Denis Shapovalov Career
Denis Shapovalov was born April 15, 1999 in Tel Aviv (Israel) to a family of immigrants from the former Soviet Union. However, the Shapovalovs did not stay there for long and when the boy was not yet a year old they moved to Canada.
Denis’s first coach was his mother Tessa, who had a decisive influence on the playing style of the future star. Currently he is one of the few tennis players on the tour who confidently use the one-handed backhand. Shapovalov considers Roger Federer to be his idol, saying he always followed his style of play and tried to be as aggressive as possible on the court. The Canadian’s favorite surfaces are hard and grass.
The Canadian proved himself quite well as a junior player. His first successes coincided with the arrival of new coach Adriano Fuorivia to his coaching staff, who for some time shared his duties equally with the tennis player’s mother. In 2015 Denis paired with Felix Auger-Allassim to win the doubles trophy of the US Junior Open and won the Davis Junior Cup with the national team.
That same season, Shapovalov made his debut on the adult courts, taking part in the Futures Primaries. Nevertheless, he was in no hurry to leave the juniors and managed to break through to the semifinals of the French Junior Open and become Wimbledon Junior Champion, beating such notable opponents as Stefanos Tsitsipas (Greece) and Alex de Minor (Australia).
Since 2016, the Canadian has devoted most of his time to playing in adult tournaments. After winning a number of Futures, he receives an invitation first to the first Challenger of his career, and then to the main draw of the Rogers Cup, where he wins a psychologically important victory, beating the unpredictable Australian Nick Kyrios. That same season, Denis makes the Canadian senior national team and plays his first matches.
2017 brings the Canadian his first Challenger trophy, as well as his debut in the majors. He managed to really shine in the second half of the season: after a poor performance at Wimbledon, where he could not advance beyond the first round, Denis showed brilliant results at his home Masters and made it to the fourth round of the U.S. Open. At the end of the year, the tennis player entered the top 100 and received two ATP awards (“Progress of the Year” and “Tomorrow’s Star”), as well as the title of “Best Canadian Tennis Player”, pushing Milos Raonic in this nomination.
The next season, Shapovalov’s progress becomes even more evident. He moved for a short time from the position of Canada number one to Raonic and showed good results on the ATP Tour (Masters in particular), but so far he is not able to impose an equal fight on the representatives of the top 10. Denis finishes the year in 27th place.
2019 was a very uneven year for the tennis player. After a successful start he could not find his game for a long time, and the grass court and grass segment were not successful at all. However, by the fall Shapovalov reached the peak, winning his first ATP title in Stockholm, and then for the first time he made it to the Masters final in Paris, where he lost to Novak Djokovic.
The ranking position (and by the end of the season Denis was able to rise to the 15th position) allowed him, along with Felix Auger-Allassim, to start the 2020 ATP Team Cup, where the Canadian team reached the semifinals. Shapovalov would later renew his own record at the Australian Open, advancing to the quarterfinals. Despite the fact that this season did not bring him any titles, the results he demonstrated at major tournaments allowed the Canadian to make his debut in the top 10.
