Cameron Norrie vs Steve Johnson: Preview
World No. 9 Cameron Norrie has been in stellar form this season maintaining around 65% win ratio. He has already won major titles like the Delray Beach and the Mexican Open. After setting up an encounter with Pablo Andujar in the first round, he showed extreme cool and composure to get past him comfortably and with ease. But his second round match up was quite complex as he faced Jaume Munar. He started the game with a beautiful approach and everyone believed it would be the same way as the first round game but Munar had other plans. Munar backfired brilliantly and answered all the critics well winning back to back sets and putting Norrie on the beck seat but he cameback in fine fashion to steer himself to the round of 32 with a 6-4, 3-6, 5-7, 6-0, 6-2 win.
On the other hand, Steve Johnson has also been influential in terms of game win percentage winning 14 out of 25 matches this season. He was the runners-up at the Sarasota Challenger and it was a kind of disappointing finish for him at the Queen’s Club and Eastbourne. Despite his disappointing form in the previous tournaments, it didn’t harm his game at the Wimbledon as he got a walkover against Grigor Dimitrov in the first round. Dimitrov had to retire from the match due to a groin injury. Though few people were not happy about him qualifying and were considering him lucky, he went past Ryan Peniston with ease in the second round.
Norrie and Johnson have never faced each other before.
Cameron Norrie vs Steve Johnson: Prediction
Its a no brainer to expect Cameron Norrie to go past Steve Johnson in this third round tie considering his form and experience on the grass.
Prediction: Cameron Norrie to win in three sets.
