Felix Auger-Aliassime v Cameron Norrie Head to Head
Auger-Aliassime and Norrie have been involved in just one career head-to-head meeting till date. The pair met in the first round of the 2019 Indian Wells Masters, with the Canadian prevailing in straight sets.
Auger-Aliassime Still Eyeing His First Title
Responding well to being sent packing before his adoring home crowd by Serbian Dusan Lajovic in the opening round of the Canadian Open, Auger-Aliassime recorded a robust quarter-final finish at the Cincinnati Masters and went a step further, to the semifinals of the year’s last Grand Slam, the US Open.
However, the results, though encouraging doesn’t do justice to a player who has featured in several tournament finals in his relatively young career but has yet to land a maiden tour title.
That singular piece of statistic seems even more difficult to digest when you see it in the context of that his next opponent at the ongoing Vienna Open, Englishman Cameron Norrie.
For someone who turned pro the same year as Auger-Aliassime, in 2017, Norrie already has two titles in his bag, including a maiden Masters 1000 title at Indian Wells. What’s more, the Briton currently finds himself trailing the Canadian by just two ranking places in singles.
It’s with this desperate urge to get the monkey off his back and a title against his name that he will go into this second-round clash with Norrie on Thursday.
While the Canadian’s win in his only previous head-to-head outing with the Englishman will stand him in good stead going into this clash, what will serve as an added burst of motivation is his failure to land a championship trophy till date.
However, Norrie clearly isn’t the same opponent that went down in straight sets to the Canadian at the Indian Wells in 2019 as he not only now holds the mantle of a champion at the Masters but has also added a different dimension to his game which makes the left-handed tennis star far more formidable.
Norrie In The Hunt For More Titles In A Phenomenal Season
With already two titles, including a maiden Masters championship trophy, and a win/loss record of 47/20 against his name, year 2021 has been a phenomenal one for Norrie.
His purple patch has seen him make rapid strides up the ranking ladder and he is now within striking distance of breaking into the top-10 in singles.
Reaching his maiden Masters 1000 final at Indian Wells on the back of a sensational streak of wins, including upsets of Argentine Diego Schwartzman and Grigor Dimitrov, Norrie registered a fine come-from-behind victory over Georgian Nikoloz Basilashvili to lift the title.
However, there still a lot more to be achieved in what has been a glittering season for the Englishman and next in his sights is the Vienna title. And in a performance that typified his desire to gun for glory in the Austrian capital, Norrie opened his campaign with a fighting win over this year’s Wimbedon quarter-finalist Marton Fucsovics.
Edging out the Hungarian in the opening-set tiebreak, the Briton trounced him in the second to set up a second-round showdown with Auger-Aliassime.
Having lost their only previous head-to-head tie at Indian Wells in 2019, Thursday’s clash will present an opportunity for the Briton to avenge the Masters defeat and go level with the Canadian on head-to-head count. And, on the evidence of his current form, the task is certainly not beyond him.
Auger-Aliassime v Norrie Prediction and Tip
With Auger-Aliassime and Norrie just two ranking places apart in singles currently, Thursday’s clash has all the makings of a tight finish. While his win in their only previous head-to-head meeting will give the Canadian a slight edge, the Briton, on current form, will fancy wresting the bragging rights from his rival.
