Novak Djokovic v Denis Shapovalov Head to Head
The pair have met five times on the tour so far. The Serbian leads the tally 4-1. The Canadian’s only victory came on the grass courts at the Boodles Tennis Challenge last year.
Djokovic Looking in Imperious Form Ahead of the Australian Open
After starting the tournament with a tough and grinding victory over Kevin Anderson, the 32-year-old Serbian is looking in top form now. He dispatched Gael Monfils and Christian Garin with ease and identical scorelines. He also played a double match pairing up with Viktor Troicki to give a crucial win to Serbia.
With the defense of his Australian Open due to begin in less than two weeks from now, he will be looking to continue his impressive form and go all the way. Clinching the inaugural ATP Cup for his country and claiming up to 750 ranking points will be a huge confidence boost for him. He will be up against a player he beat a couple of months ago at the final of Paris Masters.
Shapovalov with Two Huge Victories Under his Belt
Team Canada got through to the last eight as one of the top two-second place teams. They had a slice of luck as Argentina’s win over Croatia meant that they got through.
2019’s Canadian Male player of the year winner, Shapovalov has looked very impressive so far in the tournament. He has won two matches against higher-ranked opponents in Stefanos Tsitsipas and Alexander Zverev. His only loss came in a tough three-setter against Alex De Minaur, who had the backing of a very vocal crowd behind him.
Currently enjoying his highest ever ranking at 14 in the world, the 20-year-old had a solid 2019. He won his maiden title in Stockholm and reached the last four at Miami Masters. His best run of the year came at the Paris Masters, where he reached the finals before losing to Djokovic. He will be hoping to avenge that loss against the Serbian and give his team a huge victory in the tie.
Novak Djokovic v Denis Shapovalov Predictions & Tips
Shapovalov has shown twice in this tournament that on his day he can punish an opponent stronger then him. And he surely has the game to trouble Djokovic too. But unfortunately for the Canadian, Djokovic is playing near-perfect tennis at the moment. This match is likely to be Djokovic’s toughest test in the tournament so far, but one that he is likely to come through.
