Today’s afternoon has experienced one of the biggest surprises of the tennis season. Denis Shapovalov, showing off his status within the top-10, he was surprised in his debut in the ATP Gstaad 2021 before # 249, the Czech Vit Kopriva, which comes from the previous phase (2-6, 6-3, 6-2). Since Queen’s 2017 a player in the top-10 has not lost to someone so low ranked in an ATP tournament: on that occasion, Thanasi Kokkinakis defeated Milos Raonic. A surprising result in what is the first ATP tournament of the Czech tennis player, who in fact signed his first victory on the circuit in the first round.
