The youngest player in the draw, Felix Auger-Aliassime showed a maturity beyond his years as he outplayed British No. 2 Cameron Norrie. The Brit got off to a slow start against the young Canadian, who swiftly took charge of the first set with a 3-0 lead and staring in control of the set.

Norrie could only bring up one break point chance against Auger-Aliassime but could not make it count as the youngster wrapped up the first set to love. That momentum stayed with Auger-Aliassime as he broke before the first change of ends in the second set.

Auger-Aliassime looked to be having no trouble not only adjusting from clay to the hard courts, but playing on a big stage, albeit early in the day. He played fearlessly throughout hitting hard through the court, while Norrie seemed to be at his behest, being pulled around the court and unable to get into any kind of rhythm, much less find a way through the Canadian’s shot-making.

Norrie once more had a single chance to make his mark, and as that went begging, the Canadian delivered the final point with another break, before serving out the match to love in a confident display.

British hopes in the ATP main draw now rest with Dan Evans and Kyle Edmund with Evans having come through qualifying. Edmund is seeded with a bye into the second round.

Play continues at Indian Wells at 11am (7pm GMT).
