Cameron Norrie v Lucas Pouille Head to Head
Their only previous meeting came at the 2018 French Open which saw Pouille win in four sets.
Norrie Coming off Queen’s Final
Norrie has never won an ATP title in his career and three times this year it looked like he would break that duck.
Unfortunately for Norrie, he lost in the final at each of them including in London in the preceding week where he made the title-decider at the Queen’s Club competition. What made that run special were his wins over Aslan Karatsev and Denis Shapovalov, but in the final, Norrie fell in a fighting three-setter to Matteo Berrettini.
His previous two finals had come at Estoril and Lyon, two competitions played on clay.
And even on hard court tournaments earlier this season, Norrie had found his rhythm with a semifinal appearance at Delray Beach and third round at Australian Open.
Interestingly, before this season, Norrie’s record on grass had been anything but exemplary with just five wins on the surface between 2013 and 2020. Can he push on from where he had left off at Queen’s Club.
Pouille’s Won Just Three Matches This Year
On the one side is a player like Norrie who is coming off a four-match winning streak that was ended in the final of that tournament. And then there’s Pouille who has won three matches in the entire year.
That has also seen Pouille fall from his season-best ranking of 71st to his current 96th.
A complicated elbow injury had meant Pouille did not play any main draw matches on the ATP tour last year either, which indicate the Frenchman has been out of touch of winning for a while.
What could help Pouille is his record on grass on which he has won 18 of his 31 matches, so while his form hasn’t been the best, if he can get his muscle memory to kick in he could make it difficult for Norrie.
Norrie v Pouille Prediction and Tip
Given all that has gone in the season, it’s not too surprising Norrie is an overwhelming favourite to win this with odds of 1/5 and 1/1 to do that in straight sets. We believe Pouille would have bit more of a fight in him and might take a set off his opponent but in the end Norrie will get the result he wants.
