Last edition he made quite an impression in Rotterdam and he has continued that line this year, certainly on hard court. We are very happy he will present again in 2020.”
Return to Rotterdam
Earlier this year Denis Shapovalov debuted at the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tounament. He reached the quarter final, in which Stan Wawrinka proved to be too strong. In the first round he beat Franko Skugor, in the second round Tomas Berdych.
First tournament win
In October Shapovalov won his first title on the ATP Tour, on the Stockholm hard court. It turned out to be the prelude to a good autumn, two weeks later he was again in the final, now of the Paris ATP 1000 tournament. Novak Djokovic proved to be too strong , but he did manage to reach the top 20. Normally, he would be the leader of the NextGen ATP Finals in Milan, but Shapovalov chose to let that tournament pass after 26 tournament participations this calendar year.
Denis Shapovalov is after Daniil Medvedev, Gael Monfil, Stan Wawrinka and David Goffin the fifth announced participant in the 47th ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament, that will be held from 8 until 16 February 2020 at Rotterdam Ahoy.
