Preliminary review and pre-match prediction for Denis Shapovalov vs Steve Johnson
Shapovalov reached the final at the ATP level for the fifth time in his career last week. However, unfortunately, he did not manage to take the title.
In the final of the Kore Open, Denis lost to Yoshihito Nishioka (4-6, 6-7). The Japanese held his serve and managed to win two games on the receiving end. It was an incredibly hard match, but Shapovalov’s opponent was slightly better in the key moments of the match.
Denis had beaten Jaume Munar, Radu Albot and Jenson Brooksby before that, without dropping a set.
Apparently, Shapovalov renewed his partnership with Mikhail Youzhny for a reason. The previous few months he had a really good performance.
Shapovalov has won five of his last six matches on hard court.
Johnson also visited the tournament in Seoul. Unlike Shapovalov, Steve lost already in the second round to Radu Albot.
Before that, Steve had an unsuccessful performance in San Diego. In the first match, he lost to Alejandro Tabilo.
At the US Open, Johnson immediately lost without a chance to Grigor Dimitrov.
Still, the former world #21 has had some successes. For example, he won two matches each in Newport, Los Cabos and Winston-Salem. In addition, the American made it two rounds at Wimbledon.
Johnson has lost six of his last seven matches on the Asian courts.
In 4 of Shapovalov’s last 5 matches, more than 9.5 games have been played in the first set. We offer to bet on “1st Set Games – Over 9.5” with odds of 1.54.
