Shapovalov is currently ranked 10th in the world and becomes the second Canadian behind Milos Raonic to reach the top 10. As TSN’s Mark Masters notes, the 21-year-old becomes the youngest Canadian to achieve the feat on the men’s circuit. . .
Bianca Andreescu (No.4), Eugenie Bouchard (No.5) and Carling Bassett-Seguso (No.8) have all done it on the women’s side.
Shapovalov fell in a five-set marathon against Spain’s Pablo Carreno Busta in the US Open quarterfinals before facing off against Argentina’s Diego Schwartzman in an equally dramatic three-set match in the semi-final of the ‘Italian Open Sunday.
Next up is the French Open which kicks off later this week from Roland Garros in Paris.
