Carreno Busta defeats Shapovalov to advance to US Open quarters

"Now I'm in the quarter-finals again of a Grand Slam, first time here in US Open, and will try to continue".

The ninth-seeded Williams won the first set 6-3 but Carla Suarez Navarro of Spain took the second set by the same score.

Shapovalov broke Carreno Busta when the Spaniard served for the second, but the 12th seed again won the tie-break.

Schwartzman, the 29th seed, topped 16th-seeded Frenchman Lucas Pouille 7-6 (3), 7-5, 2-6, 6-2 to advance to the first Grand Slam quarterfinal of his career. Pablo consolidated the mini-break to lead 3-0 in points.

"It's fantastic", Carreno Busta said in his on-court post-match interview with ESPN's Darren Cahill. I can not describe it. The next (point) was crucial both ways and it was fought in a long rally that ended in favour of the Spaniard. You never know when your opponent will doubt a little bit or make a mistake. "I was focused on my game and I got through".

"It was so loud, and it was a great moment for me", Shapovalov said.

"In the tiebreaks I played ideal". It's going to happen. "I felt comfortable three minutes into the match, and that was the key". "He stayed very tough mentally on the big points".

"I think I have definitely helped to do that, and hopefully, you know, I can keep doing it". It really has a special place in my heart, and, you know, now NY for sure, it will always have a special place for me.

The one thing he is still working on is what a young Andre Agassi wrote in his autobiography that he had to learn early in his career: being patient and waiting for the right moments to pull the trigger on those weapons. "Hopefully in the future I can make some more runs and hopefully in the future, lift up a cup".

"It was incredible", said Carreno Busta.

He responded impressively, though, fighting back to force another tie break, amid growing support from the Arthur Ashe crowd.

"It's unbelievable. It was the first time I played singles on this court", Carreno Busta said in a post-match interview. The affable teenager is a marketer's dream, and there's no doubt that his people have already been contacted by the corporations, organizers and hangers-on that make elite young athletes very rich, and their time very coveted.

"I'm just playing every match with the belief I have within myself", he said.

"But after, when he broke me, I talk to my coach".

"There's going to be a lot of tough weeks ahead and I'm ready for that as well".

"He's playing with a lot of confidence, and he's very young, so in the future, he will be one of the best", Carreno Busta said. And I just tried to do it.

"And then in the tiebreaks, I just play flawless".

But he was quick to confirm the obvious, that he had plenty of chances leading up to those tiebreakers, and that Carreno Busta's steady play had done him in.

Missing the shot at a double break proved costly for the teen, as his good form deserted him in the next game, missing a backhand to set up break point and double faulting to put the set back on serve. He is the first man to face four qualifiers in a row in a Grand Slam event, but today's opponent is no ordinary qualifier.
