On January 3, at the ATP Cup tournament, Stefanos Tsitsipas will have to meet with Denis Shapovalov. Will the Greek tennis player win? – read in our prediction.

Stefanos Tsitsipas

Tsitsipas on a major note finished last year, winning the final ATP tournament in London. Then, in the final, the Greek beat Dominique Tim, and before that, he defeated Roger Federer. Most experts consider Stefanos one of the most promising players of our day, so it is not surprising to see him as the favorite of this confrontation.

Two weeks ago, Tsitsipas took part in an exhibition tournament in Abu Dhabi. Beating Andrei Rublev (6-3, 6-4) and Novak Djokovic (3-6, 7-6, 6-4), the Greek athlete lost to Rafael Nadal (7-6, 5-7, 6-7).

Denis Shapovalov

Unlike Tsitsipas, Shapovalov did not play in official matches for a long time. The last time he went to court at the end of November last year, when he represented Canada in the Davis Cup. Those competitions cannot be called successful for him since he lost his matches to Alex De Minaur and Rafael Nadal. True, Matteo Berrettini, Taylor Fritz, and Karen Khachanov were defeated in the remaining fights.

The representative of Canada successfully plays against Tsitsipas, so he will try again to beat his opponent.

Statistics and personal meetings

  • Shapovalov has won 4 of his last 5 personal meetings.
  • Last year, in Miami, the Canadian defeated the Greeks in three sets.

Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Denis Shapovalov Predictions

Tsitsipas is the favorite of the meeting, but Shapovalov is an opponent too uncomfortable for him. Over the course of his career, Stefanos defeated Denis only once and did it in three sets. We believe that the match will not be an easy walk for the Greeks. Denis probably shows resistance.
