There’s precious little between these players in the current ATP world rankings, with the 32 year-old Italian currently at number 12 in the world, with the 20 year-old Canadian just three places below him at 15.

Fognini and Shaovalov have played each other twice previously, with the young Canadian coming out on top on both occasions. 

In the first encounter, Shapovalov claimed a straight sets win – 6-3 7-5 – in the Rogers Cup second round on the outdoor hard courts at the Aviva Centre in Toronto in August 2018.

They faced each other gain just three weeks ago, with Shapovalov rallying to win 3-6 6-3 6-3 in the second round of the 2019 Rolex Paris Masters on the indoor hard courts at the Palais omnisports de Paris-Bercy in Paris.

Shapovalov would eventually reach the final in Paris, where he lost to Novak Djokovic. His recent results have been excellent, with him having won his first ATP Tour title in Stockholm and reached the semifinals in Winston-Salem and Chengdu in recent months.
