Bonzi vs Shapovalov Prediction on June 22, 2022
One of the last men’s tennis tournaments before Wimbledon 2022, the 2022 Mallorca Championship (Mallorca Open, ATP 250), entered the 1/8 finals. One of the duels for a progression to the Top 8 will feature Benjamin Bonzi and Denis Shapovalov. The match will begin on Wednesday, June 22, at 12 p.m. local time (1 p.m. Moscow time).
Canadian Denis Shapovalov will face Frenchman Benjamin Bonzi in the second round of the event in Mallorca. Despite two losses in a row on the grass, the bookmakers with Android apps are backing the North American player. The current form of Bonzi The Mallorca tournament marks Bonzi’s third grass appearance in the season. The Frenchman was stronger than Feliciano López and Arthur Rinderknech in Stuttgart, but he withdrew from the match against Oscar Otte due to injury. In Halle, the Frenchman immediately confronted Stefanos Tsitsipas, fought him hard, and even won the first set 6:1, but ultimately lost the match. Bonzi opened the competition on the Balearic Islands with a match against Alejandro Tabilo, which was not completed owing to the Chilean’s unwillingness, but everything went Bonzi’s way in two sets, with a score of 6:3, 4:2 in his favor. The Frenchman served 4 aces and had 2 doubles in his match against Tabilo, winning 79% of the points on the first serve and 63% on the second. Bonzi’s statistics at the reception were as follows: 37%/43%. The current form of Shapovalov The Canadian, a seeded player in Mallorca, is in the second round, but his form is deteriorating, with 5 losses in a row, including 2 on grass. Shapovalov fell in 2 sets to the German Otte in Stuttgart, then in 3 sets to the American Tommy Paul in London. Despite his recent poor statistics, the Canadian is widely regarded as the favorite in the upcoming duel. It’s worth noting that, despite winning junior Wimbledon in 2016, Shapovalov had a poor record on grass until last season. In 2021, with an 8:3 ratio, he reached the semi-finals of the London and Wimbledon tournaments. Shapovalov, nevertheless, is plainly struggling with his shape right now.
In terms of playing experience, Bonzi has an advantage over his opponent; furthermore, he has already played one match in Mallorca and performed admirably. Shapovalov’s current shape is alarming: 5 defeats in a row, including 2 on grass. He is potentially stronger than his opponent, and he showed last season that the grass surface is not ‘alien’ to the Canadian, as they say, but his momentum doesn’t instill confidence in his staff and fans. We believe Bonzi has a strong chance of defeating a Top 20 player; Shapovalov is clearly not at his best right now, therefore, we’ll choose to highlight an outsider and suggest the following option for betting: Bonzi to win with an odd of 2.40 at SBOBET.
