The fourth day of the French Open is almost upon us, and I’ve got more tennis predictions today for the men’s singles event coming right up. This time out, I’ve covered Shapovalov vs Tiafoe in what should be a very flashy match indeed. As for my tips, they are all outlined within.

Our favourite Denis Shapovalov vs Frances Tiafoe predictions

Neither of these guys has been killing it on the clay court scene this year. However, both guys have the potential to produce some serious tennis, which makes this one a very intriguing game. It’s Tiafoe who is ranked much higher than Shapovalov coming into this one, but will the rankings produce the result that many expect?

Take a look at my predictions right here for the answer:

Shapovalov to win @ 8/15 (1.53)

Based on the way these guys performed in their French Open first round, I’m going for Shapovalov to get the win here. Additionally, he has the edge in the head to head department over Tiafoe, with 4 wins compared to 2 for Tiafoe.

Shapovalov -2.5 games handicap @ 3/4 (1.75)

Assuming Shapovalov is to win this game, I feel it makes sense to cover him for a -2.5 games handicap too. Over the course of a best-of-five set match, the chances of such a market pulling through are very high – assuming the Canadian gets the win.

Denis Shapovalov vs Frances Tiafoe odds

Looking at the latest odds for this game, Shapovalov has a 65.20% chance of winning this game whereas the probability for Tiafoe is 42.10%. 

Prepare for a flashy battle involving Shapovalov and Tiafoe at Roland Garros

This match has two of the most entertaining guys in the French Open draw going up against one another. However, let me tell you a bit more about each player before the game begins.

Denis Shapovalov preview

Shapovalov gained a main draw entry in Roland Garros thanks to a protected ranking status. This shows that he has battled with injuries in recent times and he has struggled to get back to where he was before. But I must say, he produced an impressive performance to take out Van Assche in straight sets in round one, which will give him confidence coming into this game.

Frances Tiafoe preview

Tiafoe is one of the most talented players on the ATP Tour. When he brings his A-game, he can beat just about anyone. But for some reason, his 2024 season has been far short of where he has previously been. He has struggled to put together back-to-back wins, and following a five-set battle to reach round two, he might be feeling it physically.

Shapovalov vs Tiafoe head to head

The head to head between Shapovalov and Tiafoe currently stands in favour of the Canadian. He has a 4-2 lead over Tiafoe, and he will be eager to notch up his 5th win over the American in this second-round match.
