Denis Shapovalov vs Stefanos Tsitsipas – Match Predictions

Under 21.5 Games

Shapovalov will be looking to improve on his inconsistent performances this year and try to defeat Tsitsipas, who has been one of the most consistent and dominant players on the tour. While Shapovalov has a 5-1 winning balance against Tsitsipas, his only loss came on a clay court and the Greek is on song at the moment. The duo were clinical in their last outings, both seeing their games finish with Under 20.5 games. Based on this, we are anticipating an early finish to this duel and are predicting Under 21.5 games that gives a nice payout and is also much more secure.

2-0 to Stefanos Tsitsipas

It has been testing times for Shapovalov and they are going to get worse in the aftermath of this duel. Tsitspias is taking no prisoners and it was the case in his dismantling of Pedro Cachin. He was sublime on his serve, not accruing a single breakpoint. On the other hand, he broke the Argentine’s serve on the three opportunities that presented themselves. Shapovalov was fortunate to save all six of the breakpoints against the 155-ranked Kovalik and his luck seems to have run out against the Greek.

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

Denis Shapovalov

Canadian tennis player Denis Shapovalov won his first match in the ATP Barcelona tournament against Jozef Kovalik. Shapovalov appeared rusty at the start of the match, but Kovalik’s failure to take advantage of his opportunities led to a straight-set victory for Shapovalov.

The Canadian’s performances have been inconsistent this year, losing to opponents he was expected to beat and struggling against favoured players. He has not won a match against a top-5 player in his last four attempts and his last victory against such a player was at the Rome Masters last year when he defeated Rafael Nadal.

Stefanos Tsitsipas

Greek tennis player Stefanos Tsitsipas won his second-round match against Pedro Cachin at the ATP Barcelona tournament, advancing to the round of 16 for the fifth consecutive time. He managed to do this without facing a single breakpoint and will be confident of his abilities against Shapovalov.

Tsitsipas has a good record in this tournament but was stopped twice by Rafael Nadal in his bid to win the ATP 500 title. Tsitsipas has been struggling with a shoulder problem that affected his performance in recent tournaments, despite claiming that he has fully recovered.
