Canadian tennis player Denis Shapovalov commented on the defeat in the semifinals of the tournament in Miami.
“What was the best in my performance? Warm-up, it’s obvious. It’s always unpleasant to lose, but, of course, it was nice to go to court with my idol. I gave it all. Roger was on the other side of the court. I just tried to play as best I could, but he performed well today, had a great match, I couldn’t keep his level, so I will try to draw conclusions. I wanted to do four aces per game and hoped that he would do double.
No, I had plans that I discussed with the team. But in general, I just tried to play my tennis and be myself. I think I was not able to show my maximum. But therefore Roger is so good. He did not let me enter the game. This shows how experienced and strong a player he is, “the Tour press service quotes Denis.
