Playing styles and prediction

Kyrgios is playing only his fourth ATP tour event since the COVID-19 pandemic having chosen home comforts over ranking points. But since his return Kyrgios has shown the type of form that makes him a threat against anyone. A retirement against Felix Auger-Aliassime at Wimbledon though raised doubts about the Australian’s physical fitness and endurance levels.

Norrie will have to expect the unexpected because as Kevin Anderson found out, the Australian is capable of pretty much everything. Kyrgios’s serve will be effective on this court surface but once the rallies get longer, the Brit will be the heavy favourite. It will all depend on how often the third seed will be allowed to extend the rallies and play his confident, free-flowing tennis that has seen him rise as far as he has this season. This match could go the distance and will be a test of both players’ hard court credentials.

Prediction: Norrie in three sets.
