Easy for top seed in Bogota

‘This is completely ridiculous!’ shouts Shapovalov after lashing out over umpire decision

The world No 27 needed less than an hour to see off American Louisa Chirico 6-2 6-1 and, at one stage, reeled off eight games in a row.

The 20-year-old from Ukraine has spent the past two weeks training in high altitude ahead of this clay court event.

Her 18-year-old opponent – the world No 141 – did not help her cause by sending down six double faults.

In another match on Monday, two-time champion Lourdes Dom??nguez Lino of Spain beat the No 6 seed Shelby Rogers 6-3 6-2.

After making an early break, the American lost 11 of the last 14 games.
