Bopanna-Shapovalov enter second round of US Open

Bopanna-Shapovalov enter second round of US Open”

Boppana-Shapovalov (23) had a lot more unforced errors than Krawietz-Mies (9) but it was their second serve success and break points conversion that helped them to the win. Fritz, who scored 80 per cent of his first serve points and was two points away from victory, stressed when he was sent to the match at 5-3 in Group D.

Shapovalov, 21, took his frustration out on his racket as momentum shifted in the third set, smashing it three times in a row on the court after one point.

The match played out precisely as one would anticipate from 2 of tennis's increasing skills with the 12th-seeded Canadian Shapovalov and 19th seeded American Fritz participated in a seesaw tussle.

Denis Shapovalov rallied late in the fourth set and won a five-set match between rising stars at the U.S. Open. After saving the first break point, he double-faulted to hand Fritz the break and a 5-3 lead. He wouldn't be as fortunate the next time he toed the line. With an opportunity to serve out the set, the American clinched the lead on his second chance with an unreturnable serve. I worked for the match and I deserved it and I absolutely choked it, which is something that I can admit because I pride myself on being clutch and serving these matches out and playing well when it really matters. Shapovalov did not give up, and with a loss of 3-5, Fritz hit a long backhand at a breakpoint.

The left-hander is now 3-0 lifetime against the 22-year-old Fritz.

In a match that saw 11 serve breaks, it was Joffin who blocked Krajnovic's strength to win 6-1, 7-6 (5), 6-4 in two hours and five minutes.

Goffin had the first four matches of the match, winning 16 points out of 22. I was down first, then up in the second and third, then he came back, then I broke back. Both won their one and only ATP titles in 2019.
