Cincinnati Open 2021: Denis Shapovalov vs. Benoit Paire Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2021 Cincinnati Open as Denis Shapovalov takes on Benoit Paire in the Round of 32 on Tuesday, August 17th, 2021.

Will Benoit Paire be able to get one of the biggest wins of his career in the last few years as he aims to make a statement? Will Denis Shapovalov be able to get off to a strong start here at the Cincinnati Open after a sub-par week in Toronto last week? Both players can win this match if they are at their best, but only one will make their way to the Round of 16 of the 2021 Cincinnati Open. Who will it be?

Benoit Paire put on a solid performance in the Round of 64, beating the up and coming Miomir Kecmanovic by coming back from a set down to win in 3 sets 5-7/6-3/6-2. Benoit Paire has been finding some form lately, being able to get himself some wins under his belt, compared to the first half of the year where he would lose always in the first round. Benoit can return anything and he has amazing shots in his arsenal when he is at his best. However, it is always hard to know what type of Benoit Paire will show up in a match. How will the experienced Frenchman fare against the young Denis Shapovalov?

Denis Shapovalov is looking to bounce back after a very tough loss in his first match at the Toronto Open last week where he got destroyed 1-6/4-6 by Frances Tiafoe in front of his home crowd. Denis is better than this and he should not be playing so badly, but this is what we see a lot from Denis. Some weeks he is on fire, and other weeks he is so easily beatable. Denis needs to get some good wins under his belt if he wants to go into the US Open at the end of the month with some confidence, but will he be able to beat the somewhat in form Benoit Paire here at the 2021 Cincinnati Open?

Denis Shapovalov and Benoit Paire have met 3 times before, with Benoit Paire leading the head to head 2-1. They have always played incredibly tight matches, and they are always entertaining. However, they have not played since 2019. Since then, Denis has risen so much and become a top 10 player, whilst Benoit has been fighting just to get a win in an early round. Benoit has been finding form in the last month, but he has still lost 22 matches this year and only won 9. Denis will bounce back here at the 2021 Cincinnati Open and use his superb lefty game and one-handed backhand to get himself in the Round of 16 of the 2021 Cincinnati Open.
