Denis Shapovalov

I thought I would create Denis Shapovalov his own Thread considering now he is firmly inside the top 30 in junior and raising and he is an double grand slam champ as well and plus his result have gotten better over the last couple months, we can still post in the 1999-2001 Juniors Thread about him as well if you like just like for Felix. but I just thought it was time for him to get his own thread, and hopefully he continue to carry on his great form and success through this years and many years to come for Canada tennis

Re: Denis Shapovalov

I'd add from the written accounts of his matches and watching the streams this week is he has a bit of a temper especially if he thinks the umpire made the wrong call. Couple times in the JDC matches this week and in the G1 USA final against Felix, Collette Lewis reported he blew his top in the second set.

Lefty OHBH. How often do you see that?

Something about OHBH players though, when they playing well, the stroke looks so beautiful.

@Ace20

He actually doesn't train full time at the NTC. He trains mainly in his hometown of Vaughan (north of Toronto) where his mother is a private tennis coach for hire. She was a tour player and was runner up in the USSR national championships according to her bio.

Re: Denis Shapovalov

His highest ATP ranking is actually 1985.

I will look forward to following him, it appears he will have a bright future.

He was in the same position as Brayden Schnur, he was a top player, but the NTC recruited Ben, Jack, Josh, Victor and Alexis over him due to disagreements with his playing/coaching schedule and due to some behavioural issues he had when he was younger.

His fulltime coach is actually Adriano Fuoriva who used to play low level pro tennis, his mother is more of a consultant now.
