On October 29, Canada’s Denis Shapovalov will face Germany’s Jan-Lennard Struff in the quarter-final match of the St. Petersburg Open, 2021. The presented tennis players have not been doing much lately, so their duel would be of great importance for both rivals.

Struff handled tough opponents with confidence at the start of the tournament, and there is no question that these victories will allow him to fully release himself. Yes, a full-fledged comeback of Jan is still hard to predict. However, the fact that he has begun to make significant gains in his game is pretty encouraging. The German representative is in high spirits in Russia’s cultural capital, and as a result, may generate a slew of issues for the remaining contenders.

Jan-Lennard Struff defeated a battling Bublik to set up a tense match against no. 2 seed Denis Shapovalov. Struff will have to attempt to be aggressive on second serve returns to take him out; Shapovalov is a highly unreliable server, so if he can generate pressure on occasion, Shapovalov may very well do the rest of the job for him. Still, Shapovalov is a top player in the world for a reason, and it’s believed that he’ll repeat his performance against Andujar, hitting corners with tremendous force and attempting to be as aggressive as possible as he seeks a berth in the 2021 St Petersburg Open semi-finals.

Dubai is a speedy court, and Shapovalov is just in superior condition, so even if Struff is a poor matchup for him, Shapovalov is anticipated to fight through it. Struff will most certainly challenge him, but if Shapovalov can retain his level from his first encounter, he should be able to claim the match in a gruelling three sets and continue his ruthless campaign at the 2021 St Petersburg Open.

Match Prediction: Denis Shapovalov to win in 3 sets.
