In press conference, looking to the clay-court events, Denis Shapovalov said: "It's kind of a good part of the season for me, I think. I think I have proven myself on the dirt. I see that I can play on it and beat good players on it.
So I'm really looking forward to. Obviously it's a little bit of a different change of pace. Going to have to play a little bit differently than these couple of weeks. Yeah, I'm looking forward to it. I have had good success last year. It's going to be a good opportunity for me. "
