Felix Auger Aliassime vs Cameron Norrie: Preview
Felix Auger Aliassime has been consistent on tour this year and is establishing himself amongst the best in the world. He made it to the quarterfinal at Wimbledon where he defeated the likes of Nick Kyrgios and Alexander Zverev. He also made it to the quarterfinal of the Cincinnati Masters before reaching his maiden grand slam semifinal at Flushing Meadows where he lost to eventual champion Daniil Medvedev. This week in Vienna, he blasted past Ricardas Berankis in the first round 6-3,6-2.
British No.1 Cameron Norrie has had a dream season so far. He reached the final of the Estoril Open and Lyon Open on clay before reaching the final at Queen’s Club on home soil. At Wimbledon, he took a set against Roger Federer but bowed out of the third round. He then won the Los Cabos Open and then made it to the final of the San Diego Open.
He then won his maiden masters title at Indian Wells last week, where he defeated Nikoloz Basilashvili in three sets. In the first round in Vienna, Norrie got the better of Marton Fucsovics in straight sets 7-6(4),6-1 to book a date with Felix.

This will be the second meeting between the duo. Felix leads the H2H 1-0. They last met at Indian Wells two years ago where Felix won in straight sets.
Felix Auger Aliassime vs Cameron Norrie: Prediction
Based on current form, not much separates the two players. Felix has done well throughout the year but lost his very first match at Indian Wells, the tournament which Norrie won. But the Canadian was in good touch in the first round at Vienna and will fancy his chances on the fast indoor hard courts. Expect Norrie to push Felix to the limit, but Felix should have enough fuel to withstand the challenge from the Brit.
Prediction: Auger Aliassime to win in three sets.
