Karen Khachanov

Karen Khachanov is a favorite going into this match up, this is because of his higher ranking over Cameron Norrie. Cameron Norrie has stated that he would like to get into the top 30 rankings.

Norrie has a very aggressive playstyle and Khachanov has a similar style. But Khachanov’s backhand is a bit wobbly unlike Norrie’s backhand.

This match will be a very nail biting affair, as it usually is when players with similar playstyle clash.

Match Prediction: Karen Khachanov to win with two sets to one.
