The Ball Is in His Court

Teenage prodigy, Denis Shapovalov is the new Canadian tennis youngster ripping up the tennis court. At only 18 years old, Shapovalov is the second youngest player to ever beat world number 2 Rafael Nadal in his first match against anyone in the top 10. Unfortunately, he was then knocked out in the last 16 of the Rogers Cup, losing to world number 8, Alexander Zverev Jr.

Rising Tennis Star Denis Shapalov

While he still ranks far from even the top 20 for now, Shapovalov is the youngest player ranked in the world top 200. This is a colossal leap from the 143rd spot, where he started at the beginning of the year. This mean-teen, serving-machine most likely gets his tennis genes from his mother, who was also a professional tennis player. Tessa Shapovalov played for the Soviet Union national team.

Top 5 Facts About Denis Shapovalov

  1. Denis was actually born in Tel Aviv, Isreal but his family relocated to Canada before his first birthday.
  2. Denis started playing Tennis from the age of five at his mother’s tennis club.
  3. His mother is still a part of his coaching team.
  4. Denis won his first junior singles title at the International Tennis Federation in October 2013.
  5. Denis won the first Junior Davis Cup for Canada in its history together with fellow Canadians Félix Auger-Aliassime and Benjamin Sigouin.

Denis Shapovalov’s game is far beyond his years and is certainly a keen tennis-talent to keep your eyes on. Expect this year’s surprise dark-horse to come out the blocks like a bat out of hell against any top seed player. Having already proved he can do the business against Rafael Nadal, he will want to build on this success. As cliché as it may sound, with all to play for, the ball is most certainly in Shapovalov’s court.
