Roger Federer and Cameron Norrie meet Saturday in the third round of the 2021 tennis Wimbledon.
Roger Federer is coming off a straight sets win over Richard Gasquet that took 30 games to decide. In the victory, Federer won 84 percent of his first serve points and 58 percent of his second serve points. Federer won 74 percent of his total service points and converted on three of his six break points. Federer saved all five of his break points and hit 10 aces. A much cleaner showing from Federer, who is now in his seventh straight Wimbledon third round. Federer hasn’t been bounced before the fourth round of a grand slam since the 2015 Australian Open. Federer has won 10 of his last 12 matches on grass court.
Cameron Norrie is coming off a straight sets win over Alex Bolt that took 24 games to decide. In the victory, Norrie won 72 percent of his first serve points and 73 percent of his second serve points. Norrie won 72 percent of his total service points and converted on seven of his 12 break points. Norrie faced just two break points and had just 10 unforced errors. It’s that sort of clean tennis that would give Norrie a chance here. Norrie has two career wins over top-10 players, with one of those wins coming this year. Norrie looks to make his first career grand slam fourth round appearance. Norrie has won six of his last seven matches on grass court.
These two have played once, which was in the 2018 Hopman Cup. Federer won the match in straight sets and 14 sets.
Norrie should have some support from the home crowd here, but that’s not going to be enough. Assuming Federer has knocked off the rust and is going to serve how he did his last time out, he should roll here. Norrie has yet to prove he can win on the big stage and his return game seems to come and go.
Give me Federer in straight sets.
