Cameron Norrie is into back-to-back ATP quarter-finals after a straight sets win over Oscar Otte in Florida. It was a shaky start from Norrie, who was playing the German for the first time in his career, as the Brit was broken in the first game of the match. However Norrie emphatically responded with a break of his own as this match was a war of attrition.

Otte was attempting to implement his attacking tennis onto a slow Delray Beach court but the German found no success at the net against a resilient Norrie. After saving a break point, Norrie would convert his fourth break point opportunity of the sixth game as he battled for the 4-2 lead. Another backhand unforced error from Otte sealed the set for Norrie in 43 minutes.

Norrie continued the momentum in the second set as he continued to pick off the German at the net as a break to love sealed the 2-1 lead. It was all going smoothly for the Brit on serve until the latter stages of the second set when Otte took advantage of some passive play from the top seed to break in a long-winded eighth game. The German saved two break points to hold for 5-4 but couldn’t fend off Norrie for long.

A break in the eleventh game and a comfortable hold to love sealed Norrie’s passage into the quarter-finals which his second of the season having reached the same stage in Rotterdam last week.

Playing Styles and Prediction

Korda is one of the most talented players on tour having achieved deep results last year as well as winning an ATP title. The American reached the third round at the Australian Open and is looking to use that as a platform for the rest of the season as he aims for a seeding spot at Roland Garros.

Norrie will need to be aggressive with deep powerful shots to trouble Korda at the baseline. The Brit may want to finish the points at the net to mix things up as Korda can catch onto predictable patterns of play quickly. A win here would set Norrie up perfectly for the defence of his title at Indian Wells but this could be a step too far against a confident player.  

Prediction: Korda in three sets.
