Another defeat in Cincinnati means Cameron Norrie is on a four match losing streak and the Brit is now looking to stop the bad run of form at the US Open when he takes on Alexander Shevchenko in his opening round match.
Norrie will look to continue to his efficiency on serve as he takes on the powerful and smart returning of Shevchenko.
Playing styles and prediction
Shevchenko has had a phenomenal season but in recent weeks has struggled to find consistency in both form and fitness. The world number 84 will hope to use the US Open as a foundation to rebuild his confidence as he looks to end a career best season in good form.
Norrie will look to be consistent and will need to be aggressive in the big moments if he wants to have any chance of winning this match. Shevchenko will look to end the points early on and will look to take advantage of Norrie’s lack of confidence with some powerful returning. This will be a tough test for Norrie and the Brit cannot afford to be passive on the big points otherwise he will be punished like he has done in recent weeks. However if the Brit is aggressive and proactive when it matters then he should edge to victory in what will be a tough opening test.
