Ugo Humbert vs Denis Shapovalov – Match Predictions

We recommend that you read our tennis predictions and tips for Friday’s clashes at the Indian Wells Open. Read in more detail about why we suggest backing the two bets in the Humbert vs Shapovalov game below.

Total Sets – 3

Of the four previous games between Humbert and Shapovalov, two of them have gone to three sets and we expect this to be another well contested match between the pair. The first set in the last three games have seen two tie-breaks and one score of 7-5 and it would be a big surprise if either player was able to complete a two set victory.

Either Player to Lose The First Set And Win The Match – Yes

Denis Shapovalov has twice come from a set down to beat Ugo Humbert and we are not ruling out the same happening again at Indian Wells on Friday. Humbert won their last meeting on a hard court but again it was a very tight contest 7-5, 6-4. We do not think that the first set will decide this match.
