Norrie’s confidence on big points and his ability to back himself will be crucial in a match against a player who has very good previous form on a grass court and will back himself to hit winners past the Brit.

Playing styles and prediction

Pouille has had his injuries and setbacks as he looks to regain the form that saw him into the top 20 in the world at one time. On a grass court he can be very dangerous with his big serve and big forehand.

However Pouille is not the player he once was and Norrie is in serious form right now no matter the surface. The Brit’s confidence and ability to neutralise the points has put him as a dangerous floater in the draw. Getting Pouille onto his backhand in uncomfortable positions in the court will be the key to Norrie gaining passage into the second round for only the second time in his career.

Prediction: Norrie in four sets.
