Cameron Norrie v Gregoire Barrere [Q] | Norrie leads H2H 1-0
The US Open draws have proved challenging for the Brits, with Cameron Norrie maybe having the best of the bunch, starting against French qualifier Gregoire Barrere. It helps that Norrie, who has since slipped to the position of British No. 3 most recently got the upper hand against the Frenchman in Los Cabos in what had started as a pretty spirited start to the hard court summer.
Barrere has picked up some solid results over the Challenger tour, and despite pushing Norrie hard in their Los Cabos encounter in the first set, he completely capitulated in the second set, and that should give the Brit a lot of confidence of reaching his previous best in New York of the second round.
Despite Barrere having the confidence of three straight wins in qualifying, Norrie has more experience now at this level, and has always been a solid enough player on the big stage. This should be a decent enough start for the Brit as he works to regain his spot behind Kyle Edmund in the British rankings, having slipped down a place while Dan Evans enjoyed a very successful grass court summer.
