Norrie, A Barcelona Open Quarter-Finalist

For a man not known for his prowess on clay, Norrie surprised a few last week by reaching the quarter-final in Barcelona. And in the course of the week, he beat both Karen Khachanov and David Goffin, although he was aided in his defeat of the latter when the Belgian had to withdraw midway through their match with injury,

H is run predictably was ended by Rafael Nadal in straight sets – the same man who ended his interest in the Australian Open at the third round stage – but he can still take heart from that performance heading into Estoril.

With also a third round appearance in Miami under his best this year, Norrie can have hopes of breaking back into the top 50 again.

Norrie will also hope to play himself into the type of form which will enable him to improve his poor record in the French Open next month, a tournament in which he has never been beyond the second round.

2018 Estoril Winner Sousa Hoping for Turnaround

Sousa has found memories of Estoril from three years ago, because it was here he won the last of his three career titles, in front of his home fans beating Frances Tiafoe in the final.

A lot has changed in the interim though – the fans are gone, at least for the time being because of Covid – and Sousa, who was ranked 44 in the world at the time has since dropped out of the top 100.

Having skipped the Australian Open this year, Sousa played the South American clay court swing but suffered three successive first round defeats.

He broke that sequence by reaching the second round in Miami, but his troubles resumed on clay, where he lost in the first round in Sardinia, and failed to qualify for Monte Carlo.

He then failed to qualify for the Serbia Open, but then took his place in the main draw as lucky loser. However, he was then beaten first time out by the Japanese world 126, Taro Daniel, in straight sets.

Norrie v Sousa Prediction and Tip

Although Sousa has home court advantage and won this tournament three years ago, he is out of form at the moment and that will make Norrie the favourite to beat him.

Tip: Norrie to win: 1/3 (bet365)
