MONTREAL — Denis Shapovalov did not go gently into that good night.

The 18-year-old Richmond Hill, Ont., native, who came into the Rogers Cup as the 143rd ranked player in the world and vaulted his way up to No. 67 this week with wins over Rogerio Dutra Silva, Juan Martin del Potro, top-seed Rafael Nadal and Frenchman Adrian Mannarino, gave Germany’s Alexander Zverev a run for his money on Saturday.
