Without risk, there is no benefit. Denis Shapovalov, one of the most brazen tennis players on the circuit, has reached his first semifinal of Grand slam after beating in five sets Karen khachanov in the rooms of Wimbledon: 6-4, 3-6, 5-7, 6-1 and 6-4 in 3h. 25 ‘.
The Canadian will be the rival of Novak Djokovic with a place in the final at stake. The Serbian has been imposed on Shapovalov in his previous six precedents, but the North American will arrive at the meeting without pressure or complexes to try to break the forecasts. Tennis for it has, another thing will be the version that will be of the nº 1, normally who dictates the script of its parties if it is tuned.
Shapovalov, 22, world No. 12, was expected sooner rather than later in these final rounds of the Grand Slam. His daring tennis is so daring that it often takes its toll with too many unforced errors, but little by little he is maturing in that calculated risk-taking and, therefore, rearing his head more decisively.
Denis was planted last year for the first time in the quarters of a Grand Slam in the US Open And, continuing this upward dynamic, the Canadian has taken the next step at this Wimbledon, debuting in a ‘big’ semi-final.
