Novak Djokovic vs. Denis Shapovalov. Prediction for ATP Cup match (February 2, 2021)
On February 2, Novak Djokovic will play with Denis Shapovalov in the ATP Cup. How will the Serbian tennis player’s start at the tournament be? Read in our prediction.
Serbian national team, led by Djokovic, is the current winner of the ATP Cup. Last year, the Serbs beat Spain (2:1) in a decisive match. Can the Serbian team repeat last year's achievement? We will find out very soon.
In the first round of the current ATP Cup, Djokovic will face Denis Shapovalov, whom he has repeatedly won. The last time it happened last year at the ATP Cup in the play-offs of the tournament; the Serb closed that match in three games (4-6, 6-1, 7-6).
Upcoming Predictions for Tennis
Shapovalov has not entered the court this season yet. The representative of Canada did not play exhibition matches as well, unlike his upcoming opponent. In the tennis exhibition tournament "A Day at the Drive", held in Melbourne, Djokovic played a set against Jannik Sinner (6-3).
Shapovalov last time played last November - then in the first round of the tennis tournament in Sofia, Denis lost to Radu Albot in two games (2-6, 4-6). Shapovalov's losing streak currently consists of four matches.
Djokovic repeatedly prevailed over Shapovalov, so everything is more than clear with the favorite in the upcoming match. Besides, Novak has already had one confrontation played on Australian courts, while for Shapovalov this will be the first match of the season. We expect a confident victory of the first racket of the world in the upcoming match and offer to bet on his victory with a handicap in games.
Our prediction is that Djokovic will win with a handicap (-4) with odds of 1.81 in 1xBet.
