It's the end of the line for Canadian Brayden Schnur at the Rogers Cup, but it appears as though the 19-year-old has a pretty solid future ahead of him.

Schnur, a Pickering, Ont. native, was eliminated from the Masters 1000 tournament on Tuesday following a 6-3, 6-3 defeat to the more experienced Andreas Seppi of Italy in the first round.

Schnur, 612th on the ATP World Tour rankings compared to Seppi's spot at 51st, was competing in his first ATP event.

"He was just a little bit better than me at everything," said Schnur, who upset two higher-ranked opponents in weekend qualifying to reach the main draw. "He took away my serve. He just did the little things well."

Schnur said he'll now turn his attention to an upcoming Challenger event in Calgary, and after that, his studies.
