Andy Murray vs Cameron Norrie: Preview
Andy Murray started the season on a high by finishing runner-up at the Adelaide International but things haven’t been ideal for him ever since. He didn’t do well at the Golden swing and to prepare for the grass season, he decided to skip the clay-court season. He then reached the final of the Stuttgart Open but shockingly bowed out in the second round at Wimbledon. He then lost his opening round matches at the Citi Open and the Canadian Open. This week in Cincinnati, he defeated old rival Stan Wawrinka in the first round in three sets 7-6(3),5-7,7-5.
Cameron Norrie is having a breakout 2022 season and started it by winning the Delray Beach Open. He then reached the final of the Mexican Open and made it to the quarterfinals at Indian Wells. On clay, he won the Lyon Open but bowed out in the third round of the French Open. He then made it to his maiden grand slam semifinal at Wimbledon where he lost to Novak Djokovic and backed it up by reaching the final of the Los Cabos Open. In Cincinnati this week, he defeated Holger Rune in the opening round in three sets 7-6(5),4-6,6-4.
This will be the second meeting between the duo. Murray leads the H2H 1-0. They met in Beijing in 2019 where Murray won in three sets.
Andy Murray vs Cameron Norrie: Prediction
Based on recent form and results, Norrie will be the favorite to win the match. He is close to entering the top 10 again and has played some exceptional tennis in the last 2 months. The angles which he creates are very hard to cover and Murray will struggle with those coupled with big baseline hitting. Expect a good match with Murray fighting till the very end, but Norrie is expected to win the match.
Prediction: Norrie to win in straight sets.
