Australian Open 2022: Denis Shapovalov vs. Soon-woo Kwon Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2022 Australian Open as Denis Shapovalov (14) meets Soon-woo Kwon in the Second Round on Wednesday January 19th, 2022.

Both Denis Shapovalov and Soon-woo Kwon were impressive in their First Round victories here at the 2022 Australian Open and will be looking to build towards those performances. Shapovalov, the fourteenth seed will have his eyes set on a deep run here to re-establish himself in the top 10 in the world, can he get the win?

Denis Shapovalov is the fourteenth seed here at the 2022 Australian Open and is also ranked #14 on the ATP Tour. The talented lefty had an outstanding campaign at the ATP Cup to start the year and his confidence is very high entering the first Grand Slam of the year. He was surprisingly pushed to four very close sets in his opening round win against Laslo Djere, but showed tremendous resilience to get the win despite his playing at his best. The Canadian will have to be much improved if he is to get past his next opponent, Soon-woo Kwon but enters this match as the big favorite given his high-level experience.

Soon-woo Kwon is unseeded here at the 2022 Australian Open and is ranked #54 in the world. The South Korean star is one of the most talented young players on the circuit and has been much improved over the past few seasons. He overcame a huge test in the First Round, defeating young star Holger Rune in five high-quality sets, and will be very confidence heading into this difficult match against Denis Shapovalov. Despite being the underdog, he is not one to be underestimated and the stage is set for a very close battle here.

This will be the second meeting between the two players on the ATP Tour, with Denis Shapovalov leading the head to head 1-0. The pair met at the 2020 US Open, with the Canadian winning after dropping the first set. I am expecting another close match, filled with very exciting and high-quality tennis, with Shapovalov coming away with the win. His experience will be key here, and he has a bit more firepower from the baseline than his opponent Soon-woo Kwon. It won’t be easy, but Shapovalov will win here, advancing to the Third Round at the 2022 Australian Open.
