Cameron Norrie vs Rafael Nadal Predictions


It will be an all left-hander clash as Rafael Nadal takes on Cameron Norrie for a place in the last 16 at the Australian Open.

Norrie has battled past 30th seed Dan Evans and qualifier Roman Safiullin but is likely to find himself completely outclassed by Nadal, who is 115-16 vs left-handed players.

Nadal had injury concerns coming into this tournament but has looked completely comfortable so far.

  • Cameron Norrie is 1-9 vs top-10 opponents
  • Rafael Nadal has won 6 of his last 8 Grand Slam matches by a margin of -9.5 games or more
  • Rafael Nadal has seen under 26.5 games in 6 of last 9 Grand Slam matches 

Head to Head


This will be the first meeting between Rafael Nadal and Cameron Norrie.

Cameron Norrie Form


Norrie upset compatriot Dan Evans in the first round, impressing with a smart and controlled performance against the 30th seed. 

In the second round he coped well with a match that was moved from an outside court to Margaret Court Arena after being interrupted by rain. Norrie came back from a set down to beat improving Russian Roman Safiullin 3-6, 7-5, 6-3, 7-6(3). 

Norrie is playing well in 2021 and is a dogged competitor. But he is 1-9 vs top-10 players and part of the reason is that he simply doesn’t have big weapons to hurt them. This does not look like a good match-up for him.

Rafael Nadal Stats


Nationality: Spain
Age: 34 (3 June 1986)
Height: 6’1” (185cm)
Plays: Left-handed
World Ranking: 2
Career High: 1 (August 2008)
Career ATP Singles Titles: 86
Career Grand Slam Singles Titles: 20 (13 French Open, 4 US Open, 2 Wimbledon, 1 Australian Open)
2021 Titles: 0
Australian Open Best Result: Champion (2009)

Rafael Nadal Form


Nadal pulled out of the ATP Cup where he was supposed to lead Spain, and struggled to practice due to a lower back injury. But the 2009 champion has looked in very strong form at the Australian Open so far.

Nadal dropped eight games against Laslo Djere in the first round. Against Michael Mmoh in the second, he played some sensational tennis to win 6-1, 6-4, 6-2. He did not concede a single break point and won 84% of points behind his first serve. 

This is a particularly significant stat considering his serve would be the thing worst affected by a lower back problem.
