Marin Cilic suffered a shock US Open exit to Diego Schwartzman

Shapovalov needed to go through three qualifying matches just to get into the main draw at Flushing Meadows, so he has played a half-dozen times in an 11-day span.

The 26-year-old has progressed past the third round of the U.S. Open for the first time, as he targets a first grand slam title. The five-time U.S. Open champion plays his third-round match against No. 31 Feliciano Lopez, who has beaten in all 12 meetings. "I saw and heard something was up just before he called the trainer (in the third set) but I'm just happy to be in the (fourth) round". I didn't do many mistakes.

"Schwartzman, who is listed at just 5'6", stood tall in front of a predominantly pro-Cilic crowd, setting up 20 break points on the big serve of Cilic, converting on nine of them, while saving 14 break points of his own to pull off the upset.

"I'd love to see where we'd stand today", he said.

"The last game was awful", Schwartzman said. Maria Sharapova then continued her successful return to Grand Slam tennis by beating 139th-ranked US wild-card entry Sofia Kenin 7-5, 6-2 to reach the fourth round.

Not much later, Shapovalov advanced when Kyle Edmund of Britain stopped playing in the fourth set because of an injured neck.

Frenchman Lucas Pouille, the 16th seed, moved on with a 2-6, 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 victory over Russia's Mikhail Kukushkin. Also advancing were Venus Williams and Sloane Stephens, who is coming back from left foot surgery in January and is back in the fourth round in NY for the first time since 2013.

"I think my confidence, it's going up".

"I remember the kid's forehand was insane, so I tried to hit every single ball to the guy's backhand", recalled Wilson, now 22.

The 25-year-old was born in the Buenos Aires, and in an interview earlier this year, revealed that while he didn't attend a Hebrew school in the Argentine capital, he does observe Jewish holidays and receives great support from the Jewish population in his hometown, "I am Jewish and in Argentina, we have many Jewish [people] there, and all the people there know me", he said. He'll be bidding for a place in the quarter-finals later on Sunday, with the match scheduled to be second on the Grandstand Court.
