An homage to Lleyton Hewitt, whom he resembles in so many ways?

"It's just really to see how it goes this week, and then learn from this week, how I need to then play in Cincinnati (next week) and the U.S. Open".

Ferrer took the first set 6-4 against world number three, who had not dropped a set since his shock defeat to Tommy Haas at the Mercedes Cup in June.

His tenacity and his persistence have been reported in the tiebreaker as he filled a setback of 0-3.

"Even though I lost, this is one of the most memorable experiences of my life along with the match I played against him in Toronto", said Polansky.

Frustration boiled over for the Australian Open and Wimbledon champion in the second set after he misfired with an overhead smash.

Nadal was relatively comfortable on serve as Shapovalov provided plenty of highlights on his racquet - the emerging talent hitting back-to-back jaw-dropping winners. But to beat a player of this category, of this talent, it's very inspiring and a huge confidence boost... Not long after the match was gone as Federer raced to a 6-2 6-1 victory.

Federer will face another Spaniard in the quarterfinals, Roberto Bautista Agut who defeated Frenchman Gael Monfils 4-6, 7-6 (5), 7-6 (2). His lefty serve was effective against his fellow southpaw, brutally so at times.

"No. He has nothing to lose".

North America has a late challenge from North Africa in the contest to host the 2026 World Cup. But that's like this.

Shapovalov blasted a total of nine aces. Instead of waiting to be rescued, he pulled himself out hand-over-hand. "When you play bad, you have to win these matches". "At the same time because of the opportunity I had to get back to number one". "But it was just pure happiness". You can't win every set, every match you play out there.

Some people are calling it the biggest victory in Canadian tennis history.

In his first two trips to the service Ferrer has allowed just one point, while he was given seven chances to break in first two attempts of his illustrious rival.

"I wish him the best", Nadal told reporters after the match.

"I'm happy, as I knew I would have to play a lot of rallies", Bautista Agut said. Federer, 36, had never lost in 16 previous meetings with the 35-year-old Ferrer and the trend continued Thursday. If anything, it shows that tennis can still grow in terms of strategy and ability-and that even the best can be beaten.

"It was extremely hard physically and mentally", he added. His relentlessness and power were on display throughout the evening.
