The last Brit standing in the men’s draw at the French Open 2022 is Cameron Norrie who steps into the third round on Friday.

At this stage of last year’s campaign, Norrie bumped into Rafael Nadal and bowed out.

This year he squares up to Karen Khachanov for a place in the second week of action. Norrie goes as the match favourite.

Cameron Norrie Preview – Steady from Norrie

The draw in the early rounds have been kind to Cameron Norrie so far at the French Open.

He met a wildcard in the first round and then a qualifier in the second.

Those inexperienced opponents were brushed aside in straight sets by Norrie.

For French Open tennis betting, Cameron Norrie is 4/9 odds on favourite to take this match* (odds recorded 23:16 GMT on May 26th, 2022 at William Hill).

Sometimes concentration can go when facing lesser opponents.

The British number one hasn’t let that happen in this draw and it’s given him a good chance to settle in at Roland Garros.

There could be a good chance for Norrie in this fixture.

This is just the second time in the third round of the French Open, last year’s debut at this stage ending in defeat against Rafa Nadal.

Norrie has been nice and consistent since last autumn on the ATP and his stock on the clay is rising.

Our betting prediction:
Norrie 3-1 Set betting

Cameron Norrie claimed the title in Lyon just before the start of the French Open.

In that clay tournament, Friday’s opponent Karen Khachanov had bowed out early.

Another positive for French Open tips in baking Norrie is that he leads 3-2 in the head to head against Khachnov.

Two of those wins for Norrie over him came from the two previous clay meetings.

Can Norrie ride this positive momentum?

He is up to nine wins in twelve clay matches this season and could record his best French Open effort yet.


Karen Khachanov Preview – Khachanov not to be knocked around

Karen Khachanov has dropped a set in both of his matches so far at this year’s French Open.

Those were wins against decent clay court opponents.

But the challenges are only going to get tougher for the former Russian number one.

Khachanov is a quote of 7/4 in French Open odds* (odds recorded 23:16 GMT on May 26th, 2022 at William Hill).

At last year’s French Open, Khachanov was dumped out in the second round.

The best finish that he has posted at Roland Garros was a quarterfinal appearance in 2019.

That was the first time in five entries that he had failed to make it to the second week of action.

The current form on the clay hasn’t been specular, not anything that Norrie should be unduly worried about.

Karen Khachanov has not won more than two matches in a clay event played this season.

He was in the Lyon event earlier this month that Norrie won, and lost in the second round.

Khakachnov will undoubtedly be pleased with his progress at the French Open so far.

But there’s room for improvement and the dropped sets mean that he has spent a lot more time on the court than Norrie has.

This is an intriguing showdown between two current top twenty-five players.

There probably is not going to be a great deal in it.


Cameron Norrie vs Karen Khachanov Betting Advice
