Set 1: 9 or 10 Games
Denis played 9 or 10 games in 66% of the sets he played in the previous round. The same thing happened in 80% of Liam’s sets in his last match.
They both won their last three sets 6-3 or 6-4. Based on this information, I think the first set will end similarly.
Over 37.5 Total Games
Shapovalov’s most recent match, which lasted 32 games, ended in straight sets. The vast majority of forecasts suggest that this match will last at least four sets.
Broady recently completed a duel of 44 games. It wouldn’t be shocking if this match lasted more than 37.5 games. The Canadian tennis player has 70 games after two rounds, while the British player has 72.
Denis Shapovalov vs Liam Broady Preview
To set the right bets, view each player’s preview before looking at other tennis match predictions.
Denis struggled on grass courts last season. He only won one match despite competing in four tournaments.
His situation is similar this year, and he has only recently improved his average with two triumphs at Wimbledon 2023. The first was against Radu Albot, while the second was in straight sets against Gregoire Barrera.
Despite a disappointing beginning to the grass-court season, the British tennis player has played his first two Wimbledon 2023 matches in a spectacular way. He impressed in the first round, defeating Constant Lestienne in straight sets.
The finest came in his match against Norwegian Casper Ruud, who was two sets to one down at the time. Nobody anticipated Liam Broady to win the fourth and fifth sets.
Shapovalov vs Broady Head to Head
These two tennis players have met more frequently than one might expect. They had previously met four times, with the most recent three clashes occurring in 2017.
Shapovalov was still a teenager at the time, and he lost his first two hard court matches. Following that, they met twice on grass court, with the Canadian player winning both times, tying the series.
04/06/17 – Shapovalov beat Broadly 6-4 6-4 (Aegon Championship, grass)
18/06/17 – Shapovalov beat Broadly 7-5 2-6 6-3 (Surbiton Challenger, grass)
