Denis Shapovalov: This young Canadian prodigy who is currently 69th in the ATP Rankings
has been having an amazing summer
Namely at the Masters 1000 in Toronto, where, with the help of his crowd, he eliminated players like Del Potro and Rafael Nadal.
He has a very complete game, from a fantastic lefty serve, to a one-handed backhand not less spectacular.
Besides that, he also makes a ton of winners, since he is an hyper-aggressive player with great depth on his shots.
At the current US Open, he got through qualifying, after not being granted a wild card that so many people thought he deserved.
Then, he eliminated players such as Medvedev, World’s No.12 Tsonga and Kyle Edmund, who was also in great shape.
Carreno Busta: This Spanish 26-year-old who currently sits in the 19th position of the ATP Rankings is a clay player, achieving great results on clay tournaments usually.
Consistency is the word that best describes this player. Some compare him to Djokovic due to his fighting spirit and for the fact that he doesn’t “offer” too many free points to his opponents.
On this Grand Slam he won the 3 first rounds in straight sets, all of them, but truth be told: all his opponents were below Top 100. This will therefore be his first real test here.
Denis Shapovalov vs Pablo Carreno Busta – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Head-to-head: These two players never met before.
Shapovalov will win. He is the player of the moment, and even the American crowd recognized it.
He will play on his favourite surface, where he eliminated players way better on hard court than Carreno Busta.
Despite the Spaniard’s will, he doesn’t have an offensive skillset that will stop the Canadian’s winners.
A riskier bet would be a 3-1 in favour of Denis, who usually starts his matches out of focus, but when he gets on track, there are not a lot of people who are able to stop him.
