This will be the first face-to-face meeting of the players. The best result for the Canadian in Rome is the third round. The Argentine has never overcome the first round. Pella won two matches this year on clay. Shapovalov hasn't played yet.
Now the Argentine is not doing so well. After the restart, he managed to win only one match. In the first round of Kitzb?hel he defeated the Japanese Nishioku (6-3, 6-0). On the other hand, immediately after that he lost to Feliciano Lopez (5-7, 7-6, 6-7).
It should be noted that Shapovalov does not perform well on this surface. For example, last year on clay he had only two victories. The representative of Canada does not really like long rallies, so he is not enough in the game on the back line for a long time.
Last year,Shapovalov lost almost all of his matches on clay in three sets. Despite the defeats, the Canadian fought. It is not excluded that this time Denis will be charged for the fight. A successful performance at the US Open should give him confidence in his abilities, so Shapovalov has every chance to beat the Argentine.
Our prediction is that Denis Shapovalov will win for 1.88 odds in 1xBet
