Cameron Norrie vs Gael Monfils – match predictions

Gael Monfils to win

Norrie is 30-15 in the 2023 campaign and will fancy his chances against the returning Monfils. However, current momentum does not favour him as Norrie is on a three-match losing streak while the Frenchman is enjoying a run to the Toronto Open quarter-finals. Monfils also has won his two prior matches against Norrie and we are backing him to pile on the British ace’s problems.

Over 22.5 games

There has been a deciding set in three of Norrie’s last four matches. His defeat in Los Cabos saw 35 games while his ousting in Toronto Open witnessed 22 games. Monfils’ defeat to Jannik Sinner saw 29 games while his win over Aleksander Vukic saw 20 games. With the duo’s last outings seeing an extended number of games, we expect to see Over 22.5 Games in this duel.

Cameron Norrie vs Gael Monfils preview

Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in the Cincinnati Open.

Cameron Norrie

The British number one has struggled to impress since his Wimbledon ousting in the second round. Norrie has struggled to get going on the European clay court swing and the British grass court affairs. His poor form has followed him in the North American hard court circuit, losing at the first time of asking in Los Cabos and Toronto. This has come on the back of a 30-15 record and Norrie needs to get his act together for a chance at the ATP Finals.

Gael Monfils

Monfils continues his comeback journey after a long injury lay-off. He still finds himself north of the 250 rankings slots but would be edging closer to his former best. At the Canadian Open, he impressed on his journey to the quarter-finals which was an improvement on his third-round exit at the Citi Open in Washington. He has the upper hand against Norrie and recent better form, which should put him in the right frame of mind.
