Denis Shapovalov vs Radu Albot, Head-to-Head, Preview, Betting Tips and Live Stream- Korea Open 2022

On Friday, Denis Shapovalov, the fourth seed, will play Radu Albot in the 2022 Korea Open quarterfinals.

Shapovalov faced Jaume Munar in the second round after receiving a bye in the opening round. The Canadian broke serve in the seventh game to take a 4-3 lead, but was broken again right away in the next game. Nevertheless, he was able to prevail by taking the set’s final three games to seal the opener. Later on, when the score was 5-3, Munar served to stay in the match and saved a few match points for a hold of service. The Spaniard just postponed the inevitable, though. The next game was Shapovalov’s to end the match, which he did to the score of 7-5, 6-4. For the first time since the Italian Open in May, he has finally advanced to the quarterfinals of a competition.

Hiroki Moruya was defeated in the first round by Radu Albot, setting up a second-round matchup with Steve Johnson. The Moldovan fell behind 5-2 in the first set before going on a four-game comeback to take the lead at 6-5. He was unable to finish the set, though, as he dropped service, forcing a tie-break. The 32-year-old was successful in forcing the set into a third tiebreak. Albot was in trouble at the beginning of the tiebreak because he was down 3-0. He did, however, win the following seven points to win the match 7-6 (3), 7-6 (3), and advance to his second year-round quarterfinal.

Denis Shapovalov vs Radu Albot Prediction

The Canadian will probably control how this match is conducted. Albot has the ability to provoke his opponent into making more mistakes thanks to his impressive retrieval skills and indomitable spirit during rallies. But because Shapovalov played better in the previous round, he will be the favourite to win in the quarterfinals as well.
