Throughout the set, the Canadian curled his slider serve out wide on the ad side repeatedly tormenting Carreno Busta, who failed to move left and cover it. Shapovalov whipped the wide serve effectively backing up the break in the seventh game.

Spanish, 12th-seeded of the competition, won 7-6 (2), 7-6 (4), 7-6 (3). After going 0-40 down Carreno Busta saved the first two break points, the second of them with an inside-out forehand victor at the end of a pulsating 21-stroke rally, before Shapovalov converted the third with a smash.

"It's wonderful", Carreno Busta said in his on-court post-match interview with ESPN's Darren Cahill. "I can't describe it". Every point was important for me. You never know when your opponent will doubt a little bit or make a mistake. "I just tried to focus and continue".

"I think I had a lot of chances", said Shapovalov.

The lower half of the Men's Draw is deplete of many top seeds while the first and third seeds march on for a possible semifinal clash.
