Astana Open 2022: Denis Shapovalov vs. Borna Coric Tennis Pick and Prediction

Astana Open 2022: Denis Shapovalov vs. Borna Coric Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2022 Tokyo Open as Borna Coric takes on Denis Shapovalov in the quarterfinals on Friday, October 7th, 2022.

Will Borna Coric get the win? Will Denis Shapovalov pull off the upset? This will be a fascinating one, where the recharged Croat takes on the flashy Canadian. Who will triumph and move through to the semifinals at the 2022 Tokyo Open?

Borna Coric has been playing some great tennis since his resurgence in Cincinnati where he became the champion, and now he’s on another solid run here in Tokyo. If he wants to take out Denis Shapovalov, he’s going to have to keep up his level, as Shapovalov has been playing at an improved level himself lately, but Coric still remains the clear favorite here, if he can serve big, I fully expect him to take charge and book himself a place in the last four here at the 2022 Tokyo Open.

Denis Shapovalov has been on a good run of form lately, playing an unbelievably high quality match with Andrey Rublev in the US Open, pushing him back to a high level where he’s made another quarterfinal run here in Tokyo. If he wants to take down Borna Coric, though, he’ll need to play at his very best, and I just don’t see him being able to break down Coric, who can not only be insanely consistent but a player who can play some counterpushing and aggressive tennis if needed. I don’t see the Canadian doing all too much here as Coric looks to reach the semifinals of the 2022 Tokyo Open.

Borna Coric and Denis Shapovalov have met twice before, with Borna Coric leading the head to head 2-0. While their matches have both been somewhat competitive, Coric convincingly won both, and considering their current positions on the ATP Tour, I expect Coric to put on a dominant display of tennis to move through to the semifinals at the 2022 Tokyo Open.
