Norrie Off to a Disappointing Start in 2022

Cameron Norrie is coming off an extraordinary 2021 season, which saw him win his first two career titles, finish runner-up on four occasions and gain 62 places in the rankings to reach a career-high of No. 12.

The 26-year-old’s impressive 52-25 run, was his best-ever by a distance. The only other time he had finished a season with a winning record was in 2018 when he went 19-18.

Having reached just one final before 2021, Norrie captured his maiden title in Los Cabos and his maiden ATP 1000 crown in Indian Wells. The lefty also finished runner-up in Estoril, Lyon, Queen’s and San Diego.

But he is yet to get his first win this season. Representing Britain at the ATP Cup, the British No. 1 had a torrid time as he lost all three of his singles matches to Alexander Zverev of Germany, Felix Auger-Aliassime of Canada and Taylor Fritz of the U.S. While he lost to the former two in straight sets, he took a set of the American before going down in three.

Making his fourth main draw appearance at the Australian Open, Norrie will be stop the skid and get back to winning ways. He has never gone past the third round of a major and last year’s Austrlian Open was the first time he reached that stage in Melbourne after two first-round exits.

Things won’t be easy for the Briton as he faces the extremely talented Korda in the first round, who is very capable of causing a first round upset.

Korda Yet to Play His First Match This Year

Like Norrie, Korda too is coming off a breakthrough season. The 21-year-old American made an impression in his very first tournament of 2021 at Delray Beach, reaching a maiden final before finishing runner-up to Hubert Hurkacz.

He followed up the solid start with a Challenger title and then kept impressing on the tour. First he reached the quarterfinals at Miami Open, then he captured his first ATP title in Parma before ending the 31-18 season with a runner-up finish at the ATP Next Gen Finals.

Korda, however, is underprepared for his Australian Open debut, having not played a single match this year. He was slated to play in Adelaide but he tested positive for COVID-19 and has been in isolation and following Australia’s COVID protocols.

Could that hamper his chances against Norrie? The World No. 12 hasn’t had an encouraging start but still he has spent considerable time on court and will be better prepared than his younger opponent, who could show signs of rust in his first match of the season.

Ranked No. 40, Korda proved himself on all surfaces last season and will be looking to build on that this year. Can he make an immediate impact in Melbourne?

Norrie v Korda Prediction and Tip

Norrie has had better preparation leading up to the first Grand Slam and he will be the favourite against the American, who may be a tad rusty. Expect Norrie to avenge his Delray Beach defeat.
