After the end of the clay part of the season, Norrie continues to show good tennis on grass. At the current tournament in London, Cameron has already earned two victories. Moreover, the British tennis player was matched against quite serious opponents. In the first round, Norrie beat the Spaniard Albert Ramos-Vinolas (4-6, 6-3, 6-4), and in the second round, he defeated the Russian Aslan Karatsev (7-5, 6-2).
At the age of 19, Draper is starting to take part in ATP tournaments. Before that, the young Briton played exclusively at different Challengers and he did it quite well. At the current competition, Jack has already made two sensations, beating two players from the top 40 of the world ranking. In the first round, Draper defeated Italian Jannik Sinner in two tie-breaks, and in the second round, he beat Alexander Bublik also in two tie-breaks.

Draper has played two excellent matches at the current tournament in London. In the first round, he beat Sinner, then dealt with Bublik. Jack beat both tennis players in two tie-breaks. The Briton keeps his serve well and we believe that he will be able to compete with Norrie in the upcoming match. Moreover, he had already beaten Norrie before.
Our prediction is Draper to win with a handicap (+3.5)
Both of Draper's matches at the current London Open were high-scoring. The Briton keeps his serve well and that is why Jack has already played four tie-breaks in London. We expect something similar in the upcoming match.
