Briton Edmund was appearing in his first Masters 1,000 quarter-final and will break into the world's top 20 for the first time on Monday.Shapovalov, ranked 43rd, is regarded as one of the best young players in the world and hit 29 winners to Edmund's 19 in a tight match.Edmund broke serve in the first game of the opening set but Shapovalov levelled and crucially broke serve again when 6-5 in front as Edmund failed to serve to stay in the set.Edmund was involved in a heated exchange with the umpire late in the second set when he seemed to stop when a spectator shouted out during Shapovalov's service motion, but the Canadian's ace was allowed to stand.Serving to stay in the match at 6-5 down in the following game, Edmund started with two double faults but held serve after saving a match point, and took the set on a tie-break moments later.The decider was another tight set but Shapovalov's break of serve in the third game proved crucial.He will play American John Isner or German Alexander Zverev in the semi-final.
