Shapo having fun rappin’, so don’t be hatin’ (video)

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – Denis Shapovalov loves music, so he’s enjoying himself writing rhyme in rappin’ time.

And if you don’t like it, the 19-year-old doesn’t really care what you think.

As he points out, it’s just a hobby, not his job. And he’s just expressing himself, something he wishes more players would do.

But in the world we live in, everyone weighs in on every single thing.

And so the social-media music critics out there have been quick to weigh in with their opinion on the quality of his lines.

The Canadian had promised on-court host Blair Henley at Indian Wells that if he won his next match, he’d have something prepared and perform it on the court.

And so, he did. 

Took guts, to be honest.

Sunscreen time

On an off day, Shapovalov made a video in which he was liberally slathered with sunscreen.

Shapo just wanna have fun

Here’s what Shapovalov had to say about his extracurriculars, immediately after his opening Miami Open win over Dan Evans.

The great thing about the mixed zone is that you don’t get a player two hours later – suited and booted and with all the match adrenaline washed away in the shower.

You can see how jazzed he still is.

He plays another rising talent, Andrey Rublev, later Monday in the third round.
