Denis Shapovalav became the first Canadian to reach the Men’s Quarterfinal at the US Open on Sunday night. Denis is not only good but he’s extremely entertaing to watch. He has an electric serve and tries going with power every time. He beat number 7 overall in the world last night David Goffin in four sets. After the match Denis earned some brownie points by thanking his girlfriend Mirjam Bjorklund for his recent success. It’s always a safe bet that your girlfriend is going to be happy if you give her credit on national tv. Smart move.
