Denis Shapovalov vs Daniil Medvedev Betting Tip:
Head-to-head: This will be the first encounter between them
Match without any big favourite, as we can tell by the odds offered. Both players have similar quality and characteristics.
Medvedev has left a very bad impression on the previous tournaments, even seeming tired physically;
Shapovalov has gone through qualifying, and arrives here motivated due to his last tournament.
The Canadian player is very young and still has a lot to improve, especially because he still usually commits some silly mistakes, and gets lost on a few moments, which is normal.
It should be a very close match, but I’m backing the player that is in better form.
