Cameron Norrie v Dusan Lajovic [6] | H2H: Lajovic leads 2-0

Cameron Norrie continues to fly the flag over the past few weeks as he carries on along the Latin-American clay court swing. He did not make it out of qualifying in Buenos Aires, and while he makes the main draw of this ATP 500 event, he is unlucky to draw a decent clay courter in Dusan Lajovic.

His two losses to the Serbian have come on hard courts but here he really is in Lajovic’s playground. While he has proved he can be dangerous on all surfaces, he plays his best on clay with a powerful first serve and very solid forehand from the baseline as big weapons, matched with a pretty decent backhand.

Norrie does a bit of everything pretty well and has a very good temperament on the court – very grounded. He has made some improvements to his game – his forehand stands out as a decent flat shot that does a bit of damage when he goes for it but his serve might well come up short against the Serbian.

With Kyle Edmund still missing from the tournament after a rough start to the year, Norrie will do well to capitalise on being able to get tournaments under his belt as we gallop towards the US hard court spring swing, where Norrie may well pick up some more ranking points.

Prediction: Lajovic in straight sets.

Norrie & Lajovic are scheduled on Quadra 1, not before 6pm (9pm GMT)
