Denis Shapovalov vs Roberto Bautista Agut: Preview
Denis Shapovalov has had an incredible campaign at the Wimbledon Championships 2021 so far. Even though he was lucky to get a walkover against Pablo Andujar in the second round, he thrashed Andy Murray in straight sets in front of his home crowd in the third round to seal a place in the pre-quarters.
Similarly, Spain’s Roberto Bautista Agut has been played amazingly well in the Grand Slam as well. He recently crushed Germany’s Dominik Koepfer in straight sets in the third round to enter into the fourth round of the competition.
Shapovalov’s amazing serves are definitely going to be a big challenge for Agut. The Canadian has a pretty high serve and follows them up with some beautiful forehands. On the other hand, he’ll have to watch out for Agut’s behind the baseline gameplay in which he specifically targets his opponent’s backhands. As a result, he’ll need to do a lot of work on his backhand before the match.
