Cameron Norrie Preview – Can Norrie deliver the win?

Britain’s Cameron Norrie has a tough match on his hands in Canada this week in the opening round.

Norrie is a narrow underdog in the match outright for tennis betting, so the bookies think that he is no forlorn hope.

There have been some struggles for Norrie in his last two tournaments.

He bowed out at the second round stage in Atalanta and then last week in Washington.

Before that, the Brit had been ticking along in very good form.

Norrie had reached the final of Queens in June, losing that one against Matteo Berrettini.

Then last month he had tremendous success, claiming the title at Los Cabos, Mexico.

In the match outright Norrie is a quote of even money* (odds taken 20:28 GMT on August 8th 2021 at Betfair)

Our betting prediction:
Khachanov 2-0 set betting

There have been three previous meetings between Norrie and Khachanov and they have all been this year.

From that, it is Norrie who is 2-1 ahead, with those successes both happening on clay.

The one previous meeting that they had on the hard court was in March this year in Rotterdam, with Khachanov winning in straight sets.

Looking at the form of Norrie on hard court surfaces, there is reasonable form there.

It is a W7 L3 record that Norrie has posted in his last ten on this surface.


Karen Khachanov Preview – Can Khachanov continue in form?

Russia’s Karen Khachanov had a good time out in Japan at the Olympic Games.

He claimed the silver medal, having lost the final of the event to Alexander Zverev.

Considering that his form on hard courts hadn’t been great this year before that, it was an unexpected run.

The final of the Olympics was played back on the 1st of August, so he has had recovery time.

That shouldn’t be an issue.

In the match outright for tennis betting, Khachanov is a quote of 4/5 to pick up the victory* (odds taken 20:28 GMT on August 8th 2021 at Betfair).

Doing so would see him level up head to head with Britain’s Norrie.

Karen Khachanov’s run at the Olympics did back up a good campaign on the grass at Wimbledon by him.

He had reached the fifth round at SW19.

Khachanov lost in a deciding set only there against Denis Shapovalov who would go on to reach the final.

It is just that fact, and because he won the only previous hard court meeting that just sends preference in tennis betting to him.
