Cameron Norrie v Corentin Moutet Head to Head
Norrie and Moutet have never faced off in any competitive competition before this.
Norrie Showing Fine Clay Fettle
Norrie hasn’t played in every clay court competition he could have this season, but when he has, the Brit has looked to make the results count.
It started with his appearance at the Barcelona Open where Norrie registered shock wins over three opponents – Salvatore Caruso, Karen Khachanov and David Goffin – to make it to the quarterfinal. There it was against a rampaging Rafael Nadal did he finally lose.
This was followed by his best ever performance on clay when he mustered wins over four players in the row to make the final in Estoril. A fighting, three-set loss to Albert Ramos-Vinolas followed.
And after opting out of the Madrid Masters, Norrie featured in the Rome qualifiers where he overcame Marco Cecchinato and defeated Roberto Carballes Baena to make it to round two.
For a player who had a 9-12 win-loss on clay before the start of this season, Norrie has already achieved great heights in 2021. Can he continue to shine on dirt?
Moutet No Pushover This Season
The 22-year-old Moutet touched a career-best ranking of 67th in the world earlier this season and that has been down to his semifinal appearance at the Murray River Open in 2021.
There he had registered wins over Frances Tiafoe and Grigor Dimitrov before falling to Felix Auger-Aliassime in the last four.
Since then, Moutet’s performances have been there and thereabouts without being very explosive. At the Barcelona Open, for instance, he overcame Dominic Koepfer and Dan Evans to make the third round.
Similarly, he was a quarterfinalist at the Estoril Open and coincidentally lost to Ramos-Vinolas too, the same player who would later go on to defeat Norrie in the final of that tournament.
Having come into this season on the back of a 9-17 win-loss record on clay, Moutet has already done well on this surface. These signs of improvement should augur well for the times to come but would that be enough to get past the in-form British opponent he now faces?
Norrie v Moutet Prediction and Tip
Norrie starts a favourite here at 8/11 and given his solid results this season and the fact his opponent has typically not been at his best on clay we are backing the Brit to go the distance.
