THE PREDICTION

This should be a fantastic match between the second and fifth seeds, Denis Shapovalov and Stan Wawrinka respectively, with their head-to-head record finely poised on one win apiece. Notably, both of their previous meetings also came on indoor hard courts, with the Swiss winning the most recent fixture last year in the quarter-finals of the Rotterdam Open. The result of this match could really go either way as Wawrinka has not totally convinced in his two three-set matches so far, while Shapovalov has yet to face a real challenge as the world number 12. The Canadian has yet to drop a set in St. Petersburg and, while it may be tempting to suggest he will concede one to Wawrinka, Shapovalov could just as well turn it on to power through in two to reach his first semi-final at this tournament.
