'Shapo' on fire

The Canadian is 9-2 since the ATP Tour resumed in August, having reached his first Grand Slam quarter-final at the US Open. He will hope to maintain his consistency against Schwartzman, who only made 17 unforced errors against Nadal.

Diego on Shapovalov

"Denis [is a] great player," Schwartzman said. "He's a very good guy. He's playing every week better and better. He's going to be tough.

"It's a different game than Rafa. He maybe has three, four games unreal and then you have a chance because he [makes] mistakes. But he's playing [consistently] the past few weeks, so it's going to be really tough."

Underdog

Coming into the match against Nadal, Schwartzman trailed by a whopping margin of 0-9 in the head-to-head. But that statistic was thrown out of the window as the 8th seed put up arguably his finest performance ever to send Nadal packing.


Denis Top 10?

Shapovalov has been making excellent use of his wide-swinging serve this week, winning a lot of easy points on his first serve.

He is set to make his top 10 debut on Monday, unless Schwartzman wins in Rome.

H2H

Diego Schwartzman and Denis Shapovalov have never faced each other on tour, so the head-to-head between the two players currently stands at 0-0.

Doing work!

Denis Shapovalov meanwhile is into his fifth career Masters 1000 semis, in what has been a good claycourt swing for him so far. The Canadian got the better of Grigor Dimitrov in three sets on Saturday to set up the clash with Schwartzman.

Upset

Argentina’s Diego Schwartzman did the unthinkable by knocking out the 'King of Clay' Rafael Nadal in the quarterfinals of the 2020 Rome Masters. Now for a spot in the final, he will take on Canada’s Denis Shapovalov on Sunday.
