Shapovalov tops Raonic

“I’m truly humbled to be recognized as Tennis Canada’s male player of the year and to be given the opportunity to represent my country on the ATP tour and as a member of our Davis Cup team,” said Shapovalov in a statement.

It’s been a busy awards season for Shapovalov, who was also voted the ATP’s Most Improved Player and named the ATP ‘Star of Tomorrow.’ “I definitely want to win an ATP tour title,” said Shapovalov while receiving his award at the ATP Finals.

Laurendeau said that Shapovalov and the 17-year-old Felix Auger-Aliassime are rising and will also become important Davis Cup players for Canada.
