Thanks to an incredible showing at the Rogers Cup, Denis Shapovalov climbed up the ATP rankings in a big way.

The 18-year old Canadian, who managed to upset del Potro and Nadal in his run to the Rogers Cup semi-final, rocketed from 143rd to 67th in ATP rankings. His unexpected performance netted him a total of US$220,760 in prize money, which makes up 63% of his earnings this year.

“Whole life has changed in the past five days.” said Shapovalov.

“I don’t even think I realize it yet…I mean, it’s a huge jump (in the rankings).”

Shapovalov has decided to skip the Vancouver Open in order to prepare for the U.S. Open, which takes place at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York City from August 28 – September 10.
