Shapovalov Eliminated From U.S. Open
Canada's Denis Shapovalov struggled with mental errors but pushed 12th seed Pablo Carreno Busta of Spain to three tiebreaks in a 7-6, 7-6, 7-6 loss on Sunday in the fourth round of the U.S. Open.
Shapovalov's inability to find his forehand and reliance on second serves were his undoing in the two hour 54 minute match at Arthur Ashe Stadium.
The 18-year old from Richmond Hill was hoping to become the youngest U.S. Open quarterfinalist since Andre Agassi in 1988, when he was also 18.
Shapovalov had eight aces to Carreno Busta's one, but the younger player also had 55 errors to the Spaniard's 25.
