Norrie vs Sonego (By: Iniestaone)
Third round match from ATP Monte Carlo between Norrie (#56) and Sonego (#96)
I've put these two's performances in consideration and my conclusion is that Sonego will win this in two sets. Norrie has produced two good results in straight set wins against Mannarino and Fucsovics but I can't help but feel that those wins are inflating the odds a bit here, Mannarino was serving at 52% first serve and Fucsovics's first serve stats were 47%.
Meanwhile, I think Sonego's performances against Seppi and Khachanov were huge, he has the crowd behind him here and he is playing exceptional tennis at the moment. The mental strength he displayed against Khachanov is not to be taken for granted - he saved 7/8 breakpoints (88%) which i think he gave away at first because of the magnitude of the match as he isn't used to competing evenly against top tier players yet.
Sonego also has the obvious surface advantage over Norrie which helped him a lot against Khachanov, Norrie is 4/4 on clay this season but 19/13 in career overall and I don't think his 50% win rate is a fair representation of his skills on clay.
I have a good feeling about Sonego winning this one in two sets
