Cameron Norrie vs Andrey Rublev Prediction and Betting Tips

Cameron Norrie has enjoyed some fine form over the past couple of months; in the last 60 days, she lifted the title in Eastbourne and got to the final in Cincinnati. Similarly, Andrey Rublev is enjoying one of the best years of her career; as she matched or surpassed her best performances in all grand slams this year. The American has spent a bit more time than her opponent on the court; as Norrie played one less match due to Kalinina’s withdrawal.

Cameron Norrie vs Andrey Rublev Head to Head

The rivalry between the two began two years ago in St. Petersburg when the Russian was strong at home and eliminated Norrie in two sets in the quarter-finals. A year later they met in San Diego, the Russian took the lead by winning the first set, but then Norrie turned the situation around to win the next two sets and advance to the final, where he lost to Casper Ruud.

Cameron Norrie to win

After a thorough analysis of the statistics and the current performance of each player, we deduce that it will be the British player who will advance to the finals. Norrie has been solid in each of his matches, not only in this tournament but also in the events he has played in the last three months.

Rublev has a great level, but lately, he has had ups and downs, so it has been difficult for him to beat even players who are not even in the top 50 of the ranking. The last time they met, Cameron Lucio did better, since then the Briton’s success has increased so he will surely win, maybe in straight sets.

Since June, when Norrie reached the Wimbledon semi-finals, the American’s form has improved.

Rublev US Open Analysis

The 24-year-old has struggled in two of his first three games, one against Dere and the other against Shapovalov, the latter in the third round. Fatigue can affect Rublev’s performance, as his match against the Canadian lasted more than four hours. Rublev had only 9 aces during the five sets, while his opponent had 23.
