Denis Shapovalov v Frances Tiafoe Head to Head
Shapovalov has a 3-1 head-to-head lead.
Tiafoe won the first contest at Delray Beach in 2018, while Shapovalov took the next three, winning in Cincinnati in 2018 and in Miami and Shanghai in 2019.
Shapovalov Storms Into the Quarters
World No. 14 Denis Shapovalov moved into the quarterfinals of the Queen’s Club Championships with a straight sets win over Feliciano Lopez on Thursday.
The Canadian, who had needed three sets to beat Lopez in the Round of 16 in Stuttgart last week, didn’t have much trouble in dispatching the Spaniard this time around as he eased to a 6-2, 6-3 win in an hour and 10 minutes.
In what was a dominating performance from the 22-year-old, Shapovalov didn’t face a break point in the match, while he converted three of six. He also won 79% service points and 42% return points to send the 39-year-old Spaniard packing.
The Canadian, who was the top seed in Stuttgart last week, defeated Lopez in the Round of 16 after getting a first-round bye, but was denied a place in the semifinals by eventual champion Marin Cilic.
He will have a second chance of making the final four on grass this season when he plays Tiafoe in the quarterfinals on Friday.
Shapovalov had begun his Queen’s campaign with a tough 7-6 (8-6), 7-6 (8-6) win over Australian qualifier Aleksandar Vukic on Tuesday.
Thursday’s win improved the left-handed Canadian to 17-12 this year. He had reached a third career final in Geneva last month but couldn’t add to the sole title he won in Stockholm two years ago.
Tiafoe’s Good Form on Grass Continues
Shapovalov will meet World No. 65 Frances Tiafoe in the quarterfinal on Friday. The 23-year-old American earned a place in the last eight with a 6-3, 7-6 (7-3) win over Serbia’s Viktor Troicki in the Round of 16 on Thursday.
Tiafoe saved all three break points against the World No. 230, and got a vital break in the first set. He also won 40 of 47 first serve points and 12 of 21 points on the second serve.
The American, who won the Delray Beach title in 2018 and finished runner-up in Estoril the same year, had to rally from a set down to defeat Slovenia’s Aljaz Bedene in the first round.
The one-hour-and-57-minute contest saw Tiafoe win 4-6, 6-3, 6-4.
Troicki needed just an hour and 17 minutes to beat Troicki on Thursday. The win was also his seventh consecutive on grass this year, however his first five came at the Nottingham Challenger last week, where he beat Denis Kudla in the final to win his sixth Challenger title.
Overall, Tiafoe is 12-10 this year, with his best coming at Delray Beach, where he reached the quarters and at Miami where he reached the Round of 16.
Shapovalov v Tiafoe Prediction and Tip
Tiafoe is in good form and he will pose a challenge but eventually the second seed should win a fourth consecutive against the American and move into the semifinals.
