Djokovic comes into the Shanghai Masters having received a bye in the opening round. He’s in excellent form after beating the Australian qualifier John Millman 6-3 6-2 in the final of the Japan Open on Sunday in a tournament in which he won all five matches without dropping a set and showing that he had fully recovered from the injury that saw him drop out of the US Open last month.

The 20 year-old Shapovalov beat the American Frances Tiafoe in straight sets, 6-4 6-2, in the first round in a convincing win.

The players have met twice previously, both times this year, with Djokovic coming out on top on both occasions. The world ranked number 36 did take a set off Djokovic at the Australian Open, but still lost 6-3 6-4 4-6 6-0. It was more straightforward for Djokovic at the ATP Masters 1000 Rome in June with a routine 6-1 6-3 win.
