In a burgeoning rivalry between best-bud young Canadians, Felix Auger-Aliassime beat Denis Shapovalov 6-2, 7-6(7).

Auger-Aliassime led with an early break in the second before the 20-year-old Shapovalov clawed back, but errors cost the left in the end.

The 18-year-old Auger-Aliassime will now meet the King of Clay Rafael Nadal.

There was just one other main draw match played in the men’s draw, and Nick Kyrgios fell to Jan-Lennard Struff 7-6(4), 6-4. Kyrgios came on the court wearing a backpack containing just two racquets, one of which he smashed during a match he didn’t seem engaged in at all.

The first round continues Monday with play from Grigor Dimitrov, Fernando Verdasco, Gael Monfils and Karen Khachanov who meets Jaume Munar.
