It was a week of highs for Denis Shapovalov; he got to his first semifinals of an ATP Tour event, which just happened to be a Masters 1000 event, Coupe Rogers. If that was not impressive enough, he knocked out the number two ranked player on Tour, Rafael Nadal, en route to accomplishing this feat. That was his first top ten victory. He was finally stopped by the eventually champion, Alexander Zverev. This kid is explosive, watch out for him once he learns to harness his power more effectively and construct points better. With his impressive run last week he has bolted up the rankings to a career high and gotten direct entry into the final major, the US Open, of the season; let’s see how far he can go.
