NEW YORK, Aug 31, 2017 (BSS/AFP) – Canadian 18-year-old qualifier Denis Shapovalov ousted French eighth seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga from the US Open on Wednesday with a 6-4, 6-4, 7-6 (7/3) triumph.

Shapovalov became the youngest man in the third round of a Grand Slam since Aussie Bernard Tomic at the 2011 Australian Open and at the US Open since American Donald Young in 2007.

Next up for Shapovalov will be Britain’s Kyle Edmund.
