Paul vs Norrie: prediction for the ATP Indian Wells match
Tommy Paul made it to the last 16 despite having very difficult opponents in the first rounds. In the previous match, Paul went against Andrey Rublev and won in three sets, demonstrating beautiful attacking play (6-4, 3-6, 7-5). In his other matches at the Indian Wells Masters, Paul defeated Feliciano Lopez (6-3, 7-6) and Dusan Lajovic (6-2, 6-3).
Cameron Norrie is having a great season. The Briton has significantly improved his performance over the past year and climbed up to 26th place in the ATP world ranking. At the current Masters, Norrie has played two three-set matches. In the second round, Norrie defeated Tennys Sandgren (6-4, 5-7, 6-0), and then outplayed the uncompromising Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut (6-4, 5-7, 6-3).
Norrie hasn't played tie-breaks in the last 5 matches.
Paul played under 9.5 games in the first period in 3 of his last 5 matches.
Paul leads the head-to-head at 2-0, but Norrie is considered the favorite of the match. Norrie is more consistent in this season, however, he lost a set to both his opponents at the Indian Wells. We suggest playing Paul's victory with a positive handicap.
Our prediction - Paul to win with a handicap (+4)
Prediction: Handicap (+4) to Paul
