Denis Shapovalov ( SHAH-pə-VAH-ləv, -ləf; Hebrew: דניס שפובלוב‎; Russian: Денис Викторович Шаповалов [ʂəpɐˈvaɫəf]; born April 15, 1999) is a Canadian professional tennis player. He is currently the youngest player in the top 100 of the ATP rankings, and was the youngest to crack the top 30 since 2005. His career-high ATP singles ranking is No. 23 in the world.

Shapovalov rose to prominence by reaching a Masters semifinal at the 2017 Canadian Open as an 18-year old, beating grand slam champions Juan Martín del Potro and Rafael Nadal during his run. He has since reached another Masters semifinal at the 2018 Madrid Open and became the top-ranked Canadian on May 21st as part of his ongoing climb in the ATP rankings.

As a junior, Shapovalov reached a career-high ITF junior ranking of No. 2 behind a Wimbledon grand slam singles title in 2016, and a US Open grand slam doubles title with compatriot Félix Auger-Aliassime in 2015.

🇬🇷 with the fam

What a year... so many great memories, experiences and moments. My first full year on the tour and I have learned so much. I feel so blessed to have such a strong fan base supporting me throughout the year. Couldn’t do it without you. I couldn’t imagine being in the position I am today at 19 years old. This being said, I am super motivated to get back to work this off season so I can keep climbing in 2019. I want to thank my team for their efforts in always keeping me in shape both physically and mentally, especially in the moments when I needed it the most. Top 30 in the world and I’m ready to work to go even further next year. Once again, I truly appreciate the love and support I’ve been getting from fans all around the world. You guys make me want to come back for many years to come ❤️. See you in 2019☺️ #DontStopFighting

Thank you @sthlmopen. Such an amazing tournament to be a part of. See you next time 💪

It was a dream come true to be back here in @couperogers. Never experienced such love and such a warm welcome before. I did everything I could yesterday and unfortunately it wasn’t enough this time around. I just want to thank every single fan for their love and support, you’ve helped me remember why I love to play this game so much. You helped me remember that this life isn’t a job but is a blessing. I’ll keep on fighting for myself, my team and my fans. Thank you guys so much. And lastly, Just want to wish @domithiem the best of luck. Was fun to be on the court with you my man 💪🏼🙏🏼 ...
