ATP Lyon Quarterfinal Predictions Including Sebastian Baez vs Cameron Norrie

Cameron Norrie Citi Open

Just eight men remain in contention for the trophy at the ATP 250 in Lyon, France. The 2023 Lyon Open has been fiercely contested so far and does not look like it’s going to change in the coming three days. As ever, we at LWOT preview and predict all four quarterfinal clashes for you.

ATP Lyon Quarterfinals Predictions

Francisco Cerundolo vs Jack Draper

Head to head – First Meeting

Jack Draper has had two good wins this week and the Brit will be hoping to go on to reach a well deserved semi finals spot. He takes on Francisco Cerundolo who plays his sublime best on the clay courts and he is well rested after only having to play a single set before his opponent retired. Expect Draper to take it to Cerundolo but the Argentine’s consistent quality should propel him towards the win.
Prediction: Cerundolo in 3

Brandon Nakashima vs Tommy Paul

Head to head – Nakashima 1-0 Paul

Aside from a finals appearance in a Challenger event for Tommy Paul, neither player has played well on the clay courts in 2023. Brandon Nakashima looked woefully out of form before winning two good matches. He plays his American compatriot who has had a decent 2023 and he’s a much better clay courter than the results show. Expect Paul to showcase the same.
Prediction: Paul in 2

Felix Auger-Aliassime vs Arthur Fils

Head to head – First Meeting

Felix Auger-Aliassime looked good in his first round match win and the Canadian will be looking nothing short of winning the title to boost his chances at the French Open. Arthur Fils didn’t have to do much in reaching the quarterfinals after his opponent defaulted out of the match. Expect Fils to be outplayed by the power and aggressiveness of the Canadian.
Prediction: Auger-Aliassime in 2

Sebastian Baez vs Cameron Norrie

Head to head – Baez 0-1 Norrie

This should be an interesting matchup in what is a rematch of last year’s quarter-final here. Sebastian Baez endured a gruelling three setter but he’ll be happy with the win. Cameron Norrie will be looking to this week to get his season back on track with a confident win in his first match here. Expect Baez to put up a fight but Norrie to outclass the Argentine eventually.
Prediction: Norrie in 2
