Cameron Norrie vs Borna Coric
|Date & Time||Wednesday September 26, 2018, 1:30 AM (EDT)|
The Line: -- Over/Under:
Croatian superstar, Borna Coric will play Cameron Norrie from the United Kingdom during the second round of the 2018 ATP Shenzhen Open in China.
Cameron Norrie enters this match having won his opening round fixture over Wu Di in straight sets. It was a very dominating performance by Norrie as he only conceded 4 games in the entire match. This will be a much biggest test for Cameron Norrie and it will test the UK based player as he is not in great form having only won 2 games since the Los Cabos Open which was over 6 weeks ago. Cameron Norrie has a disappointing record in Asia and it is going to be tough for him to improve that considering he is playing an elite player in the second round.
In contrast, Borna Coric is in great form having helped Croatia win their Davis Cup tie against the United States. Coric also had a decent US Open as he made the fourth round of the tournament. Coric has done well in the past in Asia with many notable Challenger and ITF Future results. In addition to that, Coric also came second at the ATP Chennai Open in India. This is a match that Borna Coric is expected to win considering he is a much more accomplished player when compared to Cameron Norrie.
These two players have met once in the past in a match that Borna Coric won comfortably.
While Cameron Norrie played well in his opening round win, I see him losing. Norrie has not been at his best over the past few weeks and with the challenge of Coric, it will be too much for the Brit. Borna Coric is in good form and has a great record in Asia which should see him winning this match and making the third round of the 2018 ATP Shenzhen Open.
