TennisSection previews the 2022 Cincinnati Open as Tommy Paul takes on Denis Shapovalov in the Round of 32 on Wednesday, August 17th, 2022.
Will Tommy Paul get the win? Will Denis Shapovalov pull off the upset? This will be a fascinating one, where we have one of the form players in the tournament taking on a young talent looking to get back to the top. Who will triumph and move on to the Round of 16 at the 2022 Cincinnati Open?
Tommy Paul got a great win over Jenson Brooksby to kick things off here in Cincinnati, and I expect him to keep on rolling. He had a great week in Montreal, pulling off a big win over Carlos Alcaraz before eventually crashing out in the quarterfinals. As he comes up against Denis Shapovalov, he knows it’s a massive opportunity to reach the latter stages of the tournament where he would face another of the games giants in Daniil Medvedev, let’s see if he can keep it up and book himself a spot in that spicy matchup here at the 2022 Cincinnati Open.
Denis Shapovalov got the win over Grigor Dimitrov, a much needed win after a really tough season, although he didn’t play his best, it was enough and could give him some confidence going forward. In order to take down Tommy Paul, there’s really no hope for him aside from playing his very best tennis, Paul is incredibly quick around the court, and I don’t see Shapovalov being able to play aggressively enough to outlast the American at the 2022 Cincinnati Open.
Tommy Paul and Denis Shapovalov have met twice before, with Tommy Paul leading the head to head 2-0. Their first meeting came in the final of Stockholm which saw Paul win his first title, followed by a match in Queens on the grass this year, with these two wins under his belt on top of their respective forms, I only find it inevitable that Paul will cruise his way through this one where he will earn a place in the last 16 to face the top seed here at the 2022 Cincinnati Open.
