Denis Shapovalov vs Marton Fucsovics – Match Predictions

Denis Shapovalov to Win

The upcoming clash between Shapovalov and Fucsovics promises to be an intense battle on the Stuttgart Open court. While their head-to-head record stands at one win each, Shapovalov’s recent performances suggest he has the edge going into this match. Despite his fluctuating form in 2023, Shapovalov has showcased his potential this year, battling to win while dropping sets. Fucsovics will fancy his chances but the Canadian’s powerful shots should give him the momentum to secure a hard-fought 2-1 victory.

2-1 to Denis Shapovalov

Before his straight-sets defeat to Carlos Alcaraz at the French Open, Shapovalov’s two wins tested him. He triumphed 3-2 against Brandon Nakashima and 3-1 against Matteo Arnaldi. His last win over Fucsovics also saw extra time played as he came back from a set disadvantage to triumph 6-4, 4-6 and 5-7. While he is not playing at his best, Shapovalov has the ability to get past his Hungarian rival. It will not be easy given Fucsovics straight-sets victories in the qualifying campaign, therefore we expect a 2-1 victory for Shapovalov.

Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in the Stuttgart Open.

Denis Shapovalov

The Canadian’s form in 2023 has been inconsistent seeing him slide to 29 in rankings. He started the year with a quarterfinal appearance in Adelaide against Djokovic, showing glimpses of his potential. However, he has since struggled with form issues, experiencing ups and downs in his performances. In the recently concluded Roland-Garros, he faced a tough challenge against Carlos Alcaraz in Round 3 and bowed out as a result.

Marton Fucsovics

The 31-year-old has made it to the main round of the Stuttgart Open, defeating his qualifying rivals in straight sets. This came on the back of a second-round defeat to Djokovic at Roland Garros. Despite not seeing massive improvements in his rankings, Fucsovics will be pleased with his outings in 2023. At Indian Wells, he reached the fourth round and a third-round placement in both Munich Open and Rome Masters.
