Denis Shapovalov v Benjamin Bonzi Head to Head
There is no head to head record between the two as they face off for the first time.
Shapovalov Hoping to Avoid Sixth Defeat in a row
Shapovalov had shocked the tennis world by defeating defeating Rafael Nadal in the Round of 16 of the Rome Masters early this May. Since then he has lost all 5 matches he has played.
He has faced 4 consecutive first round exits, and two of them were on grass. Basically, he is also searching for his first win on grass this season.
The Canadian lost to Oscar Otte in the first match in Stuttgart, both sets going to a tie break. Devoid of confidence and form, he lost both the tie breaks.
In Queens, Tommy Paul played exceptional tennis to defeat Shapovalov 6-4, 2-6, 6-4. Shapovalov created many breakpoint opportunities but was not able to return well on those points.
The current form of Shapovalov is quite concerning. He needs a few wins on the trot to get back the level that enabled him to win the ATP Cup and reach the Australian Open quarterfinal in January this year.
Bonzi Showing Promise On Grass
France’s Benjamin Bonzi started his grass season spectacularly, defeating Feliciano Lopez and Arthur Rinderknech in straight sets in Stuttgart. He was serving extremely smoothly and his return game was as efficient.
Unfortunately few hours before his quarterfinal match against Oscar Otte, he had to withdraw due to abdominal pain.
In the first round in Halle, he faced the second seed in Stefanos Tsitsipas and took him to three sets. He played well and gave a good fight but was not able to convert his break chances in the third set.
The Frenchman played qualifier Alejandro Tabilo in the first round in Mallorca. He was winning comfortably 6-3, 4-2 when his opponent had to retire hurt.
Bonzi will now play a seeded player two tournaments in a row. He is 3-1 on grass this year and has an exceptional career winning percentage on grass of 76%.
Shapovalov v Bonzi Prediction and Tip
The form of Shapovalov may provide more reason to favour Benjamin Bonzi as an underdog in this match up, however the Canadian is a top ranked player and is bound to find his level soon. Bonzi doesn’t have a good tie break record and could be on the wrong side of the pressure points.
