Shapovalov skid continues

Meanwhile, Canada's Denis Shapovalov's losing streak continued as he dropped a 6-4, 6-1 decision to Benjamin Bonzi of France at the Mallorca Championships.

Shapovalov has lost openers in five straight tournaments (Mallorca, London, Stuttgart, Paris and Geneva).

Bonzi, the world No. 56, needed just 67 minutes to complete the victory. Shapovalov, from Richmond Hill, Ont., double-faulted six times and had 19 unforced errors to just six for his opponent.

Shapovalov's last victory came almost six weeks ago when he beat Spain's Rafael Nadal in the round of 16 at the Rome Masters.
