Cameron Norrie v Alexei Popyrin Head to Head

Their only previous encounter had come on the hard courts of the 2019 Atlanta Open and Norrie had won that quarterfinal in straight sets.

Norrie Begins on a High at Queen’s

Playing in his first grass court competition of the season, Norrie achieved his best ever performance ever on grass when he reached the final of the Queen’s Club competition last week.

In getting to the final, Norrie defeated Aslan Karatsev and Denis Shapovalov before Matteo Berrettini got the better of him for the title. Before this, Norrie had three ATP finals to his name but none of them had come on grass. That was also his first final in an ATP 500 tournament.

That result did its bit in propelling Norrie to 34th in the world too, but more importantly would have given him the kind of push he would have needed while coming into Wimbledon.

Earlier this season Norrie had earned himself a place in the semifinal of the Delray Beach Open to kick-start 2021, and then got to two other finals – at Lyon and Estoril – but lost both of them.

If he can recover quickly from having played five matches in a week’s time, Norrie has the game to go deep here too.

Popyrin on a Five-Match Losing Streak

While Popyrin did have a good start to the season as he went on to clinch his maiden title in Singapore, and then had a couple of third round appearances at Miami and Madrid, the Aussie’s form seems to have fizzled out in more recent times.

In fact since reaching the third round in Madrid and losing to Rafael Nadal, Popyrin hasn’t won a match. That’s five successive losses including at the first round in Rome and Roland-Garros and then again in his openers in Stuttgart and Queen’s Club.

The pivot to grass, therefore, hasn’t been how Popyrin would have liked.

Which is why Popyrin would be desperate to feature in a tournament here, a week before Wimbledon, to try and get a win under his belt. Going into the year’s third Grand Slam with no win under his belt on grass would be the last thing Popyrin would want.

Norrie v Popyrin Prediction and Tip

Popyrin’s recent fall in fortunes and Norrie’s run to the final make him a heavy favourite here. Backing him to win in three sets though.
