Cameron Norrie vs Constant Lestienne – Match Prediction

For those interested in wagering on this match, here are our top two expert picks ahead of the first ball being served. If you like these, make sure to check out our other tennis predictions here as well.

Cameron Norrie to Win 3-0 @ 3/4 (1.75)

Cameron Norrie is playing some fantastic tennis in 2023, and should have too much for the Frenchman here. While Norrie is World No.12 and has been inside the Top 10 recently, Lestienne is outside of the Top 50. Norrie navigated a low ranked Frenchman in his first round match, and we expect him to do so again here.

Under 32.5 Games @ 4/5 (1.80)

Even if Lestienne puts up a good fight, it’s unlikely the match will go beyond 32.5 games. To do so, Lestienne would need to win a set, or push multiple sets to the brink. While he may do this once, even a 6-4, 7-5, 6-4 score line would be only 32 games, making this a strong bet for those who believe this match will end in straight sets.

Cameron Norrie vs Constant Lestienne Preview

Here’s a little background on each player’s path to this match, to inform your betting:

Cameron Norrie

To date in 2023, Cameron Norrie has made the final of the ASB Classic in Auckland, falling just short in an epic three set final against Richard Gasquet. He’s bounced back strong with a straight forward 7-6, 6-0, 6-3 win in the first round over Luca Van Assche, and will be looking to make a deep run in the Australian Open this year to move back into the Top 10 in the rankings.

Constant Lestienne

Frenchman Constant Lestienne will be pleased with his solid first round performance, having also claimed a straight sets win in his opener. Thiago Monteiro was his victim, defeated 6-3, 7-6, 6-3. Lestienne sits at No.65 in the world, and is playing in his first ever Australian Open, having only made the second round of a Grand Slam once, in 2017. Interestingly, Lestienne also lost to Richard Gasquet in Auckland last week, with the Frenchman facing his compatriot in the semi-finals of the ASB Classic.

Cameron Norrie vs Constant Lestienne Head to Head

Norrie and Lestienne have met once before, with the Brit winning their encounter 6-4, 7-6, 6-3 when they played in Marseilles in 2021.
