Britain’s Cameron Norrie heads into action at ATP Cincinnati this week and he is a narrow favourite to win his first-round match.

Norrie, who has had a good season, faces up to America’s John Isner.

Cameron Norrie does need a little bounce back to form as it’s dipped a little since winning a title in Mexico last month.

John Isner Preview – Can Isner claim a win?

America’s John Isner rates a bit of a threat here as he steps into action at ATP Cincinnati this week.

He has found some great form on the hard court swing of the season this year.

Isner recently collected atitle in Atlanta, granted that wasn’t in a particularly strong draw.

But that puts him on the radar.

Isner followed that form up last week as well with a run to the Fifth Round in Toronto.

That was a huge effort from the American, who is ranked 30th in the world, one place behind Norrie.

Isner’s run last week was ended by Daniil Medvedev.

He enters the action as an even money quote in the match outright for tennis betting* (odds taken 23:12 GMT August 15th 2021 at Unibet).

There have been two previous meetings between Isner and Norrie on the ATP.

They both happened in 2018. Isner lost the first of those meetings 2-0 on clay in Lyon.

But then he turned the tables with a 2-1 success over the Brit in Vienna later in the year on a hard court surface.

It has been a wonderful return of W11 L2 from Isner in his last thirteen matches, all of which have come on hard court surfaces.


Cameron Norrie Preview – Can Norrie rediscover form?

There was a really high moment for Cameron Norrie last month as he collected a title in Mexico.

That was a great effort from him.

Interestingly, the players that he beat in the semi-final and the final, were the same two that Isner beat recently in the final two rounds of his title run in Atlanta.

But since that win in Mexico, the form of Norrie has taken a little tumble.

Norrie has lost three of his last four matches played, all on the hardcourt.

Last week he was in Toronto and suffered a first-round loss.

That was a 2-1 credible effort against Karen Khachanov.

In the match outright for this fixture, Norrie is a quote of 4/5 odds-on in tennis betting* (odds taken 23:12 GMT August 15th 2021 at Unibet).

Cameron Norrie has entered a superb 37/16 win/loss record this season including that title run.

Along the way, he has reached a total of four finals this year on the ATP.

There was that hard court one in Mexico, a couple on clay at Estoril and Lyon and then at Queens on the grass.

So he’s been very versatile and effective.

The question mark here is over the hard court form.

Because it falls a little short against the recent form of Isner on the surface.


John Isner vs Cameron Norrie Betting Advice

It’s hard to ignore the hard court form that John Isner has produced recently, as he’s been in cracking shape.

That title win in Atlanta was a good solid result, but more impressive was his deep run in Toronto last week in a much higher-quality tournament.

So the even money quote on the win for Isner is what gets the nod in tennis betting.
