Dominic Thiem v Cameron Norrie Head to Head
Their only previous meeting came at the 2018 Acapulco Open where Thiem needed three sets to get past Norrie and move into the second round.
Thiem Making Slow Progress Back
The Grand Slam win last year seemed to have taken a lot out of Thiem and a series of poor results and tennis breaks meant all eyes are now on the world number four as he prepares for Roland-Garros. It’s a tournament he has made the final of twice and one he was expected to take over winning from Rafael Nadal once the Spaniard was done.
Instead, Thiem’s struggles have meant he will not start out in Paris as one of the favourites – other than Nadal that is – unless he can drill in a solid showing in this competition.
Thiem starts off with a semifinal appearance at the Madrid Masters where he lost to Alexander Zverev and a third round loss at the Italian Open where Lorenzo Sonego took him down in three.
He now returns to a competition he has played just once earlier – in 2018 – and won it that season. A repeat of that result could go a long way in getting Thiem in the right mindset but first up, he needs to get past a tricky opponent.
Norrie Brilliant on Clay
He seems like a different player altogether on clay this season does Norrie.
Before the start of this season, Norrie had won a sum total of nine matches on clay in his career. This year alone, Norrie has won as many with a tournament still to be played in all probabilities.
It started with his victories over Salvatore Caruso, Karen Khachanov and David Goffin in Barcelona that the Brit managed to inject himself with the confidence needed on this surface. While he lost to Rafael Nadal there, it was followed by another finals appearance in Estoril where he had a good chance to clinch his maiden ATP title.
And then as a qualifier, Norrie managed another second round appearance in Rome after giving the Madrid Masters a miss.
Here, he has already overpowered Corentin Moutet in straight sets and while Thiem will prove to be a difficult opponent for most, Norrie will have the belief he can take on the Austrian player.
Thiem v Norrie Prediction and Tip
A Norrie win is at 5/2 while Thiem starts off at 3/10 for this one. The odds are in line with what we would have thought but it still gives us some room to go with Norrie pushing Thiem and probably even winning a set.
