Denis Shapovalov has many interests in his life and one of them is rapping. The Canadian sensation was asked to perform on court 1 year ago in Indian Wells soon after one of his matches. The result was not great, but still it was very entertaining to see.
However, Denis has dramatically improved his rapping skills and having so much time during the global pandemic, he decided to release his own song with a decisively better result: “Night Train.”
During a recent interview with Tennis Majors, Denis talked about the reaction to his album to say:
“I haven’t heard from other players too much, maybe a couple that they like it. But overall it’s been pretty positive. I had so much free time on my hands, so many songs, so I just figured, why not just pull one out and see if the world vibes with it.
I’ve got a huge passion for music, I’m not trying to do anything with it other than just release the music and hopefully some people like it, some people can relate to it and just vibe to it.”
Denis will play for the first time in his career against Soon-Woo Kwon in the second round of the US Open
