Denis Shapovalov v Marco Cecchinato Head to Head

While these two have never faced off at the highest level on the ATP tour, they did meet once on the Challenger circuit in 2017. It was a match played on clay and Cecchinato had won it in straight sets.

Shapovalov Much Improved in Rome

After making an ordinary start to the clay swing, Shapovalov looked to have come into his own in Rome.

A couple of wins in the first two rounds were followed by the Canadian taking a set off Rafael Nadal in the third round. What more, Shapovalov then pushed Nadal into a final set tie-breaker where the Spaniard finally scraped through.

It was one of those results which, had it gone in his favour, would have sent his confidence soaring but even with that defeat, Shapovalov would take a lot out of it. Especially given his struggles earlier which had seen him win just two matches out of five before entering the Rome Masters.

A third round appearance at the Australian Open and a semifinal in Dubai were two of the other results that had gone Shapovalov’s way but with a career-best showing of second round at Roland-Garros, he would like to go into the season’s second Grand Slam with another Rome-like showing.

Cecchinato Ahead When Opponent Retires

Cecchinato had needed a couple of qualifying wins to make the main draw but like in those matches, he didn’t drop a set in the first round either.

The Italian was leading Stefano Travaglia 6-3, 3-0 when his opponent retired from the match due to an injury. And that gives Cecchinato a rare place in round two of an ATP event having struggled through the rest of the season.

In fact, Cecchinato is in his 13th tournament for 2021, and before this he had made round two only five times. He lost that match on all of those five occasions too, making this a potentially special match if he can go on to win it.

On clay, Cecchinato will fancy a chance too despite going up against the world number 15, especially one who hasn’t done that well on the red dirt.

Shapovalov v Cecchinato Prediction and Tip

While Shapovalov is a favourite for us too, odds of 1/2 don’t do justice to what Cecchinato is capable of and we believe we could see a far tighter match. Could well have a three-setter here.

Tip: Three sets in the match: 11/8 (Click Here to Bet with bet365)
