TennisSection previews the 2022 Montreal Open as Felix Auger Aliassime takes on Cameron Norrie in the Round of 16 on Thursday, August 11th, 2022.
Will Felix Auger Aliassime get the win? Will Cameron Norrie pull off the upset? This will be a fascinating one, where the Canadian No. 1 and hometown hero meets a very dangerous opponent. Who will triumph and move on to the quarterfinals at the 2022 Montreal Open?
Felix Auger-Aliassime got an excellent win over Yoshihito Nishioka, taking him down in 2 tight sets, what was a historically difficult matchup for him was overcome today as he got a very special win in front of his home crowd. As he heads into the last 16 for a rematch against Cameron Norrie from last week, he’s going to be feeling pretty good. The conditions here are great for his game, and with the way he served today I expect him to make a showing as he looks to move on at the 2022 Montreal Open.
Cameron Norrie got a very good win as he was looking scary good against Botic van de Zandschulp, taking him down 6-1 6-2 as he heads into a popcorn match with Felix Auger-Aliassime. Although he did get the better of him just recently and is playing on his best surface, Auger-Aliassime is at home and he’ll be looking to get revenge, I expect this one to be highly contested, but Norrie will have to change it up and play some assertive tennis if he wants to take this one away from the Canadian at the 2022 Montreal Open.
Felix Auger-Aliassime and Cameron Norrie have met 5 times before, with Felix Auger-Aliassime leading the head to head 4-1.FAA has played the top Brit 5 times, all on hard courts, taking the first 4 meetings but losing their most recent meeting last week. Auger-Aliassime serves really well, and with how he redirects his ball and with his offensive play, Norrie is always out of rhythm playing him. I expect that to show in this contest as Auger-Aliassime looks to make a statement and advance into the quarterfinals of the 2022 Montreal Open.
