Medvedev vs Shapovalov: prediction for the Laver Cup match
Medvedev is in fantastic shape and in good spirits, too. The Russian tennis player won his first Major in mid-September; he confidently outplayed Novak Djokovic in three straight sets in the final of the US Open (6-4, 6-4, 6-4). In August Medvedev also won the Masters in Toronto. We expect Medvedev to do well at the Laver Cup.
Shapovalov can't boast any victories lately. The Canadian tennis player reached the third round of the US Open, however, this can't be considered a great achievement for a player like Shapovalov. Before the start of the Major, Shapovalov appeared at the tournament in Gstaad and at the Masters in Toronto and Cincinnati, and he was eliminated in the first rounds of these tournaments. We are not convinced that Shapovalov will do well at the Laver Cup.
Medvedev didn't play tie-breaks in the last 5 matches.
Shapovalov played under 9.5 games in the first set in 3 of his last 5 matches.
Shapovalov leads the head-to-head at 2-1, but we believe that Medvedev will level that score today. The Russian is in excellent shape and he should have no problems defeating Shapovalov in the upcoming match.
Our prediction - handicap (-3) to Medvedev
