Playing Styles and Prediction

It will be an aggressive game between the pair, with the Spaniard having one of the best drop shots on tour, so Norrie’s movement will have to be on point. Davidovich Fokina can blow a little hot and cold though – whereas Norrie is generally a more consistent presence n a court.

We ought to expect the Spaniard to be throwing himself around the court literally as he tends to dive here and there, but expect this to be a test of Norrie’s movement and gritty tenacity

Prediction: Norrie in three sets
