The 18-year-old Canadian showed remarkable speed, skill and a booming serve in his straight-sets upset win over France’s Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the second round. The talented world number 69 reached the semi-finals of the Rogers Cup in Montreal this year scoring back-to-back wins over Spain’s Rafa Nadal and Argentina’s Juan Martin del Potro along the way.
