Alexandre Muller vs Cameron Norrie Prediction and Odds: Italian Open 2023

Cam Norrie, the 13th seed at the Italian Open, will play against the French qualifier, Muller in the second round. And if you want to know which markets to back for this match, I’ve got you covered below.

These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Muller vs Norrie – Match Predictions

The qualifier, Alexandre Muller, has won a fair few matches to earn his spot in the second round of the Italian Open. Cam Norrie on the other hand, has reached the second round without hitting a ball, as he is one of the Italian Open seeds. So as you can already guess, Cam Norrie is the favorite to take the win here, and I believe this will be the result.

However, when creating the most appealing tennis predictions today, we don’t like to stick with the obvious picks. So instead of going for low-value markets, I am shooting for these two instead:

Norrie to Win 2-0

There isn’t much value in taking Cam Norrie for the outright win in this match. But if you shoot for a straight-sets win, the odds are much more appealing. And given Norrie’s quality on clay, combined with his opponent’s relatively low ranking, this is an appropriate option.

Under 21.5 Games

Because of the huge difference in rankings here, it’s likely that Norrie will demolish the French qualifier. He could easily rack up a break or two in each set, and this would take him comfortably over the line without dropping too many games. Therefore, this is also a great choice for the Muller vs Norrie clash.

Alexandre Muller Preview

Muller has been able to win three matches at the Italian Open to get to this point. Interestingly, he’s only dropped one set, so he shouldn’t be feeling super tired. However, Norrie is a guy who makes you battle for every point, so he could well be feeling it when he takes on the world number 13.

Cameron Norrie Preview

Cam Norrie is one of the most improved clay court players in recent times. He hits heavy topspin on the forehand side, which makes this an ideal shot for clay court tennis. But his backhand is a little flat, which Muller will no doubt try and target in the match. Nevertheless, you don’t become number 13 in the world for nothing, and his experience will surely shine through against the Frenchman.

Muller vs Norrie Head to Head

Due to the relatively big discrepancy between the rankings of these guys, it’s no shock to see that they haven’t played in the past. Of course, Muller is usually floating around at the Challenger level or the ATP 250 level. In contrast, Norrie is up there in the main draw for the biggest tournaments in the sport. Therefore, the lack of history between these two makes it an exciting prospect.
