It was third time unlucky for the British No. 2 Cameron Norrie as he was denied a maiden title by the No. 2 seed Stefanos Tsitsipas in the final.

It had been another landmark run on the clay for the Brit, reaching his second final on the surface this season, beating Dominic Thiem and Karen Khachanov on his way to the final, but the in-form Greek was just a step too far.

Both started with purpose, bringing up break points in the first two games of the set before a keenly contested first set went the way of Tsitspas with a break in the penultimate game before closing out the lead.

Norrie stayed toe-to-toe with him, and no sign of a break for either until a slight dip for Norrie which allowed Tsitsipas to break him twice for the match and the title.

Tsitsipas has won all five of the ATP 250 finals he has contested, but for Norrie, the search continues for that elusive first title, having made finals in Auckland (2019) and earlier this year in Estoril.

Norrie withdrew from next week’s tournament in Parma, and will next play at Roland Garros, which begins on 30th May.
