Shapovalov was set to face Great Britain's Kyle Edmund in Round 1 of the Australian tournament, when, well, see if you can find the point where the public address announcer gives up during the introductions.

The Canadian entered Brisbane ranked 51st in the world after a breakthrough 2017 campaign that saw the lefty make the semifinals of the Rogers Cup in Montreal and the fourth round of the U.S. Open.
