Shapovalov - Thiem
In this match of second round at ATP Masters in Montreal home crowd favorite Dennis Shapovalov from Canada will play against Austrian star Dominick Thiem. Shapovalov won in his first round match against Pierre Hugues Herbert 2:0 in sets while this will be first match here in Montreal for Thiem. Thiem won last week tournament in Kitzbuhel in front his own crowd. That tournament was played on clay and Thiem had no time to adjust to hard court surface here in Montreal. He had to do long travel from Austria to Canada. Even though Shapovalov is only 20 he already had some big results. Here in Montreal in his last appearance from 2017 he played in Semis where he lost to Zverev. He made some big upsets that year and he managed to win against Juan Martin Del Potro and Rafael Nadal. It is certain that he loves to play here and that crowd will be on his side for sure. I think that Shapovalov will be able to win at least one set in this match against Thiem. Thiem is clay court specialist, if Rafa is King of clay than Thiem could be a Prince. He plays his best tennis on clay.Pick: AH 1 (S) +1.5
