South Africa’s Lloyd Harris is through to the fourth round of the US Open after beating Denis Shapovalov on Saturday night. 

The 24-yar-old from Cape Town is enjoying a dream run at the final major of the year and he has never gone this far in a grand slam before. 

Canadian Shapovalov, the 7th-seed seed at the tournament, entered the match as the overwhelming favourite but Harris was in superb touch when it mattered most to win in straight sets – 6-4, 6-4, 6-4

He will now take on No. 22-seed Reilly Opelka in the round of 16 on Monday. 

Harris currently ranked 46th in the world.
