The same, however, can not be said for Jack Sock.

Haase won his quarter-final 6-4, 6-4 against Germany's Peter Gojowczyk who had beaten the top-seed and reigning champion Jack Sock the previous day.

The oft-injured world No.12 will go on to face Bautista Agut, who did it the hard way against semi-final foe Robin Haase by winning 6-7 (7-9) 7-6 (7-3) 7-6 (7-5).

Third seed Sam Querrey and fourth seed John Isner were also eliminated at the first hurdle, losing to Jiri Vesely and Hyeon Chung respectively.

"Today was a very tough match, I don't know how my body will be tomorrow, but now I want to enjoy the win and we'll see", Bautista Agut said.

In preparation for the Australian Open, starting January 15, Del Potro proved just too strong for the Canadian and won 6-2, 6-4.

"I'm very focused to reach the final here".

The second-seeded del Potro will aim for his first Classic title since 2009, while the 29-year-old Bautista Agut will seek his second crown in three years.

The oft-injured ex-US Open victor thrashed eight aces and flummoxed Shapovalov with a number of vicious forehands, cruising to a 65-minute victory.

After dropping serve in the fifth game of the first set, Gojowczyk broke Sock in the sixth and eighth games to take the set in 32 minutes.

He brushed off suggestions of indifference post-match.

"It's still a long way for me to get to where I want to be, so it's going to be a lot of work, it's not just going to happen", Shapovalov said.

Elsewhere, Spaniards Roberto Bautista Agut and David Ferrer progressed without trouble against Steve Johnson and Joao Sousa respectively.
