Nadal ousted by Canadian teenager, Federer through to Montreal QFs

Rafael Nadal and Denis Shapovalov

In Friday's quarterfinals, the second-seeded Federer will face 12th-seeded Roberto Bautista Agut of Spain, who outlasted Frenchman Gael Monfils 4-6, 7-6 (5), 7-6 (2) on center court at Uniprix Stadium.

"At the beginning of the match there were great points", Nadal said.

Nadal looked dominant throughout the match as he hammered his Croatian opponent 6-1, 6-2 in a one-sided opening round clash that lasted for one hour and 11 minutes. Even if he loses Thursday evening, Shapovalov will come out of this week with a career-high ranking in the 125 range. "You can't win every set, every match you play out there".

"But to beat a player of this category, of this talent, is very inspiring for me, a huge confidence boost". When Nadal would start taking a control of a game, the younger of the two lefthanders would respond with big serves or impressive forehands down the lines. The 18-year-old Canadian is gathering momentum on home soil.

Meanwhile, Federer's arch nemeses Rafael Nadal suffered a shock exit later in the day as he went down against unheralded Denis Shapovalov.

Ferrer capitalised by winning the first set to end Federer's streak of 32 consecutive sets won, a record that dates back to his defeat by Tommy Haas at the Stuttgart Open on June 14. He faces Nick Kyrgios next, while the quarterfinals may produce Kevin Anderson or Sam Querrey as a strong opposition. He upset No. 75 Vasek Pospisil of Vancouver in the first round on Monday.

Wentz tosses TD pass in Eagles' preseason opening loss to Packers
Another quiet performer was Evans, the Packers' safety who had been mostly a special teams attribution prior to tonight. After a slow first quarter, Trevor Davis' 68-yard punt return touchdown gave the Packers the lead for good.

"It was just bad luck", he said.

The set went with serve as Federer leveled.

Rafael Nadal will return to the top of the ATP world rankings for the first time in three years if he reaches the semi-finals at this week's Rogers Cup in Montreal.

It didn't help matters that Raonic didn't have a single ace in the first set. "David can play a lot better, too", Federer said. "I'm going to try to make the most of it". "I was rather anxious about how I was going to come out of it". Zverev, who took an injury timeout in the second set to have his right ankle taped, had three match points of his own while serving at 5-4 in the third set. At the 2014 Rogers Cup, he lost 6-2, 6-0. Two games later, it was Gasquet with the match points, but it was Zverev who prevailed, saving one point on a 49-shot exchange.

Three seeded players lost in the afternoon.

In other results, third-seed Dominic Thiem of Austria was upset 6-4, 6-7 (7), 7-5 by Argentina's Diego Schwartzman and American Jared Donaldson beat France's Benoit Paire 6-2, 7-5.
