Bopanna R./Shapovalov D. - Kubot L./Melo M.
Lukasz Kubot and Marcelo Melo are favorites to win before the start of this second round of the Masters in Shanghai, but they will not easily win this match if they win this second round at all.
Their opponents in this second round will be Rohan Bopanna and Denis Shapovalov.
This will be the first match between these two doubles.
Kubot and Melo are quality doubles players, but they did not come in the best shape in this tournament, they played the finals last week in Beijing, but already in the first round of this tournament they had problems, they won 2-0 in that match, but it was not an easy win, against an anonymous double, they played ten games in the first set of that match, so chances are big that the tenth game will play in the first set of this match.
Bopanna is a classic doubles player, he only plays doubles in this tournament, Shapovalov lost in singles in this tournament, so it is certain that the two will play the best they can in this match, as well as in the first set of this match, and that the service will be on high level in the first set of this match.
