Novak Djokovic vs Denis Shapovalov – Wimbledon 2021 Match preview, Live stream details, weather forecast and more


Novak Djokovic vs Denis Shapovalov is a semi-final match at Wimbledon 2021 and here is the preview, live stream details, weather forecast and more

Novak Djokovic looks unstoppable as he sailed into the semi-finals of the Wimbledon Championships beating Hungarian Martin Fucsovics 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 to face Dennis Shapovalov.

The Canadian was part of a 5-set thriller against Russian Karen Khachenov 6-4, 3-6, 5-7, 6-1, 6-4 in 3hrs 26 mins. He is the first Canadian man to reach the last 4 at Wimbledon since Milos Raonic in 2016. 

“When you look at the scoreboard first thing it will be 0-0. Nothing else matters. It’s a tennis match and it can go either way. I have full belief in myself and my team. Anything is possible,” said Shapovalov who is in his first Grand Slam semi-final.

Djokovic is on the quest for a hat-trick of Slams in 2021. He has had an impressive record the season winning the Australian and French Open.

“Overall, I feel like I’ve been hitting the ball well throughout the entire tournament, putting myself exactly where I want to be [in the] semi-finals. I’m not spending too much energy. Now I really have to be consistent from the first to last point in next match, and hopefully another one on Sunday.”

Djokovic is now into his 10th Wimbledon semifinal, the third-most in men’s tennis after Federer and Jimmy Connors. The 34-year-old Serbian, who is currently on an impressive 16-match winning streak, from a ninth Australian Open crown (def. Medvedev) in February and a second title at Roland Garros (def. Tsitsipas) last month.

Novak Djokovic vs Dennis Shapovalov prediction

Djokovic is playing like he is on a league of his own with his shot-making prowess on display. He is the likely favourite to win the tournament after his devastating form in the last 10 days.

Shapovalov, meanwhile, has had some major scalps in his career, but has lacked the consistency needed to make it to the final stages. This time around, he gets a chance to change that as he faces the World No. 1.

With the poor record, the World No. 12 will try to find a weakness in his opponent’s game. At this point, that looks unlikely seeing how the Serb has been playing.

The winner of the face is likely to face Italian Matteo Berretini who faces Federer’ conqueror, Hubert Hurkacz.

Prediction: Djokovic in 4 sets
