Ote beat Shapovalov: first win against top 20 players

Oscar Otte of Cologne reached the quarter-finals of the lawn tournament in Stuttgart after a strong performance. The 28-year-old defeated the world number 16. Denis Shapovalov (Canada) 7-6 (8-6), 7-6 (7-4). For the first time in his career, Otte, who now meets Frenchman Benjamin Bonzi, defeated a top 20 player.

“I was a little nervous in the first set, but then I caught myself and focused on my strengths,” said Otte B. sarvastv: “It will be a tough game against Bonzi again.”

After 98 minutes, Ote converted his first match point, reaching the quarter-finals on the ATP tour for the third time this year. Recently, the world is number 61. In Munich also reached the round of the last four and there later lost to French Open semifinalist Holger Rune (Norway).

On the other hand, Jan-Lenard Struff was eliminated. In continuation of Wednesday’s interrupted match, Warsteiner lost to sixth-seeded Italian Lorenzo Sonego 6:7 (2:7), 6:7 (4:7). Struff broke a toe in Miami in late March. He missed the entire clay court season, including highlights at the French Open.
