Cameron Norrie def. Grigor Dimitrov 7-5, 7-5
Cameron Norrie pulled off one of the upsets of the men’s draw so far as he booked his place in the last thirty-two of the Miami Open. The Brit played a tactically sound match to defeat No. 9 seed Grigor Dimitrov in their very first meeting.
Dimitrov looked to be in control early on, dominating a lot of the points from the off, but Norrie stuck in it and began to take the game to the Bulgarian. The Brit barely allowed Dimitrov to claim cheap points, forcing him to hit one more shot as the mental challenge became increasingly tougher for the ninth-seed. Norrie stayed composed to gain an important one set lead.
The second set saw the physical element come into play as the long, gruelling rallies became more frequent. Just like the first set, Norrie managed him game exceptionally well and held his nerve to close out the contest in straight sets. An extremely high first serve percentage (78%) aided Norrie in claiming his 13th victory of the season.
Preview: Norrie v Taylor Fritz  | H2H: Norrie leads 3-2
The British no. 3’s next encounter will be against home favourite and 22nd-seeded Taylor Fritz, a player he has beaten more often than not. There is no reason why Norrie can’t claim another scalp and reach the last sixteen of a Masters event for the first time since Monte Carlo in 2019.
The 25-year-old has lost just six times in 19 matches this season and has won four out of his last five, so he has to be feeling confident with himself at the moment. Fritz will also be full of belief after he bulldozed his way to the third round for the loss of just four games.
The pair have met on five separate occasions, all within the last three seasons. Norrie has won the last two, although they are tied 2-2 on outdoor hard courts.
