What’s at Stake?

Serbia and Canada will face off in the third match of the 2020 ATP Cup quarterfinals.

The winner of this matchup is going to secure a spot in the semifinals, moving one step closer to the first-ever ATP Cup title.

Serbia won the final edition of the World Team Cup in 2012, the last team competition organized by the ATP.

It was the national team’s second title, the first one coming in 2009.

This marked a dominant run for the Serbian team, which also won the 2010 Davis Cup title and finished runner-up in 2013.

This year’s ATP Cup provides them with a chance to reclaim the spot at the top.

Canada, meanwhile, could crown the rise of its young team.

The Canadian national team finished runner-up in last year’s Davis Cup, making it to the tournament’s final for the first time since 1913.

Team Canada could cement its spot as one of the new powerhouses in the tennis world.

Serbia

Team nomination: Novak Djokovic, Dulsan Lajovic, Nikola Milojevic, Nikola Cacic, Viktor Troicki.

The Serbian team aced its group, winning all three best of 3 series and seven out of nine matches.

The highlights include a 3-0 sweep of South Africa and a 2-1 win against France, one of the strongest teams in the tournament.

Novak Djokovic is in great form to start the year, winning his three singles matches without dropping a set.

He is joined by Dusan Lajovic in singles.

Veteran Viktor Troicki, who was part of Team Serbia’s lineup on all three international titles, is the leading player in doubles.

Serbia has one of the most experienced lineups in the tournament.

Canada

Team nomination: Dennis Shapovalov, Felix Auger-Aliassime, Steven Diez, Adil Shamasdin, Peter Polansky.

Team Canada’s lineup is once again led by its rising stars, Dennis Shapovalov and Felix Auger-Aliassime.

Following the impressive runner-up campaign in last year’s Davis Cup, the Canadian team was expected to be among the ATP Cup favorites.

Surprisingly, it narrowly escaped the group stage, winning two of three series.

The only loss, however, was a sweep at the hands of Team Australia, which proved to be quite costly.

In the end, Canada managed to advance as one of two second-place teams.

Shapovalov is in great form, having defeated ATP top 10 players Stefanos Tsitsipas and Alexander Zverev.

Serbia vs Canada – Head to Head and Predictions

This is a great opportunity to pick the underdog.

Despite its second-place finish in the group stage, Canada actually looks like the stronger team in this matchup.

Shapovalov will fight an uphill battle against Djokovic, the Serbian legend leading their head-to-head with a 4-0 record.

Auger-Aliassime, on the other hand, has an easier matchup against veteran Dusan Lajovic.

If Canada names the Shapovalov and Auger-Aliassime pairing for the doubles, it should have the edge for the decisive match.

Final score prediction: Canada, 2-1.
