Did Denis Shapovalov miss his calling? According to him, the answer is no. This week in Dubai, the 21-year-old Canadian and his coach Mikhail Youzhny—a former world No. 8—made a painting of the coveted Dubai Duty Free Championships trophy.

“I didn’t take art in high school because I surely would have failed, so stay clear of it,” Shapovalov warns.

Seeded third, Shapovalov fell to qualifier Lloyd Harris, 7-6 (5), 6-4, 7-6 (6), in a high quality semifinal clash on Friday.
