The Canadians will face England in the second round of the ATP Cup group stage. Quite an interesting encounter, both in general and the duel of the first rackets, is of great interest, as two representatives of the top 20 ATP ranking meet.Get Your Welcome Bonus!
Felix Auger-Aliassime current form
Auger lost to Fritz, and the Canadian team lost to the US team, with a 0-3 draw. Now the Maple Leafs don't have a good chance of making the ATP Cup play-offs, but as long as the chances are there, the Canadians will probably do everything they can to succeed. Auger lost to Fritz in three sets, which lasted two and a half hours. The Canadian won the first game on a tie-break but could not hold on to his advantage, losing the next two games. Recall that the last tournament for the Canadian in 2021 was Stockholm, and a loss to Shapovalov on November 12.
Cameron Norrie current form
Unlike Auger, Norrie has become a member of the Davis Cup 2021. The Briton beat Lehecka and Rinderknech in late November 2021 but lost to Struff in three sets. Cameron began his ATP Cup-2022 journey with a three-set loss to Alexander Zverev. In the first set, Norrie gave the German a real fight. Zverev only won the set on a tie-break. In the second set, Cameron managed to take only one game, losing the match 1-6. Great Britain took a 2-1 lead over the German team.
I enjoyed it - it was great to play here. And Alex was too good for me. But it was fun on the bench. I got good comments. I had fun, and it was a great doubles game in the end. Great tennis, the guys showed what they could do. So I'm happy to be a part of it all. It was great to get revenge after the recent Davis Cup defeat.

Expert Betting Tips
Auger-Aliassime beat Norrie twice on hard court at Indian Wells and the Vienna tournament. But despite these statistics, the Canadian is widely regarded as the underdog in the upcoming game, and undeservedly so. Auger had a good match against Fritz, lost in an even contest, but it can hardly be said that the Canadian is in bad form. Norrie was not bad in the first match set against Zverev, but in the second game, the Briton banal failed. Cameron's current tone is not as good as last season's end. We believe that bookmakers slightly overestimate Cameron's capabilities. Here are the odds for this meeting: W1+Total Over (20.5) for 2.81, Handicap 1 (1.5) for 1.80.
