Denis Shapovalov v Aleksandar Vukic Head to Head
This will be a first meeting between the World No. 14 Shapovalov and World No. 207 Vekic.
Shapovalov Yet to Impress at Queen’s
Denis Shapovalov’s disappointing run on grass continued in Stuttgart last week, as the 2016 Wimbledon boy’s singles champion lost to eventual winner Marin Cilic in the quarterfinal of the tournament after reaching the stage by winning just one match in the tournament, against Feliciano Lopez, who had forced the decider against the top seed.
The 22-year-old is 4-10 overall on grass following last week’s event.
Forced to pull out of the French Open, the Canadian left-hander has a 15-12 overall record in 2021 and he finished 7-5 on clay, which included a runner-up finish to Casper Ruud in Geneva just before the start of the Paris major.
In addition to the Geneva final, Shapovalov also reached the semifinals in Dubai, where he lost to Lloyd Harris, and the third round at the Australian Open, losing to compatriot Felix Auger-Aliassime.
The World No. 14 won his only career title in Stockholm in 2019. He also has two runner-up finishes, one of them at an ATP Masters event in Paris and the other in Geneva this year.
This will be Shapovalov’s fourth appearance at the Queen’s Club. He reached the second round in his first appearance in 2017, when playing as a qualifier he defeated Kyle Edmund in the first round, but fell to Tomas Berdych in the next. The Canadian made first round exits in 2018 and 2019, losing to Gilles Muller and Juan Martin Del Potro respectively.
Vukic Though to Main Draw
Facing Shapovalov will be Australian Aleksander Vukic who won his qualifying rounds over the weekend.
The World No. 207 defeated Jason Jung 7-6, 7-6 on Saturday and then rallied to beat Britain’s Ryan Peniston 4-6, 7-6, 6-4 in the second qualifying round on Sunday.
Vukic, who has one Futures title from five finals and one runner-up finish at the Challenger level, is 1-4 in his career at the ATP level.
The Aussie began the year by winning his first tour-level match when he defeated Yen-Hsun Lu at the Great Ocean Road Open. He lost in the second round to Jannik Sinner and then faced a first-round exit at the Australian Open, after going down fighting to Karen Khachanov.
Vukic has mostly participated in lower-level competitions this year and comes to Queen’s after a Round of 16 finish at the Nottingham Challenger.
Shapovalov v Vukic Prediction and Tip
This should be a one-sided contest, with Shapovalov dominating the contest and breezing past the Australian.
