No. 5 Marin Cilic, No. 10 John Isner ousted in third round

Shock Cilic exit ensures there’ll be new Grand Slam finalist at the US Open

It can't really be the case that 18-year-olds like yourself never get exhausted, right?

The teenager is the youngest man to reach the fourth round of a grand slam in almost 20 years and looks to be heading quickly for the top of the game.

The 18-year-old left-hander from Richmond Hill, Ont., was leading 3-6, 6-3, 6-3, 1-0 before Edmund called it quits.

"It's been a long ride", said Shapovalov, who was born in Israel to Russian parents and moved to Canada as a baby. "I didn't feel like I could rotate properly".

Fourth seed Alexander Zverev was one of the favourites to win the US Open title before the tournament started, but it's his brother Mischa who has outlasted him at a Major for the second time in the year.

Fifth seed Cilic, who won the event in 2014, made a host of errors before eventually succumbing to world number 33 Diego Schwartzman, losing 4-6 7-5 7-5 6-4. Many young players are playing incredible tennis.

Tory MPs tell Theresa May she can't go 'on and on'
But Tory critics said it would be hard for her to continue after the election this year which saw her lose her majority. Almost half of those surveyed say she is "bluffing", against fewer than one in five who believe her.

"It's never great to win this way", Shapovalov told ESPN on the court at Arthur Ashe Stadium. "Hopefully it's nothing too serious", said Shapovalov.

Schwartzman is into the fourth round at a major for the first time.

With no other players in the top 10 left in the bottom half of the draw, his next opponent, 16th seeded Frenchman Lucas Pouille, is the highest ranking player left he would have to face on his route to the final. There is every chance that Schwartzman be could the surprise package. "This is the moment to take advantage".

"I think many players are doing well this week, and they are taking the opportunities because many players are injured this week". Denis Shapovalov of Canada defeated Rafael Nadal of Spain 6-3, 4-6, 6-7.

But he has a chance to make a name for himself for the right reasons, with Pablo Carreno Busta awaiting him in the fourth round after the Spaniard's 6-3 6-4 6-3 victory over Nicolas Mahut. Carreno Busta will be the first man at any Grand Slam tournament in the Open era, which began in 1968, to face four qualifiers.

No. 17 seed Sam Querrey needed four sets to beat qualifier Radu Albot of Moldova 4-6, 6-2, 6-4, 6-4. "When I served 5-2, I think he played much better than me".

Shapovalov was one of two teenagers through to the third round along with Russia's Andrey Rublev, who takes on Damir Dzumhur on Saturday.

Standing at only 5ft 7in does mean he's perceived to be at a disadvantage, though he says: "Sometimes it's helping a lot if you are big, because you can serve fast, you can do everything fast on the baseline because you have more, the arms are bigger than me".

"The month of August has been absolutely life changing for me", says the Canadian. He also plays wearing a baseball cap with its band tightened to an extreme degree, drawing plenty of attention on social media.

What does he say about being an inspiration to shorter people: "I hope maybe they can understand tennis is for everyone".

"Then in the fourth I started to be a little bit nervous".
