Shapovalov leads Carreno Busta 3-2 Shapovalov responds to a first break point against him with an ace. You can’t teach that sort of timing. He is already hitting some punishing forehands, and a couple more ensure another hold.
Carreno Busta has just saved a couple of break points in his first service game, so it’s 1-1 in the first set. Shapovalov has started with a swagger.
The players are on court. Pablo Carreno Busta is having his right wrist strapped, though he didn’t seem remotely alarmed about that fact. Shapovalov will serve first.

Hi there. Nothing in sport is quite as exhilarating as the emergence of a brilliant young talent. Even when those players go on to achieve greatness, they are rarely as thrilling to watch as when they first emerge. That’s logical enough, because nothing hits the G-spot of our imagination as consistently as a combination of novelty and infinite potential. Think Scorsese’s Mean Streets, Ronaldo, Mike Tyson, Michael van Gerwen, The Strokes’ Is This It – and maybe, just maybe, Denis Shapovalov.
His emergence in the last month is even more exciting because men’s tennis has been waiting the best part of a decade for a new superstar. Shapovalov, a Canadian who was born in Israel and lives in the Bahamas, has already taken care of Jo-Wilfred Tsonga in straight sets and today he plays the 12th seed, Pablo Carreno Busta in the last 16.
All bets are off in their half of the draw, with Tsonga, Marin Cilic, Alexander Zverev and John Isner all gone. Carreno Busta is the highest seed left in that section, with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal in the top half.
The Shapovalov/Busta match is followed on Arthur Ashe by a cracker between Maria Sharapova and Anastasija Sevastova, and there’s much else to get excited about.
