TORONTO – Canadian Denis Shapovalov was ousted from the Rogers Cup on Thursday night, falling 7-5, 6-2 to Robin Haase of the Netherlands in third-round action.

Shapovalov, the highest-ranked Canadian in the men’s singles draw at No. 26, had trouble with his serve throughout the match on centre court, which lasted just one hour 16 minutes.

The 19-year-old was broken four times and had six double faults, including four in the first set.

Shapovalov started the first set strong, winning the first game then setting up triple break point on Haase, but the No. 39-ranked player bounced back to hold serve.

Two breaks of serve put Shapovalov down 6-5 and Haase easily held serve for the 7-5 win, handing the Canadian his first dropped set of the tournament.

Haase came out firing in the second set, breaking Shapovalov for an early 4-1 lead, and the teenager couldn’t recover from there.
