Denis Shapovalov v Jan-Lennard Struff Damir Dzumhur Head to Head

This will be the second meeting between the pair, but the first on clay. Their previous encounter came in the quarter-final of Tokyo last year played on hard courts, which the Canadian won in a tight three-setter.

Shapovalov, Teenager Breaking into World’s Top 20

Shapovalov, like his teenage compatriot Felix Auger-Alissime has helped put Canadian male tennis on the map, whilst Bianca Andreescu has been doing something similar for the women’s game. Both men made the semi-finals of the Miami Masters, a run which, in the case of Shapovalov, saw him reach a career high ranking of twenty.

Known more as a hard court player, he actually has a decent record on clay, and reached the semi-finals of the Madrid Masters last year, and the third round in Rome.

However, he went out in the first round here, and lost in the second round of Roland-Garros so he knows that it will not be easy to progress this week. There’s also a small matter of an inexperienced Shapovalov losing all four matches he played on clay in 2017.

Struff, Indian Wells Conqueror of Zverev

The world number 45’s best result of the year came in Indian Wells where he defeated his compatriot Alexander Zverev in  straight sets.

His greatest successes in recent years have come on the doubles court, with three finals and two wins on the senior ATP tour with partner Ben McLachlan, winning in Japan last year and Auckland in early 2019, and going down in Dubai last month.

In terms of prowess on clay, one can look to his junior record – 3 ATP Challenger Singles titles and 5 doubles titles, the most recent of which came in Genoa in September 2017.

Shapovalov is the odds-on favourite for this match at 5/7, whilst Struff is priced at 11/8. Struff will prove a wily opponent, but the teenager may have too much power and speed around the court.
