Canadian Denis Shapovalov became the youngest man to beat a top-two player since the 17-year-old Nadal beat Federer in 2004 as he defeated Rafael Nadal at the Rogers Cup in Montreal.

Wildcard Shapovalov came from a set down to beat top seed Nadal 3-6 6-4 7-6 (6-4) and become the youngest player to reach a Masters 1000 quarter-final.

Nadal’s loss means Andy Murray remains world number one, but only until next week’s Cincinnati Masters, where Nadal or Roger Federer will replace him.

The 18-year old had sweet words for the world No.2 despite beating him.

“He’s honestly the best player I’ve ever played in my life,”

Well,Shapovalov wait till you face Roger Federer.
