Cameron Norrie reaches first Masters final in Indian Wells to back up British No 1 ranking


Cameron Norrie has made his first-ever Masters 1000 final. The Brit beat former world No 3 Grigor Dimitrov 6-2 6-4 to reach the championship match in Indian Wells. He is now set to break into the world’s top 20 and overtake Dan Evans as the British No 1 for the first time in his career.

Norrie has already been having his most successful season yet, and is now enjoying his best tournament in Indian Wells.

The current world No 26 had never made a Masters 1000 quarter-final and has now booked a spot in Sunday’s (October 17) final.

He had already beat 15th seed Roberto Bautista Agut and 11th seed Diego Schwartzman en route to the last-four, with his win over the Argentine securing Norrie the British No 1 ranking.

The 26-year-old looked dominant against Schwartzman in the previous round as he dropped just two games, and he showed an equally-impressive display against former Masters and ATP Finals champion Dimitrov.
