Dominic Thiem v Denis Shapovalov Head to Head
The pair have met once before in the Acapulco Open last year, with Thiem winning that encounter in straight sets, conceding just five games in the process.
Thiem, Winner of Third Title of 2019 in Austria
No player in 2019 has won more titles in 2019 than Thiem. His victory last week in front of his home fans in Kitzbuhel in Austria was his third title of the year, drawing him level with Roger Federer.
That victory came on clay, and together with his win in Barcelona, and his defeat in his second successive French Open final in June, have helped establish him as the second best clay court player on tour, after Rafael Nadal, the man who beat him in Roland Garros.
However, as his victory at the Indian Wells Masters in March proved, he can also play on hard courts, having previously won tournaments on that surface at St. Petersburg in 2018, and Acapulco two years earlier.
He reached the quarter-finals at the US Open last year, and will be looking to improve on that record at Flushing Meadows in a few weeks’ time.
Shapovalov, Glad To Be at Home Again
Still only 20, Shapovalov has had to cede his crown as Canada’s most promising young player to his good friend Felix Auger-Aliassime this year. Though he has not been able to match the exploits of his young compatriots, he is still capable of impressing, as can be seen from his run to the semi-finals in Miami, before Roger Federer put a stop to it.
Consistency though remains elusive, and he came into this tournament off the back of a five match losing streak, which included first round defeats at both Roland Garros and Wimbledon.
However, proving the old adage that there is “no place like home”, he thrived on Monday back in front of his Canadian fans again, in an event where he first made his name two years ago. Playing the experienced French player Pierre-Hugues Herbert, he produced a fine performance from the back of the court, breaking his opponent’s serve four times, and dropping his own just once.
Thiem v Shapovalov Predictions & Tips
Thiem is the odds-on favourite to win this match at 8/13, whilst Shapovalov is priced at 13/10. The Canadian will enjoy the benefit of heavy home crowd support, but is hard to see that being enough to help him defeat the in-form Austrian.
Tip: Thiem to win in straight sets: 10/11 (888Sport)
