Good win for the Canadian in a hostile environment over a top 10 player. Now the H2H is 2-0 for Denis. While very close, it felt like Denis was always going to pull this one out.

I couldn't find as much as the scoreline of live matches on DC official website. Let alone OOP. What is this nonsense?

Anyway, good win for Shapo. I assume he needed a healthy amount of luck to avoid breaks with his 13 DF's.

Not really.
Mostly untroubled on serve despite the DFs

Can’t help but think that the hype for Berrettini is really overrated, I mean he’s had some good results and gone deep in a few tournaments but he’s not on the level of the likes of Tsitsipas, Zverev, Thiem etc

I agree. He has a good serve and FH but his BH and movement are subpar. People will start to learn how to play him. I don't think he will have the same success next season.

Not sure I would have played Denis for the doubles. It was obviously important as going 3-0 would have improved the odds of getting through as 1 of the 2 best 2nd place teams if they lose tomorrow which will now be tough with 2-1 as their win, but the most likely way to get through was to win both and Denis played a lot today. They should be favorites against the US but I'm curious to who will play for them.

Shapovalov is the much better player of the two, and will easily have the better career. It's a shame Berretti qualified for WTF instead of him as Shapovalov would've made that group far more interesting imo.

I understand it, it's the same reason why Russia played Khachanov and Rublev after they'd already won. Every match is incredibly important in this format. There's a serious possibility Canada could lose to the USA and have a 3 way tie (which would come down to matches won) and/or coming 2nd (where advancement would again come down to matches won).

I understand the logic, and for me if I and the choice I might have done the same but I'm not sure. Playing him clearly increases the chances of going 3-0 which increases the chances of winning a 3 way tie or a top two 2nd place team as you said. But I think it does decrease his chances of winning tomorrow now that's he's spent 4.5 hours on court today. Just comes down to how much it decreases it I guess because getting 3-0 would have been pretty big.

On a side note winning the group gets the winner of the Belgium/Australia group which would be a favourable QF so please beat the USA tomorrow.

Didn’t watch but the far better prospect won. Well done. And BTW - Berrettini participation in ATP Finals was a joke. Should have been Denis as a WC instead of him or Djokovic.
