Canada’s Denis Shapovalov, or ‘Shapo’ as he’s known to his friends, is definitely part of ‘Generation Now’, only just turned 20 he’s already been ranked as high as 20 in the world.
He made his mark on the tennis world in 2016 when he become the Wimbledon Boys Singles Champion and hasn’t looked back since. On the ATP World Tour he’s now regularly mixing with, and beating the best in the world.
Asked who would play him in a movie he chose ‘Thor’ Chris Hemsworth, we can see the similarity...although Denis may need to beef up those muscles slightly!
We told you in 2017 when he first visited The Boodles that he would be one to watch so we are delighted to welcome him back to join us in 2019 as one of the new stars of mens’ tennis.
