Norrie was not on the list of top contenders for the title in New York. However, the Brit made it to the fourth round without giving a single set. Cameron knocked Paire, Sousa, and Rune out. The Dane could have fought the Brit, but no. Norrie beat Rune in two hours and 13 minutes, 7-5, 6-4, 6-1. Norrie made seven aces and three double faults and won 77% of his first-serve points and 48% of his second-serve points. On the receiving end, the British player had the following statistics: 43%/56%, 26/22 of winners/unforced errors.
Rublev has already played two 5-set matches at the US Open - in the first round against Djere and the third against Shapovalov. In the second round, Andrey confidently defeated Kwon Soon-woo in three games. Judging by the rest before the upcoming game, Rublev does not have the advantage. The match against Denis lasted more than four hours. The guys played two tie-breaks, including in the decisive fifth game. By the way, in the fifth set, Andrey won the tie-break game 10:7. He fired nine times on the court, made four double faults, and won 74% of points on the first serve with 46% on the second. He got 21%/50% on the receiving end, 38/37 of winners/unforced errors.
First of all, Rublev needs to recover. If he recovers, he can win. Of course, the Brit is a dangerous player for Andrey, and he's a world-ten player. Rublev is more stable and robust. The main thing is for the nervous system to be restored because the attention will depend on it, so there won't be any mistakes. Attention, in this case, means three things: concentration, switching, and stability. If Andrey is okay with this, he can win.

Expert Betting Tips
Norrie looks more confident at the US Open than Andrey Rublev. In addition, the British came to the upcoming game fresher, winning three times with a score of 3-0, while Rublev has already played twice at 3-2 and to hold another long match for Andrey may be a big problem.
