Norrie vs Johnson: prediction for the Wimbledon match
Home favorite Cameron Norrie didn't deliver very successful results at the Cinch Championships or Eastbourne International. However, he so far is doing well at the London Major. In the first round, Norrie closed Pablo Andujar in three straight sets. After that, he needed five sets to defeat Jaume Munar.
Steve Johnson got an easy pass to the second round of the current tournament. His first opponent Grigor Dimitrov withdrew from the competition during the second set. In his second match, Johnson celebrated success over Ryan Peniston - the American confidently won in three sets. While Johnson has been playing well lately, he has remained an inconsistent player, making it difficult to predict how he will perform in the upcoming match.
In 4 of Johnson's last 6 matches, no tie-breaks were played.
In 4 of Norrie's last 5 matches, more than 9 games were played in the first set.
Johnson had a good performance in the previous match, but then his opponent was Ryan Peniston, who is not a very prominent player. Everything will be different in the match against Norrie. We will be backing the home favorite here.
Our prediction - handicap (-4) to Norrie
4 of Johnson's last 6 matches ended in straight sets. We expect this to be over quickly, too and suggest taking the under.
Second prediction - total under 40.5 games
