Great Britain’s Cameron Norrie upset third seed Stefanos Tsitsipas, of Greece, in straight sets to reach the final of the Abierto Mexicano Telcel Open on Friday and equal the biggest win of his career by terms of ranking,

The 26-year-old Norrie broke the fourth-ranked Tsitsipas in the ninth game of the first set and then repeated the same pattern in the second to complete the 6-4, 6-4 win in one hour and 18 minutes. The Brit saved the only break point he faced against his serve while converting 2 of the 3 break point chances he had during the match.

After poor start to season, Norrie has rebounded with eight wins in a row

Norrie started off the season losing his first four matches, going 0-3 at the ATP Cup and then going down in the first round of the Australian Open. But after he reached the quarter-finals in Rotterdam, Norrie has now won eight matches in a row. He won the Delray Beach Open on Sunday and will be looking to win his second title on the trot against Sunday.

The Brit will meet either top seed Daniil Medvedev, who becomes the new world No 1 in men’s tennis on Monday, or fourth seed Rafael Nadal, the reigning Australian Open champion.

Ranked a career-high No 12 in the world right now. Norrie will break into the world’s top 10 for the first time if he wins the ATP 500 event on Sunday.
