THE PREDICTION

MercedesCup first seed Denis Shapovalov would be forgiven for feeling quite hard done-by for having to finish off his round of 16 match against Feliciano Lopez earlier today and then playing his quarter-final in the penultimate game of the day. However, the Canadian will be used to it seeing as he was forced to do exactly the same at the rain-battered Geneva Open three weeks ago and the momentum from his round of 16 win over Marco Cecchinato took him straight through Laslo Djere in the quarter-finals. This should aid him again against world number 47 Marin Cilic, who will be a danger throughout but may struggle to match world number 12 Shapovalov’s intensity. 22-year-old Shapovalov leads their head-to-head record 3-1 and has won the last three meetings so take him to win this outright.
