Playing Styles and Prediction

The American qualifier enters Roland Garros with some form having reached the Tallahasse challenger final on clay followed by back-to-back wins in the Biella challenger and winning three matches to earn a main draw spot. Fratangelo has a big game with his forehand likely to do most of the damage. However the World No. 197’s inconsistent serving is something that has been holding him back in search of a top 100 spot.

This will be a test for Norrie there is no doubting that but this is the highest ranked opponent the American has faced all season. The Brit’s confidence should be too much especially in a best of five set match although don’t be shocked if the qualifier dominates in the early stages.

Prediction: Norrie in straight sets.
