Third seeded Canadian Denis Shapovalov will play unseeded Tommy Paul of the USA in the Final of the 2021 Stockholm Open. The match will be played on Saturday November 13th, 2021 at 11:00am EST.

Denis Shapovalov and Tommy Paul will do battle in the Final of the 2021 Stockholm Open as they both aim to end their seasons off with a bang in their final match. Shapovalov is the big favorite on paper and is gunning for his second career title as he aims to get back into the top 10. Can the inconsistent American cause the big upset in his first ever ATP Final? Or will the highly favored Canadian lift the trophy?

Denis Shapovalov is ranked #18 in the world and has had a very inconsistent year in 2021, which is disappointing after his outstanding end to the 2020 season. He ended the year in a dominant year, breaking into the top 10 for the first time and big things were expected this season. However, despite some good results he has not been anywhere near as consistent as he would like and has seen his ranking slide. He has an opportunity to end the year on a high note by winning his second career title here at the 2021 Stockholm Open. The Canadian star has been outstanding here so far, notably defeating Felix Auger-Aliassime in a high quality Semi. In this sort of form he is expected to breeze past Tommy Paul, and enters this match as the big favorite.

Tommy Paul has been having the tournament of his life here at the 2021 Stockholm Open, and has already reached a major milestone with this being his first ever ATP Final. After a poor year the American has found form at the right time, showing tremendous heart to overcome Frances Tiafoe in the Semi-Finals, after his opponent served for the match at 6-5 in the second set. While he doesn’t have any Finals experience he has been in great form and will be backing himself to get the win here over Denis Shapovalov.

This should be a thrilling match based on the two men’s form, but only one man is likely to win and that is Denis Shapovalov. The former champion here, having won two years ago is the much more experienced player at this level, and is simply better on this surface. He has more firepower than Tommy Paul and I expect him to win rather comfortably here, claiming his second ever Stockholm Open title.
