomer Denis Shapovalov

Again, Shapovalov's forehand let him down, sending a shot long to hand Carreno Busta the set point.

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. "In the first round and second round as well, they are helping me a lot".

"It was so much fun to be part of that atmosphere in the match", said Shapovalov, who had to win three qualifying matches to make the main draw of the Grand Slam event. "I still think I have a lot of work to do".

Schwartzman received treatment on his upper right leg in the third set but showed no ill effect.

Despite now at a career high of #69, the Canadian wasn't able to gain direct entry to the US Open and while also not given a wildcard, his only entry route was to qualify. The fact that he had just gone out in the fourth round - beaten by the relentless line and length of 12th seed Pablo Carreno Busta - didn't seem to bother them, because Shapovalov is already building a grand reputation after three successive outings on the world's largest tennis court.

Like any Canadian, Shapovalov loves ice hockey, but believes that the discipline phagocyte of potential tennis players. "I am really happy to be in the quarterfinals this year".

Once again, the set required a tiebreak and it was even more déjà-vu. After holding serve in the first game, the Canadian reeled off eight straight points to break Carreno Busta's serve and hold his own, and have a 3-0 lead in the set. His run was done.

"It was incredible matches", Carreno Busta said.

'Maybe I never heard of him until this month.

"But after he broke me, I talk to my coach".

"He's on fire. He's playing with a lot of confidence and he's very young, so in the future, he will be one of the best", he said.

"And I just try to do it". I continued fighting all the time.

Shapovalov, whose distinctive reverse baseball cap look even spurned the term "the Shapo" on social media, leaves NY with just one regret - that his parents were unable to see him play on the sport's biggest arena.

Carreno Busta has never played either man before. They've been having my back these past couple of months and they've really been carrying me.

Venus Williams will have to win a third set to return to the U.S. Open quarterfinals for the second time in three years.

Pablo Carreno Busta ended Canadian teenager Denis Shapovalov's run in the U.S. Open, winning three tiebreakers Sunday to advance to the quarterfinals.

Shapovalov committed 55 unforced errors, 36 more than in his second-round victory over eighth-seeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. "This whole two weeks, it's another life-changing event for me". "It's a sport. You don't know what's going to happen the next point, so it's always a roller coaster ride". "It was the first time I played singles on this court is unbelievable".

"He stayed very tough mentally in the big points", Shapovalov said. I was up in the first, up in the third. I definitely had my chances. "Very disappointed that I wasn't able to keep my leads".

"But at the end of the day, it's tennis". The packed crowd, which heavily favored Shapovalov, was treated to a competitive two-hour, 54-minute battle. The 6-foot-8 Anderson finally lost serve but managed to overcome a break down in the fourth to close out the Italian debutante.
