Evgeniy is also a tennis player and served as an inspiration to Denis. He trained his younger brother in his early days.

Denis would usually accompany Evgeniy and their mother to the educational gathering and learn from them when he was younger.

Evgeniy is out of the media and kept his life private, so there is not much information available.

Shapovalov’s Family

Denis Shapovalov was born on April 15, 1999, in Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel, and is 25 years old as of 2024.

His parents are Viktor Shapovalov, a Russian, and Tessa Shapovalov, a Ukrainian.

Shapovalov and his father have a good relationship. He has been a rock for Shapovalov since the beginning of his road to becoming a successful tennis player. However, little is known about him because he has a private social status.

When the Soviet Union collapsed, his mother moved to Israel with his father and later became a tennis coach there. As a result, it would not be incorrect to say that tennis is in Denis Shapovalov’s blood.

Shapovalov started playing tennis at the age of five, and his mother opened a tennis academy in Vaughan to help her son and others.

She owns a tennis academy in Canada and is also a professional tennis coach, mostly educating young athletes and helping them to develop their skills.

She was also a tennis player in her early days and represented the Soviet Union.

Due to his family background, Shapovalov is bilingual and can speak Russian fluently, which led him to give his first-ever interview in Russian.

Denis Shapovalov’s girlfriend is Mirjam Bjorklund, a Swedish tennis player born in 1998 in Stockholm, Sweden. They are in a relationship for about 4 years. They celebrated their three-year anniversary on 26th June 2022.

She also made it into the top 300 in the WTA rankings but has since slid slightly. Mirjam and Denis both play tennis all over the world and occasionally practice together.
