Cameron Norrie vs Carlos Alcaraz Garfia: Preview
The 26-year-old, Cameron Norrie will kick start his fifth US Open campaign on the 30th against the teen from Spain. Norrie has had a topsy turvy season so far as the US Open. After having some splendid clay-court victories at the Roland Garros and the Lyon Open and at the grass in the Queen’s Club Championship and SW19, the British player stayed low at the hardcourt events. The only highlight was the title win at the Los Cabos Open however at the rest of the other events he faced early exits. The last match he played was at the Cincinnati Masters where he was knocked out by John Isner, 6-4, 6-7, 4-6.
The 18-year-old Spaniard, Carlos Alcaraz is the youngest entrant to the ATP tour. Right from the start, he has shown signs of being the potential Top tier player. In his very first appearances at the Roland Garros and the SW19 championships, he looked promising as he took on a few in the top 10 and gave them a tough fight. He also achieved his first-ever ATP title win at the Croatia open earlier this summer. He currently is still competing for the title at the Winston Salem Open 2021 where he is scheduled to meet the Swedish, Ymer at the Semi-finals clash.
Cameron Norrie vs Carlos Alcaraz Garfia: Head to Head
These two players have never faced each other before making this encounter their first-ever. The head to head stands 0-0 between these two.
Cameron Norrie vs Carlos Alcaraz Garfia: Prediction
World No. 29, Norrie will be keen to revive himself at the Flushing Meadows after a slightly disappointing hard court season so far. He has already proved his mettle at various events where he has faced top players, even the big 3, and taken a lot out of them. His encounter with Nadal at the FO and Federer at the Wimbledon is evident of his caliber and quality at bigger stages.
Carlos Alcafraz, meanwhile, is a budding talent who is no short of surprises. He may not have the experience in his hands but he surely has the game to contest with whoever and wherever he is placed against. We are to see a lot of him in the future once he gets his luck going. For now, we think that Norrie has the numbers and experience alongside him which may get the better of his opponent in this first-round encounter.
