TennisSection previews the 2022 Vienna Open as Denis Shapovalov takes on Borna Coric in the semifinals on Saturday, October 29th, 2022.
Will Denis Shapovalov get the win? Will Borna Coric pull off the upset? This will be a fascinating one, where we have an evenly matched semifinal with two clashing playstyles. Who will triumph and move through to the final at the 2022 Vienna Open?
Denis Shapovalov got a very good win over Dan Evans, taking him out 6-3 6-3 to move through to the last four where he faces yet another tough opponent in Borna Coric. Coric landed a pair of very difficult wins lately, and you have to question the fitness aspect in this match, Coric may not have the legs to deal with Shapovalov’s rampant aggression and power. Let’s see if the Canadian can follow up his recent impressive results and move through to the final round at the 2022 Vienna Open.
Borna Coric took down Hubert Hurkacz in an epic match, winning in a 3rd set tiebreaker, following up his win over Tsitsipas in a 3rd set tiebreaker the day prior. As he comes up against Denis Shapovalov, he’ll know he’s not out yet, but with the two matches he’s had to play, it’s difficult to expect Coric to continue his level and take out yet another quality opponent. Let’s see if he’s up for the task and manages to pull off yet another upset to book his place in the final here at the 2022 Vienna Open.
Denis Shapovalov and Borna Coric have met three times before, with Borna Coric leading the head to head 2-1. Coric got a pair of wins over the Canadian prior to his injury, and since then Shapovalov got his revenge on Coric, just taking him out in Tokyo last week. As they head into this one, that match will surely be in the back of both of their minds, but Coric is playing at a higher level himself, so let’s see who can take this evenly-matched contest to move through to the final of the 2022 Vienna Open.
