Shapovalov stunners baffle Sugita in Basel win

Shapovalov defeated Yuichi Sugita, 4-6 6-2 7-2 (3) in the opening round at the Swiss Indoor Basel in Switzerland.

Since his improbable run at the Rogers Cup and the US Open, success hasn't followed Denis Shapovalov.

After Sugita claimed the opening set, Shapovalov started finding form, breaking twice to win the second set and square the match at a set each.

The 18-year-old won 76 per cent of his first-service points and converted on 3-of-5 break points.

From there, Shapovalov's offensive prowess took over the match.

In the first set, Sugita jumped out to a 4-2 lead against Shapovalov. He won the second set easily, holding his opponent to two games, in a set that included two breaks by Shapovalov.

Shapovalov ended the match with 13 aces and was able to overcome his early match deficit.

Shapovalov will next face either Belgian Ruben Bemelmans or seventh seed Adrian Mannarino of France.

The youngster, who is seeking a spot in next month's ATP NextGen Finals in Milan, turned the tables as he lifted his level in a hard-hitting battle with a world No.38 opponent who claimed his first career title this season in Turkey.
