Shapovalov next faces 12th seed Pablo Carreno Busta, who finds himself in the unprecedented position of taking on four successive qualifiers.

Pouille, a quarter-finalist last year, came from a set down to defeat Mikhail Kukushkin 2-6 6-3 6-4 6-4 while a name all the players will be wary of is 18-year-old Denis Shapovalov. "I got this, '" Shapovalov recounted with a smile.

"It's never good to win this way", Shapovalov said afterward. Along with Murray's long-term injuries, fourth-ranked Stan Wawrinka, fifth-ranked Novak Djokovic and 10th-ranked Kei Nishikori have all shut down the remainder of their seasons.

"I feel like you don't just have five guys injured".

"I noticed a couple of guys had a little bit too much to drink".

"It's kind of a transition time for the ATP", Shapovalov said, "but I think there is a lot of talent coming up".

But he negotiated three rounds and three more in the main draw with a second round victory over French eighth seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga the headline grabber as he demonstrated that he had the consistency to back-up his breakthrough tournament.

World number one Rafael Nadal, all-time Grand Slam victor Roger Federer, Austrian Dominic Thiem and Belgium's David Goffin are the only players ranked in the top 10 that remain in NY.

He said: "I hope maybe they can understand tennis is for everyone".

But as he has on several occasions already this year, the 18-year-old Canadian stayed loose under pressure and it paid off.

Shapovalov has not yet title of the Grand Slam, or even ATP tournament to his name, but he was successful early wailers on the circuit-and especially in the month of August with impressive quarter-final in the Masters 1000 of Montreal and an 8th finals in NY from his second tournament of the Grand Slam.

Against Edmund, Shapovalov showed the same poise he displayed against Tsonga.

With a decimated bottom of the men's draw, it is now open for Shapovalov to make his way deep and open eyes as he does so.

"It all happened very quickly, in fact: my goal in the beginning of the season was to finish in 2017 to be in the top 150 and now I can aim at the top 50 in the world", said the victor of the junior tournaments at Wimbledon in 2016.

"Every win that I've been going through, it's been securing anyone's doubts or even my own doubts about whether I belong with these guys, playing these high-level tournaments", said Shapovalov, who beat Russia's Daniil Medvedev in the first round. "I think we are trying to take the chances and try to go forward in the tournament".
