Denis Shapovalov won his second Davis Cup rubber of the weekend in Edmonton to secure Canada’s spot in the 2018 World Group. The 18-year-old Richmond Hill native defeated Ramkumar Ramanathan 6-3, 7-6(1), 6-3.

Shapovalov started the match on fire. He won the opening ten points to go ahead 2-0, eventually holding for 3-0 after only five minutes of play. He continued to cruise through the set, only being challenged on serve in the latter stages, and would serve out the opener 6-3.

Set 2 was tighter on serve for both players. Ramanathan earned the first three break points of the set as he went up 0-40 on Shapovalov’s serve at 6-5. Shapovalov rallied from behind to get to deuce. After saving a fourth set point, Shapovalov got the set into a tiebreak and returned to his early dominant form. He captured the tiebreak 7-1 and gave Canada a two sets lead.

Shapovalov returned to his best form in the third set as he broke Ramanathan for a 4-2 and never looked back. He gave an emphatic hold of serve to close the match 6-3 in the third.

With Shapovalov’s victory, Canada is secured a spot in the Davis Cup World Group for 2018. Their next opponent will be drawn on Wednesday, September 20.
