TennisSection previews the 2023 Acapulco Open as Taylor Fritz takes on Denis Shapovalov in the Round of 16 on Wednesday, March 1, 2023.
Will Taylor Fritz get the win? Will Denis Shapovalov pull off the upset? This will be an interesting one, where we have the new world no. 5 taking on the talented Canadian. Who will triumph and move through to the quarterfinals at the 2023 Acapulco Open?
Taylor Fritz barely came through a tough opening round with John Isner, but managed to pull out the win and stay extremely consistent in the tightest moments. Although Denis Shapovalov has historically given him some trouble, I don’t think their past meetings will have much bearing here as the American looks to move through to the last eight at the 2023 Acapulco Open.
Denis Shapovalov took down Miomir Kecmanovic in three sets. He definitely looked shaky, but he was the better player on court and he’ll like his chances coming up against Taylor Fritz. Though he certainly isn’t the favorite, Shapovalov at his best can be a scary player, so let’s see if he can reach his potential and challenge Fritz for a place in the quarterfinals here at the 2023 Acapulco Open.
Taylor Fritz and Denis Shapovalov have met 7 times before, with Denis Shapovalov leading the head to head 5-2. Despite the clear deficit in favor of Shapovalov, Fritz lost to Shapovalov multiple times before hitting his stride while Shapovalov was already a top player. I think Shapovalov will have his chances here, but Fritz will be too strong in the end with his consistent serving and rally tolerance as he looks to book his spot in the quarterfinals of the 2023 Acapulco Open.
