Cameron Norrie v Jack Draper Head to Head

The pair have met once before, in the so-called battle of the Brits at the National Tennis Centre in Roehampton last December, Draper winning in two sets, both of which were decided by a tie-break.

Norrie Looking to Translate Clay Court Form to Grass

Norrie had an excellent clay court season, reaching two finals, in Estoril and Lyon, in May.

He lost both of them, but those results have helped propel him to a career-high ranking and he will now be hoping to translate that form onto grass, ahead of his home Grand Slam of Wimbledon, where he will be hoping to improve his poor record this year. He has never been further than the second round.

In his first round match at Queen’s, he gained a modicum of revenge over the Spaniard Albert Ramos-Vinolas, the world number 38, the man who beat him in the Estoril final, but was made to work hard by the clay court specialist, and had to come from a  set down before eventually turning things around.

However, he found the Russia n Aslan Karatsev, the world number 24, but a man not known for his comfort in a grass court, a more amenable opponent on Wednesday.

The first set was keenly contested, with the pair sharing a  break apiece until Karatsev dropped his serve for the second time. Norrie then saved two break back points before eventually clinching eh set.

The second was more straightforward for Norrie, especially after he went a break-up. Karatsev briefly threated to break back but then he dropped his own serve again, and from there the outcome was a foregone conclusion.

Teenager Draper Thriving in London

Draper, who was born close to Wimbledon itself, was a runner-up in the boys’ singles there in 2018.

And, next week, he will feature in the main draw there for the first time having been given a wildcard, a reward in part for his excellent performances at the Queen’s Club this week.

Given a wildcard into this event as well, he began with a  match against Jannik Sinner, the world number 23 – who is actually the same age as him – and surprised the Italian with a straight sets win, both taken via tie-breaks.

That earned him a second round tie against Alexander Bublik of Kazakhstan, world ranked 39th, and again the outcome was the same, a straight sets win courtesy of two tie-breaks.

The match against Norrie will be the biggest match of his senior career to date, but he has already shown the ability to play without fear this week, and knows he can beat Norrie, so he will go into the match with nothing to lose, and everything to gain.

Norrie v Draper Prediction and Tip

Norrie, as the higher ranked and more experienced player, especially in a  tournament of this prestige, will start the favourite. But Draper has beaten him before, so he will be advised not to underestimate the teenager.
