Denis Shapovalov cruises as Federico Delbonis upsets Ryan Harrison
Denis Shapovalov is safely into the second round in Indian Wells, but Ryan Harrison crashed out.
Canadian teenager Shapovalov had too much in his locker for qualifier Ricardas Berankis as he won 6-3, 6-4 in one hour and 13 minutes.
The 18-year-old broke once in the opening set and twice in the second, but Berankis also claimed a service break in the second set.
This. Point. Had. Everything.
