World No. 14 Denis Shapovalov aims to lead Canada to winning the ATP Cup title as he feels his side is one of the top teams at the inaugural event. Shapovalov, 20, delivered a big performance against world No. 7 Alexander Zverev as he saw off the German 6-2 6-2 to force a deciding rubber in the tie.
Shapovalov then came up big in the deciding rubber as he and Felix Auger-Aliassime beat 2019 French Open champions Kevin Krawietz and Andreas Mies 6-3 7-6 (4). With the win over Germany, Canada now owns a 2-1 record in Group F as they hope to make the knockout stage and travel from Brisbane to Sydney.
"I'm really happy to get the win and hopefully we can go through. I feel like we're definitely one of the top teams, and I feel like we definitely deserve to go to Sydney. Hopefully, if we do get that chance, we can do some really big damage," Shapovalov said, per the ATP Cup.
