Denis Shapovalov secures Vienna Open final over Coric

Denis Shapovalov continued his excellent Vienna Open run by beating Borna Coric in the semi-final 7-6(4) 6-0.

The Canadian will face Daniil Medvedev in the final tomorrow hoping to play another great match and win the trophy. He's been playing excellent tennis all week long and it's been a trend in the past few weeks with him looking much sharper than earlier in the year.

As expected it was a rather close affair in the opening set with neither Coric nor Shapovalov giving much away. There were battles in each game but for the most part, both were quite confident on serve and we didn't see any break points.

It was settled in the tiebreak with Shapovalov proving only a little bit better but better nonetheless 7-4. He was far more aggressive and ultimately that came in handy in the tiebreak. The second set was one where Coric fell apart a bit.

The Croatian did not serve so well and he certainly did not play well from the baseline either. He sprayed far too many errors against the once again solid Shapovalov who eased his way into the final with a bagel 6-0 in the second set.
