During an interview with ATP, Denis Shapovalov was asked who is the player that looks best in an all-white outfit. "I think Roger," Shapovalov answered. "It just looks clean on him." But, the Canadian's answer didn't satisfy the camera operator.

"Could you say a current player?" Then, Shapovalov reacted with a loud "how dare you!?". "He is retired," the cameraman added. The producer then intervened. "We agree with you but has to be one you guys play." Shapovalov followed up.

"Oh my goodness. You didn't just say that. You just broke everybody's hearts."

Shapovalov looks up to the Big Three

In 2020, Denis Shapovalov expressed his admiration for Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic.

"As a fan of the sport, it is super interesting watching Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer battling for Major titles and weeks at the top. We are trying to stop them, but they are really good. Regardless of their achievements, they will be remembered as the greatest players of all time.

It is exciting to have them around, fighting for legacy and records. Also, players like Daniil Medvedev and Dominic Thiem are pushing them to the limits, which is great," Denis Shapovalov said. Yet, it's worth noting that Denis Shapovalov is respectful of the Big Three rather than a fan.

"I was staying with Felix Auger-Aliassime at his house, and I woke up the morning of the match, and there was a poster of Rafa right there. I made a joke and said, 'It's gotta go.' Felix had taken it off the wall when I came home after beating Rafa. A little bit of bromance began right there," Denis Shapovalov said.
