Norrie vs Fritz (By: Iniestaone)
First round match from Australian Open between Norrie (#93) and Fritz (#50)
Yesterday Norrie lost to Sandgren in the finals in Auckland. He has had to melt that final loss and fly to Melbourne and get everything in order for this first round match that will be played tomorrow morning. I think its far too short of a time for everything to click as it should and I see him losing his opening match.
Norrie defeated Fritz in Auckland on the 10th very narrowly, he won the first set 7-6 and won the second 6-3 after breaking him once. That was also one of the quite rare matches where Fritz could not utilize his serve fully and without his serve he is not much of a player. I don't see that happening again in such a short time. He's had more time to prepare for this three set match that will be exhausting for Norrie after his huge run in Auckland.
