Frances Tiafoe v Cameron Norrie Head to Head
This will be the second meeting between the two players.
Cameron Norrie won their only previous meeting in straight sets. That was in a 2019 Challenger ITF Hopman Cup clash. Additionally, that match was on a hard court.
Tiafoe Prevails Against Fratangelo
Tiafoe overcame Bjorn Fratangelo to reach his second successive ATP quarterfinal. The 2018 champion needed three sets to overcome his American Foe.
Tiafoe started slowly. Despite saving two break points in the second game of the first set, Fratangelo broke him in the sixth game of the set to go 4-2 up. Tiafoe came back, winning the next four games to win the set 6-4.
A sole converted break point decided the second set in Fratangelo’s favor, forcing a third set in the match.
Tiafoe’s momentum came back in the third set. He dominated proceedings, capitalizing on 100% of his three break points while managing to rescue all the three break points that he faced. He eventually won the set 6-1 and the tie subsequently.
Tiafoe will be hoping to reach his second successive semifinal and add to his sole ATP title that came in this competition back in 2018.
Norrie Schools Mannarino
Norrie remained perfect in this competition after overcoming nine-time ATP semi-finalist Adrian Mannarino in straight sets.
Norrie started strong, going 3-0 up immediately in the first set. Despite being broken by the Frenchman in the subsequent game, he held on to claim the set 6-2.
The second set was a closer affair. Norrie started slowly and went 3-0 down. He fought back to even the tie and even rescued two break points that he faced in the eighth game of the set.
A break point that Norrie converted in the set’s penultimate game proved crucial, which helped to give him the second set 7-5 and avert an inevitable tiebreak.
The Brit, having had a mixed 2020, will be hoping to reach his first semifinal since 2019.
Tiafoe v Norrie Prediction and Tip
Tiafoe, with home advantage and prior tournament-winning experience, is the favorite in this tie. Norrie, however, performs better on hard courts than the American and could use that to his advantage.
Tiafoe should still be expected to win, but the Brit will offer a great resistance that may force a third set in the tie.
Tip: Match to have three sets: 11/8 (bet365)
