ATP Cup 2022: Cameron Norrie vs. Taylor Fritz Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2022 ATP Cup as Cameron Norrie meets Taylor Fritz on Thursday January 6th, 2022 (January 5th, 8:20pm EST).

Cameron Norrie and Tayor Fritz will do battle here at the 2022 ATP Cup in Sydney, during the tie between Great Britain and the USA. Both men have not had the best starts to their campaign here and will be hoping to work the kinks out ahead of the Australian Open. A close battle is expected here, who will get the win and the all-important point for their country?

Cameron Norrie is ranked #12 on the ATP Tour and is the number one ranked player from Great Britain. He will be leading his country into the 2022 ATP Cup for the first time, and expectations will be high after his breakout year in 2021 where he captured his first ever Masters-1000 title at Indian Wells. However, he has started poorly so far here in Sydney, dropping both of his matches in straight sets, albeit to very strong opponents in Alexander Zverev and Felix Auger-Aliassime. He will be hoping to get back on track here against Taylor Fritz in a match where he will start as the favorite, but will have to be much improved if he is to get the win here.

Taylor Fritz is the #1 player for the USA here at the 2022 ATP Cup and is currently ranked #23 on the ATP Tour. The American has been in mixed form so far here in Sydney, After dropping his opening match to Alexander Zverev, he won a stunning battle against Felix Auger-Aliassime in three sets, a win that will have given him a ton of confidence. He will be up against it here against Cameron Norrie however, with the Brit’s very consistent and counter-punching game sure to provide a stern challenge. Fritz is the slight underdog here, but if he displays the type of tennis as he did in his win over FAA, he is in with a strong chance of winning.

This will be the ninth meeting between the two players on the ATP Tour, with the head to head tied at 4-4. This is sure to be an entertaining match between players with contrasting styles, the power of Fritz and finesse of Norrie. I am expecting this to go down to the wire and it can really go either way here at the 2022 ATP Cup. Despite Taylor Fritz being in better form, I am going to back Cameron Norrie to get the win here. He has displayed that he is a top player last year, and it is only a matter of time before he finds some form, and I think that his style will frustrate the young American who will be drawn into more unforced errors than usual. It will be close, but expect Norrie to grind the win out here in Sydney.
