The Canadian has not been performing properly for a long time, and all because of injuries. For example, last season Pospisil started only in July. Vasek was once in the top 30, but then began to devote a lot of time to doubles, where he won the Grand Slam tournaments. His results in singles are very poor, Pospisil is still unable to show good tennis at ATP tournaments, where there is strong competition. Pospisil had a powerful end of the season, he reached the 1/8 finals in Shanghai, where he lost only to Daniil Medvedev, and then played well in the Davis Cup, beating Fognini and Millman.
Last season was for the Canadian as a roller coaster, he performed at the peak of his form, then felt a decline. As a result, Denis finally won the debut ATP tournament in his career (Stockholm), after which he performed perfectly in Paris and reached the final where he was able to stop Djokovic. Shapovalov also defended the honor of the country in the Davis Cup, then the ATP Cup. Both international tournaments were good practice for Denis, where he played against the best tennis players on the planet. Denis played well against Djokovic and de Minaur, he looked very good in these matches.
