Denis Shapovalov vs Vit Kopriva Prediction
Shapovalov is relying on his powerful shots which saw him become very successful on the quick surfaces of Wimbledon and Queen’s. The Canadian has a very strong first serve and will be his main weapon on clay.
This is Kopriva’s only second participation in an ATP tournament this season. He has just two wins under his belt in these tournaments. The Czech will do his best to be a tough opponent in this match and with his second serve percentage, he can be a danger.
We don’t think Shapovalov will find it much difficult to overcome his opponent and we predict under 21.5 total games.
