Denis Shapovalov strikes a ball during a match against Andrey Rublev at the Saint Petersburg Open on October 17, 2020

Denis Shapovalov knocked out the men’s top ten with some recent early defeats, but the 21-year-old is on the verge of finishing the 2020 season confident he is at the top of the sport

The left-hander reached the quarter-finals of the Los Angeles Open, where he lost in five sets, and the following week he reached the semi-finals of the ATP Masters 1000 in Rome, where he lost in the last set of the tie-break

These results brought him to the top ten for the first time in his career, before early defeats at the French Open and in Germany and Austria, his ranking fell to 12

« I feel like I’m playing some tennis really well, » Shapovalov told reporters before the Sofia Open, where he is considered the number one.

« I think I’ve played really well throughout the season, and I’m really happy with where my game is. I feel like I’ve definitely improved and I feel like I’m doing well with these (senior) players.

« If I can’t reach the top ten again this season, I’ll definitely try to go to it next season. The important thing is that I feel like my level is with these people and I’m able to compete with anyone »

After suffering a third consecutive defeat in Vienna last month, Shapovalov decided to take a break and skip the Paris Masters Championship. Al Kindy said he was feeling refreshed again.

In the Bulgarian capital, he will be joined by fellow countryman and friend Felix Auger-Aliassim, seeded second.

“It’s definitely great for Canada and tennis in Canada,” Shapovalov said of 20-year-old Auger Aliassim.

“It is amazing to see both of us at the top of the lottery, and we hope it continues, inspiring a lot of Canadian children and continuing to develop sport in the country.”
