Playing styles and prediction

The Spaniard has had a breakthrough season in 2021 with his first title in Umag being the standout moment. However Alcaraz is still unfamiliar on hard courts so it will be interesting to see what level he can show at a grand slam.   

Norrie will need to remain aggressive especially on return as the Spaniard has a powerful first serve and can punish short balls easily. However Alcaraz still needs to do a lot of developing tactically and physically with Norrie’s experience being a key factor in what should be a comfortable victory for him.

Prediction: Norrie in straight sets.
