David Goffin v Denis Shapovalov Head to Head
Their only meeting was on the hard courts in Tokyo, at the Japan Open in 2019, which Goffin won in two tiebreaks.
Goffin High On Confidence In Round Of 16
Belgian David Goffin has been on the tour for most of the last decade and exhibited promise, talent and consistency. He reached a career-high ranking of number seven in the world in 2017, before injuries led to breaks from the tour and inconsistent form, and saw him drop to number 30 in the rankings in 2018.
The gritty Goffin did well in 2019 to make the finals of the ATP 500 at Halle and the Masters 1000 finals at Cincinnati and return to the top in the ATP rankings. 2020 has been a mixed short season for the Belgian, who will be ruing not doing better at the Western & Southern Open this week, losing to German Struff in three sets.
The Belgian had a difficult opening round opponent, in big serving American Reilly Opelka, but grinded it out well and prevailed in four sets. His next two rounds were against wily opponents, in Lloyd Harris and Serbian Filip Krajinovic. Goffin did well to get the better of both, not without some close moments though. While Harris took a set off the Belgian, Krajinovic came in high on confidence after a successful run at the Western & Southern Open, but Goffin looked in the best touch of the week that he has and prevailed in straight sets.
Goffin has been around on the tour for a while, and has all it takes to beat the best out there, but has not managed to get past the quarter-finals of a major, with this ATP finals showing at the O2 arena in London, still being his best performance. With Novak Djokovic looming in his quarter, it will take more than a spirited Goffin to get past the last eight this time around as well.
Three Tough and Long Matches For Shapovalov Already
Denis Shapovalov incidentally broke onto the scene around this time of the year, back in 2017. A semi-final showing at the 2017 Rogers’ Cup with victories over Rafael Nadal, and Juan Martin del Potro, was followed by a second week showing at the US Open with win over former top ranked Jo-Wilried Tsonga. The young Canadian has since had an up and down career, some of it due to his young age and relative inexperience.
2020 got off to a good start with wins over Alexander Zverev and Stefanos Tsitsipas at the ATP Cup, but was followed by a disappointing opening round loss to Marton Fucsovics at the Australian Open. February saw another mix of inconsistent form, and after a good start last week at the Western & Southern Open, Shapovalov, lost his way against German Jan-Lennard Struff.
Seeded 12th here this fortnight, it has been a more difficult week for Shapovalov than anticipated. He was pushed to four sets by both American Sebastian Korda and Korean Kwon Soon-woo in the first two rounds, and had Taylor Fritz serving for the set against him in the round, before he came back to win in five sets.
Going into the latter rounds of the tournament, Shapovalov will know that he needs to be more consistent early on in the match, as the quality of opponents continues to improve.
Goffin v Shapovalov Prediction & Tip
A good fourth round match in prospect, with lots to play for both players. While there isn’t much to choose from between either, the Belgian is more seasoned, more experienced and more rested. Shapovalov will bring the flair and flamboyance, along with the breathtaking hitting, but the dogged Goffin should prevail in four sets.
Tip: Goffin to win in four sets: 15/4 (bet365)
