Rafael Nadal and Denis Shapovalov

Rafael Nadal fell to a shock defeat by 18-year-old Canadian Denis Shapovalov 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.
