Shapovalov - Karatsev Over S (0.5)
So today, the second round of the Masters tournament is scheduled to take place in California, more precisely in Indian Wells. Canadian tennis player Denis Shapovalov and Russian tennis player Aslan Karatsev will compete. My tip is that the Russian tennis player will play at least one set in this match.
So it is a surface that is extremely slow, in its characteristics quite similar to clay,where the conditions are quite slow, and the bounce is extremely high and unpredictable. Karatsev is a player who can definitely provide more on this type of surface, and he played very well on clay at the beginning of this season, where he won Belgrade and defeated Novak Djokovic. He is very well versed in all segments of the game, and can play on all surfaces equally well. His return is at a high level, and his backhand is extremely precise and strong. On the other hand, great things were expected from Shapovalov, but at least so far he has not met expectations, and there are no big and noticeable results. It is a very good server, and has a strong forehand, but its backhand is its downside. He also has problems with good defenders and contrasts who manage to return his bombs, and he fails to continuously make shots, and very often makes mistakes in such cases. I believe that we will watch such a match today and that Karatsev will make him make mistakes, and come to victory in this match. I believe in the victory of this year s great Russian. Good luck
