TennisSection previews the 2022 Citi Open as Denis Shapovalov takes on J.J. Wolf in the Round of 32 on Wednesday, August 3rd, 2022.
Will Denis Shapovalov get the win? Will J.J. Wolf pull off the upset? This will be a fascinating one, where we have the shaky star taking on an American prodigy. Who will triumph and move on to the Round of 16 at the 2022 Citi Open?
Denis Shapovalov has had a real rough go of things, struggling to piece together even a single match win since his quarterfinal run in Rome. As he faces J.J. Wolf, he’ll only have an uphill battle ahead. While he possesses the talent and skills of a World No. 1, his mentality and inability to maintain a consistent level hinders him from even consistently defeating top 100 players. I fear his losing streak might only continue as he looks to get things back on track at the 2022 Citi Open.
J.J. Wolf got a great win taking down Taro Daniel, a player in quite good form. Wolf will be excited to return to the hard courts as he looks to make a good impression on the ATP Tour. Denis Shapovalov, who while a top ranked player, has not shown his best level lately. Even though he may have improved since the grass, Wolf knows this is his best chance to pounce at the 2022 Citi Open.
Denis Shapovalov and J.J. Wolf have never met before, with this being their first career meeting. It’s a solid matchup for Wolf, who is not only a great defender, but a player with an arsenal to take advantage of a player who’s not in good shape. While it may be difficult, I expect him to take his game to the next level as he looks to advance to the Round of 16 at the 2022 Citi Open.
