Tennis Prediction of the Day Denis Shapovalov vs Grigor Dimitrov
Denis Shapovalov is in a rather modest form, although he started well this year.
But the scandal at the Australian Open and the elimination of the first round probably affected him, last week in Montpellier playing very weak and losing in two short sets with Pospisil.
Grigor Dimitrov is also in poor form, in Montpellier losing in the first round with Barerre, although obviously he started the big favorite.
But I think that Dimitrov can raise his level here, try to take at least one set and cover a 3.5 game handicap, my prediction going to this idea at a bet offered by Betano.
