Karen Khachanov vs Denis Shapovalov: Prediction and Betting Tips
Karen Khachanov hopes to be fit after a tiring fourth-round match
After three easy matches in the first three rounds dropping just one set Karen Khachanov had to dig deep in the fourth round against Sebastian Korda. The Russian lost the first set after some unstable serving where he won just 22% of the points on his second serve. Khachanov bounced back and won the second and third set after increasing his first and second serve percentages.
Korda leveled the score at 2-2 after winning the fourth set. In the decider, both players’ nerves played a big part as they struggled with their service which saw a dramatic decrease in winning the points. There were 13 service breaks in total in the fifth set with Khachanov edging the breaks to his favor 7-6 as he concluded the set to his favor 10-8.

We think it will be a close match as both Khachnov and Shapovalov are fighters and think it is a great opportunity for them to reach their first-ever Grand Slam semi-final.
Shapovalov is playing great tennis but hasn’t been tested yet which we think will happen against Khachanov. An interesting betting market is the total breaks. We think it will be a long match and both players might lose their services many times.
